Along with other more sustainable forms of transport, Electric Vehicles (EVs) can help reduce air pollution and climate change emissions.

Various countries around the world and some of the major car manufacturers are increasingly taking the decision to move away from petrol and diesel cars.

There are currently around 100,000 plug in vehicles on the roads in the UK and recent years have seen a large increase in numbers but we still lag behind many other countries in terms of charging infrastructure.

Friends of the Earth Cymru are working with key partners in Wales to increase and improve the EV charging infrastructure in Wales. We are seeking to recruit a volunteer to help run this campaign.

We offer the opportunity to be based in our Cardiff office working with a dedicated staff member, work from home or a mix of both.

What will I be doing?

  • Working with Friends of the Earth Cymru staff, volunteers and local groups around Wales to take the campaign forward 
  • Conducting thorough research to help inform the campaign 
  • Networking with other organisations, individuals and campaign partners
  • Helping publicise the campaign through a variety of channels including the media and via social media
  • Helping lobby local and national politicians

Do I need any experience?

Knowledge of, and interest in, EVs would be desirable but not essential. More important is a keen willingness to get involved and with a few hours a week to spare.

This is a good opportunity to learn more about the issues, get involved in an exciting campaign, meet like-minded people and gain experience of networking, publicity, event organisation, lobbying and campaigning.
