Join a small, dynamic campaigns team working on some of the biggest issues of our time, including the climate emergency and health and wellbeing.

Are you an enthusiastic and creative campaigner? Are you passionate about achieving positive and lasting social and environmental change? CPRE, the countryside charity, is looking for a positive and dynamic campaigner to join a small, dynamic and impactful campaigns team working on some of the biggest issues of our time. The campaigns team works on a broad range of topics, including tackling the climate emergency and ensuring the health and wellbeing benefits of the countryside and green spaces are available to everyone, especially those who do not currently have access.

The ideal candidate will have some prior experience of public campaigning and be keen to develop and grow in the role. Some of the key areas of responsibility include:

    • Supporting the development and delivery of campaigning activities and programmes of work
    • Producing campaigning materials such as briefings, blogs, video copy and emails that help to increase engagement
    • Assisting in developing new ideas and fresh approaches, including researching policy and following the external context relating to countryside issues
    • Supporting the project management of several campaigns and coordinating the work of colleagues
    • Monitoring and assisting in the evaluation of campaigns
    • Role-modelling CPRE’s values and behaviours.

Building on recent campaign successes such as the moratorium on fracking and the campaign for an ‘all-in’ Deposit Return Scheme for drinks containers, the Campaigns Officer will support the development and delivery of campaigns and programmes of work at this exciting point in CPRE’s journey. There’s never been a better time to join CPRE: with a fresh new look and ambitious strategy that seeks to achieve a countryside that is thriving, accessible to all and makes a significant contribution to tackling the climate emergency, this is a chance for a campaigner to achieve real and lasting change for people and the countryside.
