Greenpeace is an independent campaigning organisation, which uses non-violent, creative confrontation to expose global environmental problems, and develop solutions for a green and peaceful future. Our priority focus in the Australia Pacific region is tackling climate change.
The Campaign team is responsible for fighting against the planet’s enemies. Our primary goal is to bring down the might of the fossil fuel order, who are standing in the way of a sustainable future. Whether it’s stopping a huge new dangerous gas project, taking the fight of the Pacific to the world’s biggest stages, or pushing huge corporations to ditch coal and fast-track to renewable energy, you’ll be working on campaigns we believe will make the world safer and more just.
As a Campaigner, you will play a key role across our campaigns in Australia and the Pacific Nations in our fight for climate justice. In this role you will explore and find ways to use your campaigning and digital skills to leverage the huge power of our crew, while devising and delivering outstanding engagement as part of our campaigns. This role will also provide creativity and leadership within campaigns, ensuring they are dynamic, ambitious and highly engaging. For more information about the role, please read our Job Description.
This is an on-going, full-time position.
