5th March 2024

CPRE Oxfordshire is looking for a Director to develop campaigns and co-ordinate our volunteer network to protect the countryside of Oxfordshire. Work with us towards a beautiful and thriving countryside that’s accessible to everyone.

CPRE (the Countryside Charity) was set up 100 years ago with the aims of the ‘conservation of what is beautiful and interesting in our countryside and towns and villages; and the encouragement of the right type of development’.  Today these words are just as relevant as when they were written in the 1920s and we campaign for good planning, protection from speculative development and the enhancement of nature and accessibility of our green spaces.

CPRE Oxfordshire is an independent charity, federated with 40+ county charities and a national office, giving us local, regional and national reach.  The Director will work with our Trustees and network of volunteers to formulate local strategy, run local campaigns and liase with the National Charity.  The Director is assisted by a small staff team.

We are looking for an exceptional individual who can work with and motivate volunteers, take a strategic view on issues affecting the Oxfordshire countryside and represent CPRE at County and National forums.  The role also involves management of the small staff team, the oversight of our finances and fundraising.
