We have an excellent opportunity for a mid-level to experienced lawyer to join our team working on Clean Air in Brussels. The focus of the role will be to use EU air pollution law in order to protect human health, the environment and the climate across the EU. This will involve both implementation and enforcement of existing EU air pollution legislation, together with work on the development of new EU air pollution policies, which are currently being negotiated in Brussels. The immediate work will largely build on ClientEarth’s existing air pollution work, but the role offers plenty of opportunity for working with the team to identify innovative new ideas that can be implemented in future.

Role requirements

The successful candidate will have a demonstrated track record in law and will be ready to contribute to strategic legal thinking, advocacy, and creative problem solving in a public interest law setting. You will also have experience with litigation and strong knowledge of EU environmental law. More generally, you will be a strategic thinker, able to apply legal skills creatively, and an excellent communicator, with excellent written and verbal skills in English and another European language. You are also committed to environmental issues and to social justice.


Salary bracket for this role starts at €3,500 gross per month depending on experience.
