Nature Recovery Campaigner - England

Reference number: A5220220

Location: Flexible

There is nothing more powerful than helping other people realise they can change their world. As a campaigner, it's your job to help people realise they can make a difference and give them the tools to do so.

Our natural world is in crisis: the climate is breaking down, our vital ecosystems are fragmented and damaged, our wildlife, plants, soil, air, seas and rivers are suffering, and so are we. We have very little time until we reach our planet's limits, so every person working to turn the ship around is playing an active role in saving the future of our planet and the next generation.

This year is make-or-break for England's nature laws. With new Environment and Agriculture Bills that set a new framework for nature currently in Westminster, the ongoing need to defend existing environmental laws from being weakened, and Mayoral elections in May, we need people across England to demand more ambition for nature from those in power.
The RSPB's mission is to save nature and wildlife, and to empower more people to play their part. We're developing an ambitious campaign to encourage people from all walks of life to make some noise for nature through a range of creative opportunities. In this role, you'll be making that happen across England as part of a wider England, and UK-wide team.

We are looking for someone passionate about the environment, with experience in campaigning and communications to help us mobilise people for nature. We need someone who:
• is keen to try new and innovative campaign and people engagement tactics
• has a good understanding of politics and the mechanisms to create change
• can work in big teams to deliver a campaign
• is confident talking to people outside the organisation and helping them to campaign too
• is IT literate and can learn how to build online campaign actions and emails

The RSPB is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This post is subject to the appropriate safeguarding checks upon appointment.
