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 great opportunity to develop your ability to bring together communities, volunteers, strategic partners and marketing campaigns – by inspiring thousands of young people around the UK to take action to combat climate change.


Working closely with the Outreach Campaigner, you’ll help to coordinate the pivotal Greenpeace Speaker programme, which inspires, enthuses and ‘activates’ new audiences on a nationwide scale and supports a network of around 100 passionate volunteers.


In particular, you’ll be developing marketing and promotion of the programme and will be expected to cultivate relationships with strategic partners, including universities, colleges and youth groups, to create demand for talks from speakers. You’ll also be responsible for delivering engaging communications to the volunteer network, using a variety of channels.
