There is nothing more powerful than helping other people realise they can change their world. As a campaigner, it's your job to help people realise they can make a difference and give them the tools to do so.

Our natural world is in crisis - the climate is breaking down, our vital ecosystems are fragmented and damaged, our wildlife, plants, soil, air, seas and rivers are suffering, and so are we. We have very little time until we reach our planet's limits, so every person working to turn the ship around is playing an active role in saving the future of our planet and the next generation.

The RSPB's mission is to save nature and wildlife, and to empower more people to play their part.

Salary starting at £22,073 to £23,912 per annum
Hours: Full time
Contract: Permanent

We are looking for someone passionate about the environment, with experience in campaigning and communications to help us mobilise our supporters for nature. We need someone who:

  • is keen to learn and get stuck in
  • is confident in distilling complex policy messages into engaging and inspiring stories for the public,
  • has a good understanding of politics and the mechanisms to create change,
  • can work in big teams to deliver a campaign
  • is confident talking to people outside the organisation and helping them to campaign too,
  • has sufficient IT literacy and can learn how to build online campaign actions and emails.

Additional Background:

2020 is a super-year for nature and climate. We need to progress environmental and agircultural legislation in all the UK countries post-Brexit, and we need to secure highly ambitious international commitments at the UN biodiversity COP and Climate COP next autumn. These international summits will set the direction for the next decade, the crucial decade in meeting the 1.5 degrees target and to reverse species loss. Environmental laws, the food and farming system, and international commitments are key areas of work you will help with in the first year, as well as supporting the wider movement to take action for nature too.
