JOBS AT OCI

Oil Change International is a research, communications, and advocacy organization focused on exposing the true costs of fossil fuels and facilitating the ongoing transition to clean energy. Below are our currently open positions.

Regional Programs Director

Summary

Oil Change International (OCI) is seeking a Regional Programs Director to support our regional teams (currently United States, Asia, and Africa) in creating and implementing effective strategies to stop fossil fuel expansion. This position will assist our regional leads in achieving regional objectives, facilitate cross-region collaboration, and ensure strategic collaboration with our global policy and finance strategies to move governments, institutions, and financing away from fossil fuels. This position will work in partnership with the Global Campaigns Director.

Oil Change is currently focusing our region-specific work in the United States, Asia, and Africa as hotspots of production and finance and places where we have a depth of existing experience and connections. Our regional work supports movements and campaigns against fossil fuel infrastructure as well as interacting with our global policy and finance strategies to challenge the fossil fuel industry most effectively in each region. Oil Change International’s global policy and finance work targets international institutions, governments, the finance sector, and the industry itself to stop the expansion of the oil and gas industry and plan for a just and equitable phase-out of fossil fuel production in line with climate goals and climate justice.

The ideal candidate for this position will be a strong people manager with experience building campaign teams, supporting staff development, driving strategic visioning, and fostering a healthy, equitable, and sustainable team culture. This role will be internally focused, helping to make other staff on the team shine and encouraging others to take on public-facing leadership roles, rather than being a primary external representative for our regional campaigns.

The Regional Programs Director is responsible for supporting Oil Change International’s regional teams in delivering meaningful and significant advances in challenging the fossil fuel industry in those regions. The Regional Programs Director will initially support three regional teams in developing strategies to fight infrastructure projects, develop policy and finance focused campaigns, challenge the industry’s social license in each respective area and support movements. The Regional Programs Director will manage our U.S. and Asia program managers and work in close partnership with our Africa director. The position will also be a member of the organization’s senior leadership team.

Title: Regional Programs Director
Reports to: Executive Director
Application deadline: July 25, 2021; position will be open until filled.

Global Campaigns Director

Summary

Oil Change International (OCI) is seeking a Global Campaigns Director to support OCI’s global campaign areas (currently global policy, public finance, and fossil fuel industry) in creating and implementing aggressive, effective global campaigns to achieve a managed phase-out of fossil fuels in line with climate goals and climate justice. This position will coordinate our cross-cutting international strategies to move governments and institutions away from permitting and financing oil and gas extraction. This position will work in partnership with the Regional Programs Director.

Shortly after the Paris Agreement was signed, OCI released groundbreaking analysis showing that, even if global coal use is phased out overnight, the oil and gas in already-operating fields around the world would push us well above 1.5°C of warming. The implications for climate leaders are clear: Meeting the Paris goals will require stopping the expansion of the oil and gas industry and planning for a just and equitable phase-out of fossil fuel production. An increasing number of countries and public financial institutions are beginning to act towards these aims – for example, by banning new oil and gas licenses or ending finance for oil and gas projects. The oil and gas industry is also facing increasing challenges to its credibility and social license, creating new opportunities for strategic campaign efforts that can help accelerate the shift away from fossil fuels whilst ensuring a just transition.

The ideal candidate for this position will be a strong people manager with experience building campaign teams, supporting staff development, driving strategic visioning, and fostering a healthy, equitable, and sustainable team culture. This role will be internally focused, helping to make other staff on the team shine and encouraging others to take on public facing leadership roles, rather than being a primary external representative for our global campaigns.

The Global Campaigns Director is responsible for supporting Oil Change International’s three global campaign areas (public finance, global policy, industry) in delivering meaningful and significant advances in global policy change and challenging the fossil fuel industry. The Global Campaigns Director will support the campaign managers in developing strategies on global policy, public finance for fossil fuels, and fossil fuel industry-oriented campaigns as well as supporting coordination across these efforts. The Global Campaigns Director will directly manage at least 4 people and be a member of the organization’s senior leadership team.
