Greenpeace International is seeking an experienced, dedicated and passionate Global Campaign Leader to lead the development and delivery of global campaign strategies and support our national and regional offices in implementing innovative and impactful campaigns. This is a full-time position and candidates can be located in any Greenpeace Office, with locations in Asia, South America or Africa preferred.
It’s an exciting time to join our global programme team. Our new strategy, ‘The Framework’, designed with the input of thousands of people across the world, provides a new direction. In many ways it is an evolution of what we do best. We remain true to our mission: to protect the planet in all its diversity and promote peace and non-violence. We value our identity as global and local - taking on formidable opponents and challenges while being rooted in communities. We hold firm to our radical roots and speaking truth to power.
But it is also a firm recognition that the struggle for a green and peaceful future requires fundamental changes in the way we relate to nature and each other. From climate change to inequity, armed conflict to social justice, the great challenges of our time are not only urgent but they are inextricably linked. From the power structures that make them possible to the mindsets that make them acceptable, they are interwoven and must be changed together.
We are positive about the future because people, working together, can achieve anything. This simplicity and optimism is one of our greatest strengths. We will put people power at the heart of our work - strengthening, amplifying and working with those who share our vision, hope and belief that a better world is possible.
