The Head of Programme is responsible for managing a team of lawyers and other programme staff working to deliver a strategic and high quality programme of work that advances sustainable fisheries, marine species and habitats protection, plastics reduction, and chemicals regulation in the EU and more widely.

This position reports to the Chief Counsel and is based in one of ClientEarth's European offices.
