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

The Greenspeaker programme focuses on quality conversations that aim to really connect and inspire people to act. The focus is on relating to the audience as individual agents for change in their community - and that’s what sets Greenpeace Speakers aside from typical school or community talk-givers.

This year, Greenpeace will grow this programme to include over 100 volunteers, all trained and supported to deliver engagement all over the country. We will develop resources to support school and universities, youth, business and community groups which inspire action at a community level. The team will work to inspire action and support individuals and groups to develop their skills, knowledge and passion for overcoming environmental issues at a community level, with an onus on reaching out to marginalised communities.

You will drive the project to deliver real-world action. Leading a small team, you will be responsible for staff management, including developing skills and competencies.

To secure this role:

We’re looking for an Environmental Education Officer, someone who is a confident and clear communicator, with experience of working in an educational setting, this could be formal or non-formal. You will have the ability and prior experience to be able to write and prepare high quality presentations and devise innovative educational materials. Experience of environmental education is essential. Experience of community / local campaigning and community-led projects is desired, ideally within the environmental sector.
