The Clean Energy Outreach Fellow will aid SJCE’s Account Management, Marketing and Communications team by supporting initiatives to:
• educate the general public about SJCE, the benefits of Community Choice Energy, and program offerings using diverse communications channels, including social media and newsletters;
• advocate for policy positions and important legislation with key stakeholders; and
• enroll new customer groups in 2020.

The Outreach Representative will learn about SJCE’s customer programs and benefits by working with staff, but will also work independently and with other staff on their focus area. They will be assigned to work with a manager based on their focus area. This is an opportunity to gain experience and understanding of the renewable electricity utility industry, public (government) sector programs, climate and energy legislation, environmental initiatives, and community outreach and engagement.

Ideal candidates will be self-starters with an ability to work independently while meeting deadlines. Candidates should be comfortable working with diverse stakeholders and have a general understanding of renewable energy, climate change and sustainability. Candidates should also have strong written and verbal communications, creative thinking, and research skills. Fellows will be required to learn about SJCE and be able to communicate SJCE’s benefits, vision and programs when necessary. The fellowship position will have no supervisory responsibilities.

The position will involve writing, public engagement and education, and staffing community events. Duties will include writing content for SJCE's social media platforms (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Nextdoor), news releases, blog and newsletters as well as tabling events to engage audiences of different age ranges and interests.
