CPRE is looking for an enthusiastic campaigner with an eye for policy detail who is as comfortable working with local community groups as with high level policy experts. Working as part of an exciting new team, you will be a powerful advocate for rural communities as CPRE develops an ambitious programme of rural renewal on issues ranging from social housing to cuts to vital services.

As someone with a passion for the countryside and a strong commitment to its long term sustainability, you will thrive in a role where no two days are the same. From lobbying MPs at Westminster to running community workshops in village halls, the successful candidate will have significant scope to shape CPRE’s priorities.

With ample scope for professional development in the role, you will learn how to sharpen your campaigning skills whilst maintaining CPRE’s reputation as an evidence led organisation.

The successful candidate will have experience of campaigns and policy formulation combined with a strong awareness of strategies for influencing decision makers at all levels. A critical thinker who is not afraid to speak up, your analytical skills will be critical to the work of the team as a whole.
