The Countryside Alliance is a political campaigning force that promotes and protects the rural way of life. The Alliance represents the interests of its members and supporters in parliament, in the media and on the ground.


Thank you for your interest in joining the Board of the Countryside Alliance, the membership body and campaigning force that promotes and protects the rural way of life. Set up 25 years ago, we campaign for rural communities on issues that matter to those who live and work in the countryside, while publicising the contribution the countryside as a whole makes to the national economy and quality of life.

This is a pivotal point in the growth of the Countryside Alliance and an exciting time to join us. As part of an ambitious strategy to fulfil the original aim and potential of the Alliance as the voice of the countryside, with broad support, the organisation plans to undergo a fundamental restructuring. 

We are now seeking an Executive Deputy Chairman who will oversee the administrative, marketing and commercial functions of the Alliance. They will help shape and develop a new strategy to generate income from our campaigns, grow and energise our membership and engage credibly in wider rural issues.

With expertise in compelling digital marketing methods and other campaigning tools, they will be experienced in change and transformation. Above all, they will utilise our campaigning reputation to deliver a commercially sustainable strategy with a high-growth and innovative plan to build our membership, resources and impact.

This is a significant leadership role at a critical time. We are looking for an energetic, highly skilled individual with the ability and experience to devise and oversee a strategy for growth. An exceptional leader with a collaborative and engaging approach, you will be able to bring colleagues with you, and have the antenna and maturity of political judgement to help us succeed.

If you believe you have these skills and qualities, have a commitment to the mission of the Countryside Alliance, and would like to be part of a team with ambitious plans to build our campaign, we would be very pleased to hear from you.
