Website Green Alliance

Green Alliance is an independent think tank and charity focused on ambitious leadership for the environment.

We are looking for a new head of climate policy to lead our Low Carbon Future theme which focuses on the main decarbonisation challenges facing the UK. To succeed in this role, you will need to be a strong communicator who can get to grips with complex climate change policy debates and produce incisive, punchy information for UK policy makers.

The role involves both management of people and projects, and delivery of outcomes. It includes writing and pitching fundraising proposals, devising and delivering projects and ensuring outputs and events are effectively planned and executed to deadline. The ultimate goal will be persuading policymakers to adopt your proposals.

You will have excellent research capability and be able to lead our thinking on substantive decarbonisation challenges. As well as enjoying the detail, you will need a strong understanding of the bigger picture around the UK’s approach to net zero and decarbonisation in a range of sectors, with a particular focus on heating and transport, and be familiar with the policy and political landscape on this agenda.

Ideally, you will already have a strong network in the climate sector, but it is essential that you have the ability to build relationships with politicians, environmental NGOs and other stakeholders, to secure support for projects and policy proposals.

Reporting to the research director, you will work alongside other staff in an in-house policy team comprising the executive director, research and policy directors, heads of policy, senior advisers, advisers, analysts and assistants. You will line manage three policy advisers, and you will work with the communications team on the production of outputs, events and media.

Green Alliance is a charity, independent think tank and advocate, committed to achieving a greener future. We believe that ambitious political leadership is the route to change at the speed and scale necessary.

We play a central role in shaping the natural environment, low carbon and resource policy agendas in the UK and are known for our cross party influence and the clarity of our insights.

We aim to create a supportive and collaborative culture that allows people to reach their full potential, and to provide an inclusive working environment where diversity is valued and everyone is able to thrive.

At Green Alliance we believe that a diverse team leads to higher quality policy development and advocacy for the environment. We value the breadth of lived experience of our staff and support people to thrive.  We encourage applications from all sections of society, particularly those from working-class backgrounds and people of colour who are under-represented in the environment and think tank sectors, to help us achieve our vision of a green and prosperous UK for all.
