ClientEarth is a charity that uses the law to create systemic change that protects the Earth for – and with – its inhabitants. We are tackling climate change, protecting nature and stopping pollution, with partners and citizens around the globe. We hold industry and governments to account and defend everyone’s right to a healthy world. We have saved Europe’s oldest forest from destruction, smoothed the way for environmental lawsuits in China, and taken successful legal action against some of the world’s biggest polluters. This year we have accelerated the closure of Europe’s biggest single emitter of carbon – a coal plant in Poland.
In 2022 we will undergo a major transition in leadership when our Founder and Chief Executive, James Thornton, passes the reins to a new Chief Executive. This marks a hugely exciting moment of opportunity. The incoming Chief Executive will assume full responsibility for the leadership of ClientEarth – its future direction, its sustainability and impact, and its highly talented people around the world. They will create a new leadership structure suited to the next phase of our strategy, one that will give us the institutional strength to deliver enormous impact in this critical decade, and beyond. The Chief Executive’s job is one of the most important in the world for the future of our planet and its people. We are looking for someone to lead with courage and humility – above all a leader who is truly aligned with our values and our cause. We hope you will be inspired to apply.
