We are currently seeking an experienced Resource Strategist to join the Greenpeace International team to ensure vital funds are available for ambitious projects around the globe and advise on global campaigning programme resourcing and use across our global network of Greenpeace International and independent Greenpeace National/Regional Organisations.
You should have:
- Experience in managing large/ complex budgets to deliver campaigning impact - ideally in an international organisation
- Ability to identify resourcing trends and gaps (both financial and staff) and translate these into actionable recommendations
- Confidence to analyse relevant risks combined with creativity to mitigate them where required
- Solid grounding in financial accounting and organisational management (including financial forecasting, data analytics and strategic thinking)
- Good interpersonal skills and ability to negotiate conflicts/disagreements and build relationships to achieve clear outcomes
- Be aligned with Greenpeace purpose and values
The Resource Strategist is a key strategic and financial advisor role in the Global Programme Office of Greenpeace International and reports to the Senior Programme Development Manager.
It requires a mix of financial forecasting, data analytics and strategic thinking, as well as the day-to-day ability to use and improve Greenpeace’s internal financial processes and flows to move money to priority projects within the Greenpeace global organisation. The ideal candidate should be able to identify priorities in resource planning, use data analytics to forecast, manage ongoing mutations and fluctuations and effectively utilise models, analyses and financial data to support their recommendations and decisions.
We are looking for someone who has insight, and is able to collaborate and plan resources across many Greenpeace International teams, as well as in collaboration with Greenpeace National and Regional Organisations globally.
The Resource Strategist collaborates closely with Greenpeace International Finance team to make our resource planning and tracking systems efficient and integrated, and therefore will play an increasingly important role in transforming our campaigning impact through analysis of how NROs collaborate with people and money to deliver our campaigns.
This is a full time position for working with our global team who are dispersed across all timezones. A 1-year contract is offered initially with the strong possibility of extension. Location for this role may be at any established Greenpeace Organisation (subject to agreement), with preference for African or South East Asia regions. Because remuneration is dependent on location, this can be discussed during the application process. (A starting salary indication for Amsterdam-based staff for this grade is approximately €52K annually, and elsewhere would be equivalent but relative to the local cost of living and salary scales.)
Required skills and abilities:
- You must have solid financial management and accounting skills, as well as excellent strategic thinking and analysis
- You must be able to clearly identify objectives and be able to analyse and therefore identify spending and resource trends
- You must have a project management approach to continuously evaluate the impact of the project and ensure that the objectives set at the outset are being managed and remain on track. You should monitor if the allocated funds are sufficient and being optimally utilised (strong alignment to campaign objectives should be measured)
- You should identify and, if needed, develop systems for integration of funds between key stakeholders
- Strong communication and relationship-building skills are imperative for this role
