If you want to create campaigns which push for big answers or help our work reach policy makers and communities, then take a look at our latest job opportunities…

Britain’s 13 National Parks span from Dartmoor National Park in the south, to the Pembrokeshire Coast in Wales, to Northumberland in the north and comprise some of our most beautiful and inspiring tracts of land and water. Their protected status is meant to ensure that they are havens for wildlife and a place where rare plants can flourish, trees grow and rivers and lakes are clean. National Park status is also meant to protect these areas from inappropriate development such as quarries, mines and roads. So why does inappropriate development continue to take place in these special areas?

Why too can’t people actually get to our national parks in an accessible and environmentally friendly way? And crucially, are the people who would benefit most from access to the Parks even aware of them?

Creating campaigns which push for big answers to big questions like these is the remit of our policy and project team. This small team is currently looking to recruit a Policy and Project Officer to support the delivery of our policy advocacy and projects. To find out more or to apply visit our Jobs page.

Strong campaigns also need a strong voice to help them reach the hearts and minds of policy makers and communities. Strengthening our brand and message through digital communications is the key to demonstrating how thriving National Parks are fundamental to nature recovery, tackling the climate emergency and helping improve the wellbeing of the nation through ensuring better access for everyone. If you have a great track record in telling compelling stories using digital channels please get in touch as we are now looking to recruit a Senior Communications Officer.

We recognise that National Parks and the environment sector are under-represented by people from ethnic minority and low-income backgrounds, LGBTQ+ and disabled people and we want to change that. So, we especially welcome candidates from these backgrounds to apply for both positions and will operate ‘blind recruitment’ and offer a guaranteed interview scheme for under-represented applicants who meet essential criteria. Work/life balance is also really important to us, so we are open to exploring how both of these advertised roles could work for you, including as a full time (35 hours per week) or part time position and either home or office based or both.
