This is a unique opportunity to use your economic expertise to help shape policies for nature at a time of great change and opportunity. Based in the RSPB's Global Conservation Directorate you will help find creative solutions to conservation challenges and you will collaborate with leading thinkers to develop the
environmental policies and management tools of the future, whilst ensuring that the RSPB's work is underpinned by sound economics.

Working with fellow economists, scientists, influencers and policy makers in the UK and the devolved administrations, and with the Birdlife partnership, you will help the RSPB maximise the opportunities and minimise the risks to nature associated with Brexit, and help shape the UK's role in global environmental policy.
