Allyship Coordinator

Job description

Allyship Coordinator

£39,696 - £46,140 per annum
(We normally offer a starting salary at the beginning of the range)

Full-time (37.5h) / Fixed-term contract for up to 12 months

Islington, London

This is an exciting opportunity as Allyship Coordinator to put all your experience of building collaborative relationships across groups behind the development and delivery of an allyship strategy that has the potential to shape every aspect of what we do.


At Greenpeace UK we strive to build relationships and work together across movements for a just and sustainable world. Our fight for environmental justice is intrinsically linked to the fight for social and economic justice. Building strong and genuine relationships and exploring opportunities to strengthen solidarity will be core parts of the role of the new allyship coordinator.


Greenpeace is an international non-profit global campaigning organisation. Our independence and global reach enable 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.


Our Organisational Development Strategy has identified allyship as one of three key foundations of our work. A new organisation-wide anti-racism commitment also aims to make us better allies to groups campaigning on the nexus of climate, environment and racism. This role has been created to build on this groundwork and move us forward.


Although based within Logistics, you will work with campaign teams and others across the organisation to map out existing relationships, coordinate the creation of new criteria, handle requests relating to new projects and develop a fuller proposition for what Greenpeace can offer groups beyond logistics and direct action support. This will involve working collaboratively with the Allyship working group to understand subtle differences and dynamics, as well as supporting and reflecting any shared objectives.

Requirements

You'll need:

  • Experience of community building, with a collaborative attitude and an understanding of how to build relationships, trust and reciprocity across groups.
  • An understanding of solidarity, differing perspectives, issues around power and privilege, unconscious bias, cultural differences, etc.
  • A proven ability to develop and deliver a comparable longer-term strategy, with strong facilitation and coordination skills.
  • The credibility and down-to-earth communication style to be equally comfortable championing the allyship strategy internally or operating at grassroots campaigning levels.
  • A strong personal commitment to equality and diversity, plus a real interest in our mission and the principles of non-violent direct action.


We give you: The opportunity to continue to develop both personally and professionally, taking advantage of the wide range of learning and development opportunities available to our staff. We offer great benefits such as a generous pension scheme, subsidised lunches, free yoga and a wealth of well-being resources, just to name a few. Take a look at our Work for Greenpeace pages to find out more about what it’s like to work for us and why you should apply.

We are particularly keen to receive applications from people of colour; people with disabilities; people who identify as being LGTBQIA; people who have a mental health condition; and people who identify as working class now or in the past.
