Job Details

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join a world-leading organisation who focus exclusively on public engagement with climate change.

The organisation exists because climate change doesn't communicate itself, even with the increasing number of climate impacts. They help people understand this complex issue in ways that resonate with their sense of identity, values and worldview. Informed consent and support from people across society and around the world creates what they call a social mandate for climate action - and they believe it's how real change happens.

The charity focuses on work that has impact - climate change is too important and urgent an issue to do anything else. They are proud of the difference they have already made and continue to make in engaging the public with climate change to create a social mandate for climate action.

They are looking for a Director of Programmes and Research to join the team on a permanent basis.
