You'll have great interpersonal skills and strong experience of building relationships with a wide range of stakeholders as well as a passion for connecting people with our cause. And experience working with brands on unusual partnerships, your finger on the cultural pulse and a flair for experiential PR. 

This is a fantastic opportunity for an individual who wants to make a difference in tackling the nature and climate emergency.

  • Creative thinker with a desire to try different approaches
  • Excellent communications - written and verbal
  • Able to communicate complex topics in a clear manner to a range of audiences
  • Working understanding of equality, diversity and inclusion, and its application within communications delivery
