The Ocean Campaign seeks to improve the status of marine ecosystems and wildlife by reducing threats posed by marine plastic pollution, commercial fishing gear and commercial exploitation of whales, dolphins and porpoises.

We are seeking a new Ocean Campaigner to join our team and support our UK and European work in particular. The Ocean Campaigner will predominantly be focused on our plastics campaign and lead on the related corporate and government policy workstreams, for example through campaigning for stronger European and UK laws on plastic consumption and waste, and by securing commitments and driving action from major UK supermarket retailers to reduce their single-use plastic and packaging footprint.

The role requires flexibility in response to the overall campaign needs, but we expect the Ocean Campaigner to take a lead role in responding to government consultations, conducting research and analysis, report writing, engaging decision makers and the media, and developing strategies to further our campaign objectives, including the scoping of new areas and liaising with other NGOs on collaborative projects.

  • Contribute to the campaign’s monitoring and evaluation processes and take responsibility for updating EIA’s campaign tracker and project management tools.

  • Develop and maintain a network of external contacts;

  • Ensure contact lists under the Ocean campaign are kept up to date and are available to the team;
  • Ensure all campaign paperwork and files are organised and accessible;
  • Assist with responding to public enquiries relevant to the oceans campaign;
  • Produce back to office reports (BTOR) according to the agreed template and ensure information from conferences and other events is highlighted to relevant members of staff;
  • Write up notes from meetings and significant telephone calls and circulate to the rest of the team in a timely manner;
  • Collaborate with other ocean team members to share responsibilities for managing team administration, including producing and sharing agendas for team meetings and circulating minutes.

Financial Planning and Budget Management

  • Monitor campaign expenditure and flag overspends to the relevant budget holder;
  • Produce budgets for all project-related activities prior to expenditure and complete reconciliations, accurately reporting expenditure incurred during trips;
  • Produce appropriate paperwork (e.g. purchase orders, expense claims) and keep a detailed log of expenditure.
