Director of Strategic Partnerships

Toronto (preferred), Calgary or Vancouver

The Pembina Institute is seeking a Director of Strategic Partnerships to join our senior management team and fill two key roles:

  • Lead a team of regional fund developers and their operational and administrative support team.
  • Lead fundraiser for the Ontario region and for the Institute’s annual unGALA event on an interim basis, with a view to hiring an additional person into this role no later than early 2018.

The Pembina Institute’s recent accomplishments in translating advocacy and compelling ideas into progressive climate and energy policy have put the organization on a growth trajectory. Funders are investing in larger, longer-term partnerships with us. This is an ideal time to seek a natural leader with the vision, experience, creativity and discipline to take us to the next level.

Reporting to the Executive Director, and working closely with the other senior managers and regional Strategic Partnership leads, this experienced and well-connected individual will drive partnership strategy, ensure consistency of approach, maintain accountability, and offer innovative flair to the Institute’s fund development efforts across the country and internationally, as well as across donor types, meticulously stewarding and growing our funder portfolio. Demonstrating a willingness to support the Pembina Institute’s mission, the successful candidate will be high performing, goal oriented, and excited by big fundraising opportunities and targets. Understanding the relationship between strategy and revenue development, this individual will insightfully leverage the interplay among strategy, communication and donor engagement.

The full-time position will require some travel and occasional work on evenings and weekends.

Technical and Policy Analyst – Clean economy, distributed electricity generation

Calgary or Edmonton

The Pembina Institute is seeking a highly motivated individual to join its Alberta team as a Technical and Policy Analyst with a focus on distributed electricity generation to undertake research and develop and advocate for solutions to accelerate Alberta’s transition to a clean energy economy. We are seeking a highly driven and resourceful person with a minimum of three years of relevant technical experience in energy/environment, strong analytical skills, a solid work ethic and a drive to succeed. The incumbent would support the Institute’s research and policy advocacy related to distributed generation and renewable energy. The candidate should have proven project management experience and the ability to thrive with limited supervision.

While this job posting is aimed at individuals who have between three and eight years of relevant experience, we are also interested in hearing from applicants who fall outside this range. We are open to challenging our preconceptions of this role to accommodate the right person.

After the historic climate policy change announcement by the Alberta government in 2015, the hard work of implementation has begun. We need people who can work with government, industry, aboriginal communities, and the non-government sector to successfully implement climate policy, advocate for progress on non-climate issues, and demonstrate to Albertans that a transition to a clean energy economy is inevitable and will create new and sustainable economic opportunities.

This full-time (40 hours per week) position is located in either our Calgary or Edmonton office and may require travel and overtime.

Application deadline: Midnight on July 1, 2017.
