Paid • Full Time • Fixed Term Contract

Sectors: environmental policy & campaigning

Closing date: Thursday, 30th January 2020   2 days left

Following receipt of funding from the Postcode Lottery, we are seeking an experienced Project Manager to advance and expand our Greenpeace Speaker programme.

This role will lead the delivery of a year-long funded project to successfully engage over 30,000 ‘Planet Protectors’, taking action to combat climate change and environmental degradation, through the expansion of our volunteer programme.

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.

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.

To secure this role:

  • You will have experience of successful project management delivery experience, including budget management.
  • You will have experience of successfully leading and motivating a small team.
  • You will have experience of working with various stakeholders, building and developing effective working relationships, ideally with experience of working with volunteers.
  • You will have strong organisational and time-management skills, with excellent interpersonal and communication skills.
  • You will have the ability to take leadership of new ideas and initiatives, and experience of reaching and empowering parts of the community who have historically been less engaged in the environmental movement.
