Deputy Logistics Director - Outreach

Job description

£61,248 to £67,272 per annum

(We normally offer a starting salary at the start of the range)

Full-time (37.5h) / Permanent 

Based in Islington, London


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.


This is a chance to demonstrate your passionate belief in the power of volunteering and to play a significant part in the direction setting and strategic work of Greenpeace UK.


In the new role of Deputy Logistics Director - Outreach, you’ll be managing the Outreach Team that translates our campaign asks and aims into ways to engage the public and gather support for our work on the streets, in schools, in workplaces and with politicians. There are four posts for which you’ll have direct line management responsibility, plus other staff who’ll benefit from your inspirational leadership.


It’s a very collaborative role, working with functions across the Logistics department and supporting the Director with departmental development and initiatives. However, your key focus will be to support and develop the staff who have volunteer management responsibilities, helping to create an open, accessible and vibrant framework to engage volunteers, offline, across multiple geographical and topic specific groups.

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.


Requirements


You'll have:

  • A real enthusiasm for volunteering and an understanding of its potential.

  • Experience of supporting, enabling or managing a team of people.

  • The ability to bring together diverse Volunteer Managers and create a supported community with shared practices and vision.

  • An understanding of civil society in the UK, with a desire to see Greenpeace more fully integrated.

  • Experience of successfully working in stressful, demanding environments, including an understanding of balance and boundaries.

  • The ability to help teams translate campaign asks into engaging offline activities and impactful opportunities.

We are happy to consider flexible working requests as part of the recruitment process.

We give you: 

You’ll be encouraged 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.
