Current Openings

Senior Communications Lead (Vancouver)

The Pembina Institute is seeking a politically astute strategic thinker with demonstrated media savvy and strong writing and editing skills to join our communications and engagement team. This highly collaborative position, based in Vancouver, B.C., requires a team player with strong interpersonal and leadership skills, positive energy, high degree of organization and ability to thrive in a fast-moving environment. The ideal candidate is someone who shows initiative by using their skills to advance the goals of the organization, while providing communications leadership, ideas and support for various program areas and specific projects.

Creating and executing strategy is an essential part of this role, and the ideal candidate will excel at big-picture thinking while also being detail-oriented. The senior communications lead is a key contact for journalists and members of the public for assigned regional and national goals, as well as a key instigator of mainstream, social and digital media efforts on priority issues, while interacting with other members of the communications team, the B.C. region staff, and staff across the organization on a regular basis.

The role, reporting to the communications director and working closely with the B.C. regional director, requires demonstrated strategic planning and project management skills, strong writing/editing ability, media experience, strategic communications experience, fluency in social media, and familiarity with emerging communications trends and digital publishing. The role also involves overseeing one direct report.

The ideal candidate will be passionate about Canadian energy and climate issues, have a strong understanding of provincial and federal politics, be familiar with B.C. and national media markets, and have a strong interest in our programs focused on building retrofits, clean energy, and climate policy.

Technical Director, Reframed Initiative (B.C.)

The Pembina Institute is seeking an ambitious and goal-driven individual to join its B.C. Reframed Initiative team as a Technical Director. We are assembling a market development team to accelerate the commercialization of ‘deep resiliency’ retrofits: integrated approaches to building retrofits that eliminate carbon pollution, increase extreme weather and earthquake resilience, improve indoor air quality, and preserve affordability. Inspired by the Dutch Energiesprong program (energiesprong.eu), this initiative brings together service providers, building owners, regulators, and financiers to pilot innovative approaches to retrofits and establish conditions for replication at scale. The initial focus will be on low-rise wood frame buildings, common in B.C.’s social housing and market rental housing stock.

Decarbonizing our building sector and preparing our infrastructure for a more unpredictable climate requires a paradigm shift in how we procure, finance, design, execute, and insure retrofit services. Both the provincial and federal governments are reinvesting billions of dollars to repair and upgrade our social housing infrastructure in the next ten years. This investment presents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to modernize the retrofit ecosystem so that new solutions can be deployed at scale.

We are looking for a results-oriented entrepreneurial individual able to work collaboratively to identify and demonstrate new innovative approaches to retrofit services, and to create systemic conditions allowing these approaches to be self-sustaining and deliverable at scale.
