Environmental Campaign Office Director

Fund for the Public Interest

Los Angeles, California

Job Type Permanent
Salary Details The target annual compensation for this position is $35,750 or $48,000, depending on location.
Deadline Oct 13, 2023

We’re hiring Canvass Office Directors to work on some of the most important problems of our time – tackling climate change, eliminating plastic waste that is polluting our oceans, ensuring we have clean air to breathe, clean water to drink, and more. We are hiring for immediate positions as well as positions starting throughout the year.

As a Canvass Office Director, you and the canvass staff you hire and train will have an important impact on these issues through face-to-face conversations with people on their doorsteps. We build the people power it takes to overcome powerful opposition standing in the way of solutions – you’ll fundraise, mobilize people to get involved, and support some of the country’s leading non-profit groups, including Environment America and PIRG. Being a Canvass Office Director requires that you work independently, exercise good judgment and work hard to meet your office’s staffing, campaign and fieldwork goals. 

Apply to work with us if you want to:

  • Educate and engage the public on campaigns like tackling climate change and moving beyond single-use plastics
  • Build support and fundraise for leading non-profit groups, including Environment America and PIRG
  • Hire, train and manage your own team
  • Work at the most effective citizen outreach operation in the country: We’ve raised over $700 million, run hundreds of campaigns in all 50 states, and educated and mobilized millions of people


We are looking for candidates who have leadership experience, excellent communication skills, and who want to work hard to make lasting, positive change on important issues.


We have an excellent training program, which starts with working in an existing canvass office and getting hands-on training. Directors may also receive classroom-style training on social change concepts and skills.

Throughout the year, new and experienced canvass directors may participate in advanced trainings on staff management, canvassing, campaign strategy, and other skills.


We work on campaigns and in locations that we think will make the biggest difference. We are running campaigns in CA, IL, MA, OR, and Washington, D.C. and hiring directors to expand into additional states like CO, NM, and more. 

Pay and Benefits

The target annual compensation for this position is $35,750 or $48,000, depending on location. The Fund offers an excellent benefits package. Our benefits package includes medical, dental, and vision insurance for employees and dependents, paid time off, our commuter benefit program, a 401(k) plan with employer match, parental leave and long-term disability insurance, and may include needs-based student loan assistance. Compensation and benefits may vary based on location and experience. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.
