Friends of the Earth has a proud history of socially just environmental change. We know that our organisational goal will not be delivered by business as usual, inside or outside Friends of the Earth. We want to change the ‘rules of the game’. Practical experiments at community level can be a powerful way to influence decision makers, change public opinion about what’s possible and identify what to campaign for.

The Innovation Programme Manager is a senior post in the Disruptive Innovation team at Friends of the Earth. This team has a remit to experiment with different ways of working and build on Friends of the Earth’s history in creating demonstration pilots and experimental projects.

This work is a key part of our overall strategy and compliments our work on campaigns and with our supporters. Changing the world means trying new ways of doing things, and that goes for us as an organisation and a movement, as well as for the political, economic, cultural and technological systems we influence.

You will have responsibility and accountability for transforming how Friends of the Earth delivers experimental work and innovation both internally and externally. It’s a challenging role but you will have a significant opportunity to develop exciting new areas of work.

We're looking for a creative thinker with experience of developing and managing experimental projects, an in-depth knowledge of innovation processes and techniques and an understanding of how these kinds of projects can lead to change and create impact.

In return, we offer a competitive range of benefits, a good work/life balance and excellent learning and development opportunities.

Diversity and equal opportunities:

Friends of the Earth is an equal opportunities employer and we are especially keen to encourage applications from people currently under-represented in the environment movement including: black and minority ethnic people; disabled people; lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people; and woman in senior positions. Do contact us as we really do want you to see how you can become part of the Friends of the Earth team.
