The Endangered Landscapes Programme (ELP) is looking for an organised, creative and collaborative Programme Assistant (Capacity and Communications) to join their supportive and dynamic team in Cambridge, to support programme communications and assist with building the ELP grantee network of restoration practitioners.

The ELP is managed by the Cambridge Conservation Initiative, a collaboration between the University of Cambridge and nine leading biodiversity conservation organisations – based in central Cambridge’s David Attenborough Building. Predominantly a grant-making programme, the ELP was launched in 2018 and since then has funded projects which are restoring landscapes to benefit people and nature across Europe.

Working closely with the ELP Programme Lead – Capacity and Communications, the wider ELP Team, ELP grantees and various other internal and external stakeholders, the Programme Assistant will play a key role in helping to raise the profile of the programme to key audiences. They will also support activities which facilitate knowledge exchange and relationship-building between projects funded by the programme.

They are looking for someone with an eye for engaging stories, excellent organisational skills and a passion for landscape restoration. The ideal candidate will have experience of writing and editing copy, drafting documents for a variety of audiences, and have the ability to foster relationships with a range of stakeholders. Familiarity with social media strategies, online conferencing software and website editing would be an advantage.

This is an exciting time to join the programme, with the recent launch of a new ELP 2022-2030 strategy and the need for large-scale restoration of landscapes becoming ever more evident.

The deadline for applying for this role is 23.59 BST, Monday 27 June 2022.
