Assistant Campaigner

Come join the team defending the environment through the Australia Pacific region.

Now – more than ever – the global climate needs the best defenders it can find. Greenpeace Australia Pacific has strong plans for the fight-back that centers on the battle to replace coal with renewables, telling powerful and transformative stories.


We’re looking for a budding change-maker; someone who can hit the ground running and play a pivotal role in the coordination and implementation of our climate campaigning. You will be called upon to ensure the smooth running of projects, respond to external developments/opportunities, provide strategic creativity and, ultimately, help our Program team ignite masses of people to act together to win a healthy planet.

Other key responsibilities include:

  • Developing and implementing campaign strategies and tactics
  • Maintaining networks and relationships with relevant stakeholders, partners and allies
  • The preparation of reports and research briefs; and
  • Generating engaging and purposeful content for use across digital channels.  


We are looking for a passionate, dynamic individual with:

  • Experience in campaigning, community organising, or political lobbying
  • An understanding of campaign strategy and both online/offline tactics
  • Strong project management skills with the ability to maintain tight deadlines; and
  • Excellent communication and organisation skills.


Australia and the Pacific are unique and precious environments. We’ve got a beautiful climate, rich oceans, vast forests and healthy food. Yet all of this is under threat. Greenpeace takes action to protect our natural home, now and for the future. We investigate and expose environmental abuse, hold decision-makers accountable, promote effective solutions and inspire others to create positive change.


As a Greenpeace employee, you’ll be part of an important program of work to stop climate change, save the ancient forests and protect our world’s oceans, earth and sky.

As well as a chance to match your career to a compelling cause, Greenpeace offers employees a supportive, safe working environment and a genuine work/life balance.

Greenpeace is committed to personal development, with great opportunities for

workplace learning and career progression.

We also offer:

  • You get to work in a team of skilled, dedicated digital troublemakers determined to disrupt the status quo
  • You get to use your skills for good; engaging and motivating everyday folk to take action for the planet
  • You will have the independence and scope to experiment, innovate and advance the aims of the team
  • Greenpeace can guarantee a flexible work environment, friendly and helpful co-workers.


Greenpeace is an equal opportunity employer with a longstanding commitment of providing a work environment that respects the dignity and worth of each individual. We recognize and value the benefits and strengths that diversity brings to our employees and the whole organisation and we thrive in an environment that encourages respect and trust.
