The Coalition for Clean Renewable and Affordable Heating and Cooling (CRAHC) is an informal coalition being founded by a set of non-governmental organisations to help incentivise the necessary transition to clean, decarbonized renewable heating and cooling at the European level.
We support our member organisations to carry out activities that contribute to the public debate on climate action, driving urgent and ambitious policy in support of the objective to reduce and phase out greenhouse gases from the heating and cooling sectors, currently responsible for roughly half of the EU’s energy use. In parallel we support the delivery of a socially responsible heating and cooling transition and engage in EU based communications and advocacy on the transition.
We are focusing on engaging and hiring great people from diverse backgrounds to strengthen the cause. If you share our values of respect, innovation, and collaboration, join us.
The Coalition is currently accepting applications for an experienced policy officer to support the Coalition’s policy development and advocacy work. The contract is initially for one year, with the possibility for renewal.
Working very closely with the Coalition team and policy officers from the membership, the successful candidate will implement policy plans and campaigns to help speed up the transition to zero-emission heating and cooling at the EU level.
You’ll need to work in particular with the Coalition Coordinator and possess a proven interest and policy experience in the energy field, ideally with knowledge of heating and cooling issues, at the EU level. You'll be working as part of a small, fast-paced, European team that operates at the EU level and across all EU policy making arenas.
You'll need to bring an excellent understanding of how to create political impact through EU policy advocacy and campaigning, as well as a network of relevant EU policymakers and other stakeholders on the issue.
This role would suit candidates with a background in energy policy making and/or campaigning. If you think this sounds like you, please apply!
Reporting to the Coalition Coordinator, the Policy Officer in close cooperation with the communicators will be responsible for:
Brussels; remote working is the likely operational mode. You must have the relevant work permit for Belgium.
Please submit your CV and a short cover letter explaining why you would be suited to the position (PLEASE NOTE: this is a temporary email address that will be deleted after the deadline).
The deadline for applications is 25.9.2023.
Please note only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.
All applications will be treated confidentially. We will store your information in our internal database unless you specifically request otherwise.
We are committed to diversity and inclusion in our organisation. We strongly encourage candidates from historically disadvantaged or marginalised groups to apply.
