CPRE fights for a better future for England’s unique, essential and precious countryside.

It is an exciting time to join CPRE - we are looking at how to reach new audiences and supporters, are expanding our campaigns function and welcomed a new Chief Executive towards the end of 2017.

Our Litter Programme delivers nationally-recognised campaigns against litter and waste, whilst promoting evidence-based solutions. We were part of the coalition that successfully campaigned for the introduction of the carrier bag charge and have led the campaigning on deposit return systems for drinks containers since 2008.

We are now seeking a strategically minded, creative Campaigns Officer to help deliver the Programme’s extensive work. During a time of change for the organisation, you will help move public opinion and influence government policy on key waste and resource issues - from deposit return systems and single-use – and work with local government on delivering a pilot project based on systems change thinking. You’ll work across teams internally, as well as being responsible for coordinating external partnerships.

Knowledge of waste and resources issues will be helpful, but more important is having a campaigner’s mind-set, an eye for opportunities and a collaborative, pragmatic approach.

CPRE's mission is to promote, enhance and protect the English Countryside. We believe that a beautiful, tranquil, diverse and productive countryside is fundamental to people's quality of life, wherever they live and we campaign nationally and locally for positive solutions for the long-term future of the countryside.

If you would like to apply for this role, please complete the application form referring to the information found in the role profile. CVs will not be considered. Job Ref: CO-(LIT)ej
