CPRE Avon and Bristol is a longstanding local charity with a history of campaign wins that make a real difference to the countryside and its communities. Thanks to the work of our talented and committed volunteers, we punch well above our weight.


The Trustees are keen to see the charity adapt and increase its impact. We are poised to lead more positive and proactive projects that connect communities to their local countryside, enhance habitats and further strengthen our campaigning to create a thriving, sustainable countryside for all. We are looking for a talented and ambitious leader who is passionate about the Avon and Bristol countryside to lead this exciting stage of our development.


With the support of our experienced and newly strengthened Trustee Board and volunteers, you will build new relationships and spearhead emerging projects that will help us reach new audiences and increase our relevance locally. You will use your fundraising experience to diversify our income and untap unrealised potential as the first paid member of staff to prioritise fundraising. You will build our profile and reputation by representing us externally with all stakeholders and manage the day to day running of the charity.


While planning policy and campaigning is our core, we do not expect you to be an expert as we have a vast wealth of knowledge through our volunteers. Providing you have a willingness to learn, they will support you so you can focus on driving the newer aspects of our work and using those to raise funding.


This role is primarily homebased with frequent travel in the West of England therefore we do want to find someone who lives locally. We offer true flexible working and support our staff to excel in their role alongside other commitments.
