Are you an exceptional leader for exceptional times?
This is an exciting and unique opportunity for an outstanding individual to play a major role in shaping the public policy agenda as it affects the environment in the UK. It is a challenging leadership role at the centre of a dynamic network of partner organisations and individuals seeking a greener Britain; a network that makes progress with the support of Green Alliance’s analysis, convening power and advocacy.
The vote to leave the EU is likely to bring profound threats to the environment but also real opportunities to refresh the public and political mandate for a greener Britain. We are seeking a new executive director to embrace this change and help Green Alliance and its NGO, business and government partners navigate through the uncertainty of the next few years to achieve a new settlement for Britain’s environment.
It is vital that the environment sector responds collaboratively to ensure that UK environmental protection is as strong, or stronger, than within the EU. Green Alliance is uniquely placed to offer the convening, facilitation and networking skills, and the political experience to make this happen. To successfully lead this the executive director will need gravitas, strong people skills and a keen understanding of the external politics.
The successful candidate will inherit an outstanding team with a strong ethos of collaborative working, a large and highly engaged network of partners, and an organisation in a unique position to make a significant impact in the coming years.
