We know your environment

We are growing fast and on the look-out for talented communications professionals with environmental expertise.

Our Careers

As the world’s leading environmental communications consultancy, we’re constantly on the look out for new talent to improve our service and support our growth.

We recruit across two categories: full or part-time hires, and freelance consultants. Currently staff are working remotely in all offices apart from Bonn. However we’re actively recruiting for our offices in NYC, Brussels and Bonn. For freelance consultants, we recruit worldwide.

Our hires come from all kinds of backgrounds – from the private, public, IGO and voluntary sectors – and have different skills in campaigns, PR, content, digital, CSR or public affairs. The one thing they have in common is that they have years of experience on key issues relating to climate change, nature conservation, sustainable food production or the energy transition.

Our paid internship program recruits graduates and postgraduates from the top universities. These are currently being taken on in Bonn and NYC. Some interns later join Browning Environmental Communications and stay for many years.

We post current vacancies below. Please send a brief cover letter and CV to jobs@browningenvironmental.com if you are interested in any of these, or for unsolicited proposals.
