Senior Outreach Campaigner

Job description

£49,248 to £55,260 per annum 

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

Full time (37.5h) / Permanent

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 an opportunity to bring together all your experience of managing teams, supporting volunteer networks and delivering campaigns to achieve real change.


Responsible for ensuring the creative delivery of offline tactics, you’ll provide effective management and support for three Outreach Campaigners with local geographical groups – thereby making sure that groups have the necessary training, development and resources to deliver work in line with our Justice, Equality and Diversity objectives.


Working with the Deputy Director Outreach, you’ll assign staff to deliver offline work in line with organisational priorities. You’ll also be expected to act as an ambassador for Outreach across the organisation, to identify and pursue opportunities outside of core project work, and to develop and deliver interventions that add value to the volunteer network.

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 will need to commute into our Islington head office on a regular basis.

Requirements

You'll have:

  • Experience delivering campaigns or projects through a volunteer network or community group, with an understanding of campaign strategy and tactics.
  • Experience translating theoretical plans into engaging offline work.
  • Experience leading, coordinating and supporting multiple volunteer groups or networks, including making contacts, building relationships and developing volunteers.
  • Experience managing a team, professionally or otherwise, including delegating, prioritising and project managing work, as well as resolving conflict.
  • Good communication, negotiation, motivation and persuasion skills.
  • Willingness to work unsociable hours as required, including nights away from home, in pursuit of Greenpeace’s aims.

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.
