This will include engaging a diverse range of audiences, including policy makers in London and Cardiff, and the many individuals and organisations working in the National Parks, as well as our supporters, donors and member organisations. The role is ideally suited to someone who wishes to take the next step in their career and use their skills and experience to make an impact in a small but highly focused team.

You will have a track record of developing relationships with journalists, creating eye-catching and impactful campaigns that deliver results and using digital channels to engage and develop supporters and build momentum for change. You will have experience of working in the public policy arena or with public affairs audiences. In this role, you will also have the chance to work with our member bodies at local and national level and build relationships with partner organisations across the environmental, heritage and recreational sectors. The role is office-based but there will be opportunities to visit and build relationships across the National Parks.

Campaign for National Parks is the only national charity that campaigns to protect, improve and promote the thirteen National Parks in England and Wales. Established in 1936, we are a small, energetic charity that campaigns to shape the development and implementation of policy at national and local level. Our campaigns cover agricultural reform and wildlife conservation to transport and planning, as well as strategic reports such as the Landscapes Review. We have a track record of achieving change and have ambitious plans for the future.
