Campaign Officer / Digital Campaigner
Greenpeace is an independent campaigning organisation, which uses peaceful, creative confrontation to expose global environmental problems, and develop solutions for a green and peaceful future.
The Campaign team is responsible for fighting against the planet’s enemies. The primary goal of Greenpeace Australia Pacific (GPAP) is to bring down the might of the fossil fuel order standing in the way of a sustainable future; this team’s job is to run campaigns that fulfil this goal. Whether it’s stopping a huge new dangerous coal mine, taking the fight of the Pacific to the world’s biggest stages, or pushing huge corporations to ditch coal, you’ll be working on campaigns we believe will make the world safer and more just.
The Campaign Officer will drive and execute the strategy of our campaign to take on AGL, Australia’s biggest polluter. In this role you explore and find ways to use your digital skills to leverage the huge power of our crew, while devising and delivering outstanding engagement as part of GPAP’s fossil fuel campaign. This role will also provide creativity and leadership within the campaign, ensuring the campaign is dynamic, ambitious and highly engaging.
This is a 12 month fixed term contract position.
