Would you like to help create a brighter future for nature?

We’re looking for a Policy Officer (or Senior Policy Officer) to help develop and promote environmental policy on behalf of our 82 environmental charity members.

The Government has promised to halt the decline of nature by 2030. This role is about making sure the urgent action needed to meet that pledge is delivered.

Your job will be to convene some of England’s best environmental policy experts to agree bold and effective shared policy positions. There will be lots of thinking, lots of writing, and lots of opportunities to shape shared campaigns. You will also play a key role in delivering those messages to key influencers in Government and in Parliament.

So, we’re looking for someone with a keen eye for detail, the ability to listen and negotiate, and a reasoned and convincing style of written and verbal communication.

The role is likely to focus on one of the following policy areas – access to nature; nature-based solutions; climate change; or environmental economics – but we can consider another policy focus for the right candidate.

We particularly welcome applications from candidates from under-represented backgrounds, including people of colour, disabled people and those from a low-income background, to be part of our small, friendly and collaborative team.

Find more information and how to apply here. To apply, please send your CV, with a short covering letter and a completed diversity monitoring form by 9am on Monday 22 April.
