An opportunity to join a dynamic, committed team seeking to improve the environmental performance of Leicestershire County Council and the wider county and to meet the challenges and opportunities of the climate and nature emergencies, in a rapidly evolving policy landscape.

This is subject to review in light of the wider public health situation and developing council policy.
