The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (UK Branch) is looking for a new Programme Lead for our Environment work to lead the development and delivery of the UK Branch’s Environment funding programme.
The Programme Lead, Environment will work with the Director and colleagues to lead the development and delivery of the UK Branch’s Environment funding programme. Currently, this encompasses two thematic areas, ‘Valuing the Ocean’ and ‘Citizen Engagement on Climate’. With synergies across all our programmes, however, you will also work closely with the Programme Lead, Arts, and the Head of Advocacy and Communications.
This is an exciting time to join our growing team. We are pivoting our strategy to focus on the challenges posed by climate change to the land, sea, and people – and the critical role of public engagement in addressing these challenges – while continuing to champion community engagement in the arts sector by advocating organisations to embrace their ‘civic role’. 2022 will see major global moments for public engagement in these spaces, including the UN Ocean Conference in Lisbon, and COP27, and the beginning of a process to develop the UK Branch’s next five-year strategy, 2024-28.
In this role you will play a pivotal role in these activities, while helping to shape our future environment plans. You will report to the UK Branch Director and work with a diverse, friendly team in London, and with colleagues in our Head Office in Portugal. This is a brilliant opportunity for someone with 7+ years of relevant experience looking for opportunities to manage an exciting programme of work and shape its direction, working with leading NGOs, think tanks and other partners, and contributing to the sustainable development portfolio of a major European Foundation.
