Head of the Greener UK unit
Full time permanent contract
c.£40,000


Are you ready to take on one of the most unique and important roles in the UK environment sector?

Green Alliance is home to the unit steering the Greener UK coalition of 14 leading UK environmental NGOs and over 50 supporting organisations and networks. Greener UK works to ensure that the UK’s environment is not only protected but enhanced through leaving the EU.  

In the next phase of the Brexit process, the head of the Greener UK unit will play a pivotal role in helping to secure the best possible outcome for the environment. To achieve this, we need a bright, ambitious, talented organiser to work at the heart of the environmental movement during this momentous period in UK politics.

You will be the lynchpin of the coalition, advising on political strategy, achieving consensus between partners and steering activity, with the support of a highly skilled and dedicated team.

We are looking for someone who can demonstrate a unique combination of deep political insight, knowledge of environmental policy and politics, strategic capability, a laser eye for detail, as well as excellent communication skills and a knack for negotiating and diplomacy. You must love and excel at the finer details of organising for success.

For the right person, right now this is one of the most important roles in the UK environment sector.

Green Alliance is an independent think tank and advocate, with a 40 year track record. We are committed to building a green and prosperous UK and believe that ambitious political leadership is the route to achieving change at the speed and scale necessary to address current environmental challenges.
