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 commitment to diversity:

At Greenpeace UK we are committed to advancing diversity, inclusion, equity and becoming anti-racist. We acknowledge that people from certain backgrounds are under-represented in environmental and campaigning organisations and want to do all we can to correct this. In particular, we want to be more representative of Britain’s diversity at senior levels of GPUK. If you have the skills we need and are a person of colour, disabled, LGBTQIA, non-binary, have a mental health condition, or if you identify as working class now or in the past, we would welcome an application from you.

This is a great opportunity to build on your digital mobilisation and campaign experience, pick up new technical, strategic and leadership skills – and keep us ahead of the curve.

Responsible for ensuring that all the foundations are in place for successful digital campaigning and communications, you’ll co-lead the Digital Mobilisation team and manage cross-organisational projects, with a focus on strengthening our ability to grow, to achieve our anti-racism commitments, to deepen relationships and to win campaigns.

Since you’ll be assigned at least one campaign area and digital channel or product development, this role will see you involved in significant project management, as well as strategic oversight, global campaign leadership, team leadership, a range of technical and administrative responsibilities, and budget management.

We will be sharing 50% of the interview questions with shortlisted candidates in advance for this role.

The role is based in our London office. As we progress to a hybrid working model, you may have flexibility to work from home, but you will need to commute into our Islington head office on a regular basis.
