Field Canvassers

MPA is hiring field organizers in Portland and Bangor to make a difference on issues that matter to everyday Mainers. Our success hinges on our ability to engage everyday people in a powerful and strategic grassroots campaign. Field organizing is the foundation of our grassroots infrastructure, allowing us to recruit members, raise money, generate grassroots action and build political power amongst key constituencies.

Qualifications: Excellent communication skills.

Our field organizers will have the opportunity to talk with hundreds of Maine people, organize press conferences, lobby our state and national representatives, and learn what it takes to be a great organizer.  Current campaign positions are focused on identifying and mobilizing voters to support progressive economic policies like raising the minimum wage, but there are also opportunities for employment beyond the current campaign and for career-building advancement. We have leadership/career opportunities available for those that demonstrate the commitment and skills to excel at the job. Pay ranges from $480 per week.
