Our Bright Future is an ambitious and innovative partnership led by The Wildlife Trusts which brings together the youth and environmental sectors. This £33 million programme funded by the National Lottery Community Fund is formed of 31 projects from across the UK. Each project will support young people (aged 11-24) across the UK to gain vital skills and experience and improve their wellbeing. At the same time, they act as catalysts for delivering change for their local environment and community, whilst contributing to a greener economy. We have a vision, that the programme will ignite long term change in the way in which we invest in our young people and the environment by increasing the ability of young people to improve places that are important to them and to influence the attitudes and decisions that shape their neighbourhoods and communities.

We are seeking a Campaigns Officer to deliver high-profile national campaigns in relation to the Our Bright Future programme and its three policy asks. You will build and deliver campaign actions, creating on and off-line engagement tools and key messaging.

You’ll be responsible for developing campaign planning documents, managing allocated resources and you’ll oversee the development and production of campaign materials, publications and online content. 

We are seeking an experienced campaigner who can apply policy and public affairs thinking to deliver effective public facing campaigns. It is essential that you have experience of managing customer relationships, negotiating, influencing and making decisions along with experience of applying movement building and / or grassroots campaigning techniques within a charity. You’ll have an interest in, and passion for, the natural world and youth engagement. You’ll be highly organised, enabling you to plan and prioritise accordingly.

The Wildlife Trusts is a grassroots movement of 800,000 members, 43,000 volunteers and 2,000 staff across the UK dedicated to this vision and driven by our beliefs. We value courage, respect, integrity, trust and responsibility. 

We value courage, respect, integrity, trust and responsibility. Whilst we are passionate in promoting our aims, we are not judgemental, and we are inclusive. Our society is divided, and The Wildlife Trusts want to reduce, not increase, that division.
