We are looking for an exceptional individual to take our organisation forward

Are you passionate about the countryside and achieving positive social and environmental change? You could be the next Director of CPRE Kent! This is an exciting opportunity to make a real difference to the future of the countryside in the Garden of England.

CPRE, the Countryside Charity, was founded almost 100 years ago with the aims of the ‘conservation of what is beautiful and interesting in our countryside and towns and villages; and the encouragement of the right type of development’. Today these words are just as relevant as when they were written in the 1920s and we campaign for good planning, protection from inappropriate development and the enhancement of nature and a thriving, healthy countryside.

CPRE Kent is an independent charity, federated with more than 40 CPRE county branches and the national CPRE organisation, giving us local, regional and national reach. The Director will work with our trustees, staff and network of volunteers to formulate local strategy, run local campaigns and liaise with national CPRE.

We are looking for an exceptional individual who can work with and motivate volunteers, take a strategic view on issues affecting Kent’s countryside and represent CPRE Kent at County and National forums and via social, local and national media. The role also involves management of the staff team.

We are looking to fill a full-time post at a salary of circa £55k per annum. However, we would be prepared to consider appointing a 4-day-per-week post at a pro rata salary.

We’re committed to creating an inclusive and diverse workplace at CPRE as we believe that diverse workplaces can make better and more creative decisions. Whatever your background, we welcome your application.
