The Clean Energy Finance Campaigner will be a vital member of our small team, working closely with allies and partners in the global North and South, and engaging with the IFIs’ staff, management and member governments. The Campaigner will collaborate with other Recourse staff and will report to Recourse’s Clean Energy Campaign Manager.

This is an exciting and challenging role, involving work with Southern partners, research, advocacy and international travel.

  • Produce high-quality advocacy, research, and communications materials.
  • Work with partners and allies to influence decision-makers at the IFIs, including staff, management, and member governments.
  • Build collaborative relationships with civil society partners in the global North and South, with a focus on energy poor countries and those which rely heavily on fossil fuels.
  • Coordinate Big Shift’s renewable energy working group focused on engaging MDBs on their clean energy investments.
  • Organise events, meetings, panels and workshops, and supporting Southern partners’ engagement in key events.
  • Assist in managing campaign budgets and support fundraising efforts.
  • May be required to manage additional staff in future for the campaign.



  • Fluent in written and spoken English.
  • Proven research and writing skills.
  • Excellent communicator.
  • Proven experience of evidence-based policy and advocacy work related to renewable energy and climate finance issues.
  • Familiarity with the International Financial Institutions.
  • Strong interest in and commitment to environmental and social justice and human rights, including gender sensitivity.
  • Minimum 3 years’ experience with advocacy and campaigning.
  • Excellent team player, with good networking and communication skills.
  • Ability to work independently and be self-directed.
  • Experience working with communities and civil society organisations, especially to support linking of on-the-ground issues to national- and international-level change.
  • Willingness to help with logistical and administrative tasks as needed.
  • Ability to travel up to 4 weeks per year.


  • Experience of engaging a diverse array of stakeholders, such as civil society groups, clean energy and energy access communities, IFI decision makers and shareholders. 
  • Experience of working in the global South.
