Great British Oceans Coordinator

Job description

Part-Time / Fixed term contract for up to 6 months

Islington, London

£18,626 to £21,679 per annum pro rata

The Marine Reserves Coalition (MRC) has six members; UK-based organisations all with a common interest in the marine environment. Since 2011, Greenpeace, Zoological Society of London, RSPB, Blue Marine Foundation, Marine Conservation Society and Pew Charitable Trusts have been working collaboratively to protect our ocean and the marine biodiversity it is home to.


The coalition is now looking for an exceptional individual to coordinate its ‘Great British Oceans’ campaign. Great British Oceans was launched by the Marine Reserves Coalition in February 2015 to secure marine protection throughout the rich and diverse waters of the UK Overseas Territories, primarily through the designation of marine protected areas. In two years, the campaign has achieved a huge amount, with the designation of the 836,000 square kilometre no-take marine reserve around the Pitcairn Islands, and further ocean protection commitments in other UK Overseas Territories, including the islands of St Helena, Ascension and Tristan Cunha. 


Based at Greenpeace, the Coordinator will work closely with all members of the coalition to help drive forward this active and important campaign. The successful applicant will have experience of working within coalitions, and of organising and delivering multi-faceted communication and engagement activities. They will be enthusiastic and knowledgeable about ocean conservation and will have the ability to work at a fast pace with multiple collaborators.
