Size of Wales is a growing, ambitious Cardiff-based charity with global impact. We work to mobilise Wales to protect tropical forests and restore tropical forest landscapes as part of Wales’ national response to climate change. We do this through education and awareness raising activities in Wales (including an education programme in schools and our annual Go Green Day campaign) as well as supporting a number of overseas projects that protect and/or restore tropical forests. The projects are located in Africa, South America and South East Asia.

We are looking for an outstanding individual to take up the new role of Head of Policy and Advocacy at Size of Wales.  Reporting to the Director, the Head of Policy and Advocacy will lead on the development and implementation of an exciting new programme of work at Size of Wales aimed at eliminating imported deforestation from Wales’ economy.  This will include influencing public procurement practices, business supply chains and pension fund investments in Wales, as well as contributing expertise to Size of Wales’ community engagement work.

The post-holder will need to use their strong expertise on the drivers of tropical deforestation and of forest risk commodities combined with their powerful communication skills to shape and deliver this new strategy in Wales, as well as representing Size of Wales internationally to share our experiences with others.

Salary is in the range £28,000 – £32,000 p.a., dependent on experience. The package of benefits includes a 6% pension contribution, 30 days annual leave including bank holidays and a flexible working hours’ policy. The role is based in Cardiff with some remote working. The role is advertised as a full-time role but applications for part-time working will also be considered.
