The Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM) is the leading UK professional membership body for ecologists and environmental managers working to protect and enhance the natural environment.
CIEEM is increasingly recognised by its members and external stakeholders as the voice of the profession through its effective, evidence-based and knowledgeable input in influencing environmental policy and practice to deliver better outcomes for nature and people. We have an exciting opportunity for a Policy Officer to join the CIEEM team, working with the Head of Policy, other colleagues and volunteers to further deliver CIEEM’s policy ambitions. The successful candidate will help deliver our policy engagement and influencing objectives, assisting to ensure that the expertise and experience of CIEEM members along with relevant evidence is used to create and improve environmental policy and legislation, and to help raise the profile of our profession.
These are exciting and yet challenging times for the ecology and environmental management sector. With a new UK Government and much change in environmental policy across the UK nations and the EU this is a fantastic opportunity for the right candidate to both use and develop their skills and experience in the field of environmental policy engagement to help make positive change for people and nature. There is much to do and we are looking for someone with energy, enthusiasm and insight, and who never wants to stop learning.
As part of our commitment to making CIEEM a great place to work, we offer a comprehensive reward and benefits package which includes: flexible working; 25 days leave plus public holidays; a generous Workplace Qualifying Pension Scheme with CIEEM contributing up to 10% of gross salary (dependent on employee’s contribution) for eligible employees; professional development opportunities; and access to an employee assistance programme. Whilst the role is based at Ampfield, near Romsey in Hampshire, we support staff to work up to 50% of the time from home if that is their preference and can consider other flexible working arrangements.
