Events Support Co-ordinator

Job description

Events Support Co-ordinator

Fixed Term Contract (May – September 2018)

Full-Time Monday – Friday (plus pre-agreed weekends)

£31,044 per annum / Based in London 


Greenpeace is an international non-profit global campaigning organisation. Our independence and global reach enables us to stand for positive change through action in order to defend nature and promote peace. We investigate and expose global environmental problems, confront those in positions of power and present alternative solutions.


Each year we assemble a team of people to develop and run our involvement in a number of outdoor summer festivals. The skills we require are wide ranging and include designers, builders, carpenters, plumbers, electricians, musicians, actors, cooks, film makers and drivers. Add to these a large number of volunteers who act as stewards and run the various built features and you will get some idea of who and what you’ll be supporting to organise and manage.


We are looking for a committed individual to support our Events Team by coordinating our volunteer presence at our Greenpeace site within each summer festival. You are expected to attend festival locations to assist with on-site set-up and will be required to manage volunteers and offer events support when needed.


Our projects start in the Greenpeace office and culminate with events at the festival sites, where you will work as an integral part of the team.


This is an exciting role for somebody with experience of volunteer management and events organisation, coordination and management (ideally outdoor events or festivals).


The successful applicant will be highly organised with excellent administration, written and verbal communication skills.


The festival season is a busy time of the year for the Events Team, so a ‘hands on’ approach to deal with logistics during the events is necessary, including the expectation to attend the majority, if not all, of the festivals that make up the 2018 Festivals Programme.


This is a fixed term post covering the festival season, therefore the successful applicant is expected to join us in May 2018 and learn quickly to make the role a success. Support and guidance will be available.

You will find further requirements listed in the person specification.
