Who is Efficiency Canada?
Efficiency Canada is the national voice for an energy efficient economy. Efficiency is a low-cost and abundant energy resource that must become top of mind amongst policymakers and consumers for Canada to move to a low carbon economy.
Housed at Carleton University, part advocacy organization, part think-tank, part data-driven start-up, Efficiency Canada advocates to make our country a global leader in energy efficiency. We convene people from across Canadas economy to work together to advance policies required to take full advantage of energy efficiency. And we communicate the best research out there to build a more productive economy, sustainable environment, and better life for Canadians.
Our goal is to make energy efficiency through an economic lens top of mind for policy makers. To do that, we aim to make the complex, simple; the story, compelling; the stakeholders, heroes; the mundane, exciting.
We are looking for the BEST people to help achieve that goal.
If you are passionate about Canadas energy transition, you could be part of building a new organization to accelerate energy efficiency. If youre someone on the verge and ready to step into a leadership role, come join us!
We are building a fun, mission-oriented, and collaborative culture. There will be opportunities to learn, develop, and strategize. You will be part of the team at Efficiency Canada, and an extended network of sustainable energy allies and experts.
What do we want you to do?
The Communications and Media Relations Lead will perform the critical task of explaining the benefits of energy efficiency to the general public and policymakers. While energy efficiency is often communicated through a savings lens, there is an opportunity to augment the message through an economic lens. In addition, benefits such as greenhouse gas reductions, poverty alleviation and health improvements can contribute to the overall why efficiency message. Despite checking off a multitude of benefits, energy efficiency remains less visible than other sustainable energy solutions, which makes communicating challenging. Do you think that you are up for this challenge? We are looking for someone excited by this opportunity and can communicate a targeted message to several different audiences.
The Communications and Media Relations Lead will develop a strategy to communicate to the media, policymakers and Efficiency Canada Allies. Working closely with the rest of the team we will make energy efficiency a top of mind issue and mobilize energy efficiency constituencies.
The Communications and Media Relations Lead will be responsible for leading our strategies for media, social media and website (i.e. blog schedule), oversee campaign tactics, track media mentions, evaluate analytics and will work with the team to mobilize the energy efficiency industry.
