The public interest law model of environmental NGO was unknown and untested in Europe when we started up in 2007. It was clearly badly needed, so that we have managed to have a huge impact, punching well above our weight, in a relatively short space of time. My role is all about keeping that effort on track, managing the finances and other resources through periods of rapid growth as we move from strength to strength. As such, it must be one of the most rewarding back office jobs going.

Ed Walker

Director, Finance and Resources

Ed Walker joined our London office in 2007 having graduated with distinction from an MSc at Oxford’s Environmental Change Institute.

From his initial role as administrator and assistant to James Thornton, as well as researcher on a broad suite of scientific subjects, he has progressed to oversee the smooth running of ClientEarth as director of finance and resources.

During his MSc Ed’s primary research interests were in soil erosion, biofuels and food security in the face of climate change. Ed originally trained as a conservation biologist, and gained a first class MA in Biological Sciences from Oxford in 2003. He has spent several years practising conservation and conducting original research in the UK and the developing world, most notably with the Island Conservation Society in Seychelles and the Negros Rainforest Conservation Project in the Philippines.
