Possible is committed to providing equal opportunities for all applicants regardless of their background. We value diversity whilst also acknowledging that people from certain backgrounds are underrepresented in our organisation.
We are keen to correct this, so particularly encourage applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic people; people who identify as having a disability; people from the LGBTQIA+ community; and people who identify as working class (or have done in the past). If you're not sure about applying, please do get in touch with us for a chat - we'd love to talk to you! Just drop Leo a line:
US: Hi, we're Possible - we bring people together to create bold, beautiful solutions in response to the climate crisis. Whether that's connecting the world's first solar railway, mining renewable heat from underneath London's parks, leading calls for a televised climate debate or launching a ground-breaking employer scheme to incentivise clean holiday travel - we're always thinking of new ways to cut carbon that involve and benefit the public.
YOU: Are you someone with a passion for tackling climate change in a way that gets everyone involved- Are you a creative thinker with a positive, practical attitude able to turn ideas into reality- Do you get fired up by working with communities to breathe life into innovative climate solutions that improve lives today- Does solving difficult problems float your boat- If so, we should talk.
The world's recent social and political awakening to the climate crisis has been overtaken by the much more immediate crisis of the pandemic, but in the background the climate emergency continues to demand urgent action. In this turbulent and challenging time, Possible's work on inspiring climate solutions that everyone can contribute to is needed more than ever. Transport is a key area where the UK has veered a long way off track, with carbon emissions actually rising in recent years instead of falling. But with travel patterns turned on their heads by lockdown, new futures are now becoming visible where the car is no longer king.
Possible have secured funding for a major new campaign to reduce private car dominance in cities, showing how achieving the big reductions in motor traffic needed to meet climate change targets will also dramatically improve health outcomes and quality of life for people living in cities. The 'new normal' post-covid cannot be one where people shun public transport for private cars, or our climate goals will be impossible to meet.
We need a senior campaign manager to lead the team delivering this landmark programme to kickstart the process of making private cars obsolete in our cities - accelerating the move to a zero carbon Britain built by and for everyone. We need an experienced leader who knows how to support local community changemakers as well as working with city authorities and local political leaders, leveraging bottom-up grassroots activism to drive city-wide transformation. Our ideal candidate will have a proven track record in campaigning and experience of successfully leading a team, including project management oversight and multiple line management responsibilities.
If you have any questions about the job or Possible before you apply, email .
Workplace benefits include:
- 25 days paid holiday (+ bank holidays and three days at Christmas)
- Flexible working
- Paid volunteer leave
- Bike to work scheme
- Paid journey days for low carbon holiday travel
- Childcare vouchers
- Good maternity and paternity leave
- Employer pension contribution
+ How to apply
Please send a CV and covering letter to by 5pm on Friday 12th June.
You should:
- Save the CV and covering letter as two separate attachments.
- Put "Head of Car Free Cities" in your email subject line.
- Keep the covering letter to under two pages, and make sure you speak to each of the must haves, as well as any nice to haves you might have.
- As well as that, we're keen to hear why you want to work for Possible, why you think you're suited to the role, and what you think you'd bring to the team.
- It'd be great if you could let us know where you heard about the vacancy too.
- When it comes to the CV, it should tell us your qualifications and training, previous experience (paid or voluntary), and point us to two references, one of whom should be your current or most recent employer. It should be about 1-2 pages.
If you haven't applied for many jobs like this before, and are wondering about how to start, we have a blogpost with more advice for applicants here.
We would also appreciate it if you could complete an equal opportunities monitoring form. This will be stored separately to your application and is purely to help Possible assess and improve our recruitment processes.
First interviews will be scheduled between 29th June and 3rd July.
