About us

We are the only independent charity dedicated to securing the future of National Parks in England and Wales. Our independence from government means we can speak out for Protected Landscapes when no-one else can. Our mission is clear: we’re here to unite, inspire and empower everyone to take action and enjoy wilder National Parks.

We recognise that the environment sector is under-represented by people of colour, those from low income backgrounds, LGBTQ+ and disabled people and we want to change that. So, we especially welcome candidates from these backgrounds and operate ‘blind recruitment’, following best practice in equality, diversity and inclusion.

Work/life balance is really important to us and everyone in our team has a flexible working arrangement so that our work fits in with our lives. We offer: home working, support including an Employee Assistant Programme, and an enhanced holiday allowance and pension contribution. Above all, by joining our team you can make a big difference – we’re a small organisation and everyone in the team has a big say in what we do and how we do it.
