Overview of the People’s Plan

The People’s Plan is an environmental Community Interest-Company (CIC) working to give local people a voice on how climate policies are designed and implemented. Our current primary project is an interactive and educational gamified platform which facilitates engagement between local residents and their councils, with a focus on engaging underrepresented groups. 

The team and role

This is a very exciting time for the People’s Plan as we are at the stage of piloting our platform with councils across the UK. As a Climate Partnerships and Engagement volunteer, you will be part of our External Engagement team. This team is pivotal in discovering the issues facing our stakeholders, and ensuring the work of the People’s Plan is focused on addressing these needs. So far, we’ve connected with a large number of councils and other strategic partners across the country.

You will be responsible for: 

  • Proactively identifying and forging partnerships between the People’s Plan and councils across the UK.
  • Building strong working relationships with strategic partners and relevant climate and environment organisations (e.g. companies, research centres, representative bodies, interest groups etc)
  • Lead the design, development, and delivery of our stakeholder engagement plan, including stakeholder mapping.
  • Build and maintain strong working relationships with councils and other stakeholders

Skills required:

  • Managing relationships with stakeholders.
  • Engaging with a range of stakeholders.
  • Communicating, influencing, and presenting.
  • Managing time and prioritising effectively

As a team member, you’ll have the chance to develop your skills with a tailored development plan whilst being able to work on a tangible project and make a positive impact on a national level.

The People’s Plan is supported by the Climate Venture Collective. The CVC is a diverse group of entrepreneurs, thinkers, makers and doers who come together to create scalable solutions to the Climate Crisis. The group is open to everyone to join and we all share in the work and the rewards.

Our ambition is to work together to promote a more inclusive environment, which attracts all candidates, and which celebrates and promotes diversity. We therefore particularly welcome applications from diverse backgrounds.
