Join Britain’s biggest walking charity to help everyone, everywhere, enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk. The Ramblers is the only charity dedicated to looking after paths and green spaces, leading walks, opening up new places to explore and encouraging everyone to get outside and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness.
We are recruiting a campaigns and engagement officer to develop and deliver effective campaigns which support the Ramblers’ work to help everyone, everywhere, enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk. This role will involve working across all Ramblers campaign areas, but the focus will be on delivering our Walking Neighbourhoods campaign.
In this role you will engage with Ramblers supporters and the wider public on campaigns, to grow our network of campaigners and support the delivery of a cross-organisation collaborative engagement strategy. As a volunteer led organisation, you will support volunteers so that the Ramblers’ campaigning priorities can be delivered positively and effectively at national, regional and local levels.  
This is an exciting time to join the Ramblers team and a great opportunity to make a lasting and tangible impact on the future success of the charity.

Solid demonstrable experience of campaigning to influence change. 
Experience bringing policy and advocacy campaigns to life and driving engagement.
A strong communicator with the ability to transform complex issues and policy approaches into simple messages and ‘campaigning asks’ to volunteers and the public
Experience of campaigning through digital channels.
