What we are looking for:

Platform needs an organised and enthusiastic Impact Coordinator to help arrange screenings for the documentary Offshore. This is ultimately a project managing role, where the Coordinator will plan screenings, liaise with groups across the UK, promote the film and potentially facilitate discussions with participants at screenings. 

The film follows three North Sea Oil and Gas workers, exploring their hopes and fears for the coming energy transition. Offshore is a powerful tool for putting worker demands at the centre of the climate movement. The documentary by independent filmmaker Hazel Flack was chosen by the Documentary Society’s Climate Story Fund for impact funding. Your role is to help us deliver the impact campaign.

You will be responsible for supporting two of our key audiences – community and climate activists and eNGOs. You will promote Offshore among these groups, respond to requests to host screenings and work with community groups to ensure screenings are successful. You will also be involved in discussions that shape the next stages of our impact campaign as we strategize about how the film can support our campaign work and plan for a general public release.

We are looking for someone who is reliable, friendly, organised and genuinely excited about the potential impact Offshore. Please cite examples from outside of formal employment if they are most relevant.
