About the Climate Psychology Alliance

The Climate Psychology Alliance (CPA) is a membership organisation whose purpose is to explore psychological responses to the climate crisis in order to strengthen relationships and resilience for a just future. CPA has over 500 members who are predominantly from the psychological professions and psychosocial and arts academics, but we welcome anyone exploring the psychology and soul of our current ecological crisis. We see the climate and ecological crisis as inextricably linked with racism and coloniality, and have a commitment to decolonising our own working practices. This central role co-ordinates the internal and external communication around our work.

Our work falls into the following six areas:

  1. Support to individuals and groups suffering with eco distress and offer safe spaces to share emotions surrounding the climate crisis.
  2. Young people – we are especially concerned with the impact of the climate crisis on young people.
  3. Research and reflection on the psychological impact of the climate crisis and climate injustice.
  4. Training and events – continuing professional development and educational and community development.
  5. Talks and consultancy for organisations and businesses.
  6. Membership with the opportunity for co-creation and making links to support members’ work on the climate crisis.
The main tasks of the job

This role is at the centre of the culture of care that CPA seeks to create in its work and working practices. You will lead on our internal and external communications, working closely with the voluntary co-ordinating group, which meets weekly, and you will have regular supervision.

The role involves the following:

  1. Co-ordinating and supporting the hosting and promotion of CPA public events and meetings, mostly online: for example Climate Cafes and training, Youth support work, Living with the Climate Crisis and Through the Door trainings and support workshops.
  2. Membership processes for new members joining, and for renewals, using the Mighty Networks platform, Google group and maintenance of the membership and board registers on MailChimp.
  3. Co-ordinating and supporting within membership private CPA events that run from the community platform on Mighty Networks.
  4. Key to this work is contributing to relationship and connection and nurturing a caring working culture of social equity that seeks to amplify marginal and ethnically diverse voices.
  5. General admin and communications including being the first point of contact for enquiries, directing the enquiries appropriately and monitoring progress on responses; keeping the website up to date including the Therapeutic Support directory; managing the membership mailings including the monthly digest and the monthly newsletter.
  6. Social media support – social media presence is shared between a group of members so the role is to help co-ordinate this group.
  7. Board Secretary support – co-ordinating meetings including agenda and minutes, zoom links and making sure papers go out to Board members and to the membership as appropriate.
  8. Support for Treasurer in managing membership and events financing. The bookkeeping and payroll are outsourced but your role could include making sure appropriate information, invoicing etc goes to the right people.

There is a comprehensive set of handover materials provided by the previous co-ordinator, which would support you as you get started in the job.
