Closing date: Midday, Monday 17 February 2020

CPRE, the countryside charity, is looking for someone with a passion for the countryside and a strong commitment to its roles in addressing the climate emergency, providing a home for nature and supporting our physical and mental well-being.
As part of an established and valued team, you will take a leading role on CPRE’s highly respected brownfield research and campaigns, working with community groups as much as high-level policy experts to develop innovative policy solutions for a more strategic approach to land use. 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.
You will have experience of research 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 whole organisation. An understanding of development issues or town and country planning (or a related discipline) would be an advantage but not essential.
We’re CPRE, the countryside charity, and we campaign to promote, enhance and protect the countryside for everyone’s benefit, wherever they live; today and for generations to come.
To apply, candidates should read the candidate information pack and job and person specification, then complete the application form (CVs will not be accepted). Please make sure you address the criteria outlined in the job and person specification; failing to do so will mean you will be unlikely to be shortlisted. Please send your completed application to firstname.lastname@example.org by the closing date.
CPRE is an equal opportunities employer.
