CPRE campaigns for a beautiful and living countryside.

We work to protect, promote and enhance our towns and countryside to make them better places to live, work and enjoy, and to ensure that the countryside is protected for now and future generations.

This is an outstanding opportunity to lead and develop CPRE at an exciting stage in its development and at a critical time for the English countryside.

As Chief Executive you will provide strategic and inspirational leadership to grow CPRE’s reputation and influence externally whilst ensuring internal structures, resources and operations are fit for purpose.

We are looking for an experienced CEO or senior leader who is confident operating in a complex and challenging policy environment, politically astute, and credible at the highest levels of government and with other senior stakeholders. Critically you must also be able to demonstrate strong operational, interpersonal and influencing skills and an ability to work effectively within a federated structure.
