HR Administrator
First of all, I support what Greenpeace is fighting for! Being a part of it and being able to contribute in the organization that I believe in is so satisfying. I also adore the diversities of background, experiences and skills that my colleagues have in GPI. In addition, the scope is very international and I like the atmosphere as well as related to the tasks that I am doing. I can learn a lot and connect with people from around the world.
