Campaigns Officer (Environmental Charity Campaigning) Location: Homeworking / Hybrid working with occasional attendance at office in Midlands Position covers UK wide but frequent travel across the UK is not expected Salary: Up to £28,000 Full Time: 35 Hours per week Permanent Contract Closing date for applications: 4 October 2022 First Interview: 13 October 2022 Our client campaigns across the UK and beyond for a Wilder Future: their collective vision is for everyone, everywhere, to be closer to nature. With a growing team of campaign leads across their movement and hundreds of thousands of campaigners standing with them, they re making a big difference on behalf of wildlife and wild spaces. Come and be a part of it! Who they are They are a grassroots movement with over 850,000 members, 38,000 volunteers and 2,800 staff. In the face of the interlinked climate and nature crises, they believe nature s recovery is critical to allow the natural world to thrive once more. It s imperative that precious wildlife and wild spaces are properly valued and protected, and that nature across at least 30% of land and seas is given the chance to recover. Working across the 46 independent Wildlife charities which form their federated movement, this role is based in the central Campaigning and Communities team. Their purpose is to empower Wildlife Trusts to build campaigning skills and experience so they can celebrate and defend nature locally, and to resource and unite the movement behind major national campaigns. They re also at an exciting stage of developing a diverse community of activists who are empowered to lead the change themselves. About you You will be campaigning to achieve that wilder future! Your focus will be on delivering simple but effective campaign actions which shape government plans for nature s recovery, celebrate nature s role in our lives, and which fight against issues such as bad development and poor conservation practices. At the same time you will also work closely with individual Wildlife Trusts giving guidance around campaign messaging, tools and tactics. You will also create inspiring campaign e-actions and produce resources with Trusts that resonate locally as well as with the wider public. You ll be familiar with influencing policy and decision-makers either in your career so far or as a volunteer and a strong believer in the power of teamwork. You will be great at managing your time and energy within a fast-paced environment, organised and resourceful and you ll have a good eye for written detail. You will also be a skilled active listener, adept at drawing consensus from a range of views. Our client value courage, respect, integrity, trust and responsibility. Whilst they are passionate in promoting their aims they are not judgemental and they are inclusive. They want their people to be as diverse as nature itself and so they particularly encourage applications from those currently underrepresented within their sector, including people from minority ethnic backgrounds and people with disabilities. They are committed to creating a movement that recognises and truly values individual differences and identities. As a Disability Confident employer, they are committed to offering an interview to anyone with a disability that meets all the essential criteria for the post. Please let them know if you require any adjustments to make their recruitment process more accessible. This role may be subject to a DBS check
