Action Speaks Louder (ASL) is a not-for-profit galvanising people around the world to hold major corporations to account for their climate promises. We focus on pressuring corporations to walk the talk on climate, in order to help deliver international climate goals.
If we can pressure large consumer-facing, brand-sensitive corporations to live up to their climate commitments it will transform the landscape – dramatically reducing greenhouse gas emissions and boosting renewable energy procurement, whilst creating the political space for governments to increase ambition.
Action Speaks Louder has built a diverse team of campaigners across multiple countries, especially in the Asia Pacific region, and has a strong track record delivering outcomes from multinational companies.
We are committed to offering equal opportunities in a diverse, flexible, family-friendly, supportive working environment.
You can track a campaign target through your ability to map complex industry and regulatory environments. You are capable of understanding corporate growth strategy and how government regulations impact industry. You may have worked in media, health, aid and development, human rights, the trade union or environment movements, or the tech, manufacturing, auto or textiles industries.
You want to innovate and take on a new challenge. You are keen to develop and run cutting edge strategies and open a new frontier in climate advocacy. You like to build partnerships and take a proactive approach.
You can develop a deep understanding of technical policy details and communicate them confidently and accessibly to media and other audiences; but above all, you’re great at getting out there and convincing people to do good stuff.
You do not have a massive ego. You like to get things done efficiently, with no fuss and without someone looming over your shoulder.
ABOUT THE ROLE
This role is about leading our strategy to catalyse change in the global tech industry. Our aim is to press the global tech giants to rapidly shift to renewable energy across their operations and supply chains.

As part of the work you will build partnerships, develop and deliver effective campaigns, as well as identifying and shaping the capacity to make it happen. Whilst the initial focus of this role is tech, we are looking for a campaigner with a cross-sector skillset.
- More than five years’ demonstrated experience delivering high impact campaigns or projects.
- Demonstrated experience forming relationships with partners such as corporates that delivered on project outcomes.
- Experience managing multiple, diverse stakeholders.
- A proven track record of delivering earned media and contributing to engaging digital media content.
- Demonstrated project management experience where you delivered on tight deadlines that were crucial to the functioning of a larger project.
- Experience engaging with industry policy and strategy, with an understanding of how regulations influence business strategy and supply chains.
- Experience working in or with the tech sector
- Experience working in Asia, notably Japan, South Korea and China.
- Related language skills are a major plus.
