Rewilding Britain - Chief Operating Officer
Rewilding Britain is a charitable organisation tasked with protecting our living world and our climate through the act of rewilding. The approach is threefold; catalysing rewilding in practice, influencing policy and legislation, and engaging people to take action. We ‘think big and act wild’ and in doing so punch well above our weight as an environmental charity. We are growing very rapidly in our supporter base, landholder engagement and position of influence.
We are now seeking an exceptional Chief Operating Officer (COO) to join the leadership team to navigate rapid growth successfully and provide valuable operational leadership, reporting directly to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Your drive and talents will enable you to lead and expand a high performing team, put in place systems to improve the productivity of the organisation and to manage day-to-day operations. Your presence and collaboration with our CEO will enable her to apply more of her focus to the medium to longer term strategy and external communications with key stakeholders. We are seeking an individual with exceptional leadership skills, resourcefulness, and past executive-level experience within a rapid growth organisation or start-up. We are also looking for somebody who relishes the challenge of a fast-paced changing environment and easily forms strong relationships with team members, within the context of a mostly remote working environment. This is an exciting opportunity to join our fast growing charity and directly contribute to the growth of the rewilding movement.
