We have opportunities for two persuasive, personable and highly motivated Campaigners to join Greenpeace, the world's most iconic and determined campaigning organisation.

Greenpeace is an international non-profit campaigning organisation. We investigate and expose global environmental problems, confront those in positions of power and present alternative solutions.

Our Campaigners are at the frontline of Greenpeace’s essential work. These invaluable individuals develop strategies, plans and tactics, and undertake and implement project work. Campaign techniques span investigation and research, public, political and corporate work, the use of traditional and new media, science, the law and non-violent direct action.

  • Supervise external consultants, volunteers and / or staff.

         
The successful candidate will have practical experience of campaigning, including strategic analysis, and an aptitude for collaborative working and resolving conflict. They will be enthusiastic about the aims and activities of Greenpeace and will possess the imagination, initiative, drive and strategic nous needed to create successful campaigns.
 
In addition, all applicants should have:
 

  • An understanding of how campaigning can achieve change, the importance of direct action and the ability to devise innovative, high quality campaigns communications.
  • The ability to view environmental issues in terms of campaign opportunities and strategic objectives.

  • A flair for forging / maintaining effective contacts and relationships, and for giving presentations.
  • Great organisation, prioritisation and planning skills.

 
Greenpeace stands for positive change through action and everyone who works for us is passionate about what we're trying to achieve. Join us and you'll be part of an action-led, ambitious organisation which also prides itself on being an inspiring place to work.
