Hours: Full time, but with full flexible and remote working.
Location: Anywhere in the UK (outside of UK also considered)
We are hiring a dynamic, passionate and ambitious lawyer to join The Lifescape Project, to play an integral part in our environmental law projects.
Who we are:
Lifescape Project is a start-up charity which designs and undertakes projects that support wildlife, rewild landscapes, and help to provide a future for all life on earth. We focus on ambitious projects that look at new ways of solving complex problems and bring together the skills and expertise of the public and private sectors.
Our legal work:
Lifescape’s legal work focuses on applying the law to solve problems facing the protection of biodiversity, the environment and the rewilding of landscapes. At present, this covers three specific projects: (1) International Litigation Against Forest Biomass Energy, (2) Threatened Species Protection, and (3) Legal Mechanisms to Protect Nature.
The successful candidate will be in an exciting and dynamic position as the second employee of Lifescape, with the opportunity to help shape the future direction of the Lifescape Project as a charity. You will be responsible for running litigation and legal projects, reporting directly to the CEO, and for expanding the legal arm of the charity.
The candidate will therefore play a fundamental role in Lifescape’s development. Candidates will need to be comfortable with taking on significant responsibility, guiding the direction of a new and expanding NGO, and managing teams of professionally qualified volunteers.
