Project Manager: Training and Safe Workplaces


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 Governance and Performance team is a close-knit and functionally diverse department that includes Legal, People and Culture, IT, Finance, Governance and Facilities. The Creative Confrontation Unit leads Greenpeace Australia Pacific (GPAP)’s iconic actions which use creativity and boldness to further campaigns and win on climate. They are a team of experienced activists that support our volunteers and work within campaigns.


GPAP is at an exciting point in our history, as we prepare to operationalise our new Sydney home, Rainbow Warrior House. The new premises will serve as the main office, functional warehouse and space for community events for GPAP to enact its mission to secure an earth capable of nurturing life in all of its magnificent diversity.

The Project Manager: Training and Safe Workplaces will deliver on two crucial functions that will make this project a reality. The first is driving the completion of the Rainbow Warrior House building works, fit out and workplace set up, as well as developing and implementing new operational protocols and safety practices for the space. The second is developing and implementing training programs for volunteers and staff that support GPAP’s Creative Confrontation work, including embedding ongoing quality control measures and working closely with external expert consultants. 

This is a 12 month fixed term contract position. 


We’re looking for someone with solid project management experience, and a strong knowledge of work health and safety legislation, standards and best-practice. You’ll also have a great understanding of developing and implementing both workplace policies and procedures, and how to manage training programs. 

You’ll also have:

  • A keen interest in GPAP’s Creative Confrontation work;
  • Familiarity with the implementation of safety management systems in medium-sized organisations;
  • The ability to manage projects with multiple parties and competing priorities; and
  • The ability to work closely with a range of people, including tradies, suppliers, volunteers and specialist consultants.


  • The chance to use your project management skills for a cause by (literally!) helping Greenpeace Australia Pacific build our new home from the ground up;
  • Frequent learning and development opportunities, and the chance to grow in the role;
  • On opportunity to learn about and work closely with the team leading on GPAP’s iconic Creative Confrontation activities;
  • A great work-life balance including 35 hour work week, integrity framework and generous leave conditions; 
  • Genuine flexible working conditions including some capacity for remote work from home, and
  • A culture that celebrates inclusivity and diversity.

Salary $102,573.63 per annum + Superannuation.
