The Campaign Activism team works across England, Wales and Northern Ireland supporting teams and communities to connect and deliver change. It’s an exciting time to join the team with over 170 new community groups forming in the last year along. In the next year we hope the Head of Campaign Activism will help them, along with the 120 existing Friends of the Earth local groups to have more impact than ever before, and to support them to connect with our international network.
We are looking for someone with demonstrable experience in campaigning and activism, managing a team to a high level and a clear track record in developing activism strategies across multiple campaigns and nations.
