Together, we can create a world richer in nature.
As the largest nature conservation charity in the UK, the RSPB has a new ambitious strategy to 2030. We are facing a nature and climate emergency, and tackling it requires a step change in the way we do things, to ensure the RSPB is making its best contribution. Now is the time to focus our conservation work on those areas where we can make the biggest impact, and to invest in enabling people to take action for birds and nature. The next decade will be vital for the future of our planet. We must scale up and collaborate more to deliver our excellent evidence-based conservation work, whilst influencing systemic change in the UK and beyond, as well as inspiring and empowering others through powerful partnerships. Our vision for the future is ambitious and challenging, but achieving it is vital – not only for nature, but for people too.
We are currently seeking to appoint an outstanding and ambitious individual as our Executive Director, Global Conservation. Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer, you will be responsible for bringing vision, inspiration, and leadership to the global conservation team, setting and guiding the conservation philosophy and approach of the RSPB. As well as critically important science and delivery of our conservation programming, you will make a significant contribution to realising RSPB’s ambition through external influencing, advocacy and policy engagement and will play a key role as part of the BirdLife International partnership. You will help lead the organisation as a member of the Executive Board.
This role offers a unique opportunity for an individual with genuine passion to make a positive difference for the natural world. You will demonstrate significant experience in strategic leadership and managing in complex organisations. You will bring significant conservation and policy expertise, as well as an ability to engage and motivate people and key stakeholders. You will have strong communication and interpersonal skills to advocate and represent the organisation to a wide range of audiences. Forward-thinking, inspiring, and collaborative, you will forge funding and delivery partnerships to further RSPB’s mission and impact in the UK, and globally. Perhaps most importantly, you will have values that align with the RSPB.
