Extinction Rebellion recruitment

June 2019

Extinction Rebellion needs people to act in the face of the climate emergency.

They seek 3 or 4 people to take on the co-ordinator role, to share the work of organising actions in Sheffield. This means bringing the Actions Working Group together, maintaining contact with the members, liaising with other Sheffield Working Groups (like media/messaging, and the arts group), progressing agreed proposals for actions, and reporting back to all XR Sheffield members to encourage their participation.

The Finance/Fundraising Working Group needs help to manage XR Sheffield’s bank account and requests for spending, and take a leading role in organising fundraising activities. These are mainly social events, so there’s a lot of fun involved too. No prior financial experience is necessary.

The Recruitment Working Group are looking for someone to co-ordinate in the aim of mobilising 3.5% of the population to achieve system change. Members of this group talk to the public and give out leaflets at various local events, creating a calendar of events, organising members to do the leafleting, keeping leaflet text up to date, and liaising with the Diversity/Outreach Working Group on events

The Media/Messaging Working Group publicises actions on social media and in the local press. They need more people to help with this work. As a member, you would write press releases and liaise with local/regional media.

The Training and Talks Working Group seeks members to organise talks for members of the public and training for members (eg non-violent direct action, and being a meeting facilitator).
