With an exciting new strategy and brand now in place, CPRE, the countryside charity, is looking for a public affairs officer who can support our political engagement across a number of campaigns and policy areas, helping raise our profile, improve our reputation and increase our influence among policy makers.

The countryside is one of the nation’s most valued assets – it’s where many people feel most alive and plays a vital role in improving our mental and physical health, not to mention tackling the climate emergency. CPRE, the countryside charity wants to connect more people with the countryside, to ensure that everyone can benefit. This role is an opportunity to play an important part in achieving that.

As public affairs officer, you will support the development and delivery of the CPRE’s public affairs activities, raising our profile, improving our reputation and increasing our influence among policy makers. You will already have some experience in a public affairs role, ideally in the charity or environment sector. We are looking for someone with a real passion and energy for public affairs, with the ability to work across teams and with colleagues across the CPRE network of local groups. The successful candidate will enjoy a busy and varied approach to their work, being able to balance a number of competing priorities.

You will be part of the External Affairs team, reporting to the Public Affairs Manager who sits within that team, but working closely with campaigns, policy and communications colleagues right across the organisation.

Normal place of work is CPRE’s National Office, 5-11 Lavington Street, SE1 0NZ. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is possible that you will be asked to work from home on a part-time temporary basis. We are keeping the situation under review.
