Salary: £30,500 per annum

Closing date:

Wednesday 20th July 2016

The rainforest is a home, a habitat, a shelter, a pharmacy, a supermarket and an ecosystem that supports many lives and livelihoods. For the indigenous people and animals that inhabit it, the rainforest is everything. Yet most forest dependent people are unable to defend the lands on which they live from forest destruction, land theft and resource exploitation. The Rainforest Foundation UK aims to change this.

At the RFUK, we tackle deforestation locally and globally. Locally, we help forest communities to gain land rights, challenge logging companies, manage their forests and protect their environment. Globally, we campaign to influence national and international laws to protect rainforests and their inhabitants.

About the opportunity

Working in a small but dynamic communications team, the Communications Coordinator will generate (including the writing, editing, proofreading and coordinate of) various in-house communications targeted at a wide and diverse range of audiences (in both English and French); and will develop and contribute to RFUK’s presence and outreach through social media channels. The post would suit someone with a strong charity communications background with a proven track record.
