The work will involve developing a compelling and coherent strategy, identifying and leading legal interventions to advance an overall strategy, and representing ClientEarth with high level external stakeholders. While the work has a strong EU focus, connections across programmes and with our national and international work will be essential.. and legislative processes..

The role may be based in ClientEarth’s London or Brussels office.

The successful candidate will be creative, adaptable, resilient, able to take initiative to develop collaborative and strategic relationships with colleagues across ClientEarth programmes, and be confident and credible working with a range of external partners and actors from NGOs to regulators and officials. You will also have demonstrated commitment to environmental issues and working in the public interest.
