Location: London

Salary: £65,000 - £70,000 per annum

Job Details

Are you a policy professional, passionate about campaigning to protect our shared environment and seeking to make a difference? Our goal is to address the climate crisis by urgently reducing emissions of climate changing pollutants, helping people and nature to adapt to the global warming that does occur. Join the growing European affiliate of international NGO Environmental Defense Fund to help us win solutions through effective advocacy.

As Head of Policy & Campaigns you will be responsible for setting and guiding the strategy on clean air policy goals in the UK, at local and national level. You will identify legislative and policy opportunities to implement clean air legislation. Working in close cooperation with our European Executive Director, Baroness Bryony Worthington, and our US Climate & Health team you will be based in our London office.

You will be adept at identify policy opportunities quickly and using your relationship building skills to develop close ties with diverse partners. You will relish keeping an overview of the rapidly changing landscape in which we operate. Using your policy skills, you will set strategy to help meet EDF Europe’s goals and priorities and build campaign momentum in the clean air policy space.

As an established policy & campaigns professional, you’ll have an in-depth knowledge of the UK local and national government system with a network of policy contacts and an ability to execute multiple projects simultaneously. We’re looking for someone who can confidently identify the largest solvable problems and advocate for solutions to address them, leveraging the data, insights and relationships of our Breathe London project; as well as EDF’s work on national clean air legislation and the Environment Bill.

This is a challenging role for a motivated, ambitious and articulate policy professional with a strong passion for making a difference in the fight against climate change. If that’s you we’d love you to join us.
