The Global Programme Office of Greenpeace International is seeking a Resource Strategist to oversee our programme funds and analyse the resources we use. You will work across the organisation and collaborate with relevant stakeholders to make our resource planning and tracking systems efficient and integrated. As Resource Strategist you will play an important part in transforming our campaigning impact through strategic interventions in how Greenpeace National/Regional Organisations collaborate with people and money to deliver our campaigns. 

To be successful in this role you should have excellent financial accounting and management skills, and be able to advise on the prioritisation of resources for Greenpeace National and Regional Organisations and global programme priorities. Improving transparency, equity and impact are all key objectives for this position.

This full time position is structural and a one-year contract is offered initially. Location is flexible and can be negotiated during the recruitment process, although it must be in a country with an established Greenpeace Organisation and ideally overlapping working hours with Central European Timezone (CET). Because remuneration is dependent on location, this can be discussed during the application process. 


What your duties will entail:

  • Analysing global programme resourcing trends and making strategic recommendations to further improve programme resourcing while collaborating to tackle problems and build a more integrated understanding of global resourcing needs.
  • Implementing strategies to improve visibility, accountability and transparency of global programme resource expenditure, including advice to Programme leadership as requested. 
  • Maintaining an overview of human and financial resources available, and managing the allocation, tracking and analysing thereof. 
  • Proactively suggesting and contribute to the development and improvement of cross-programme systems and working with stakeholders to implement these across teams. 
  • Designing and leading the annual global programme budget process for all three programme departments, coordinating the preparation of annual budgets within each department and ensuring the creation of transparent tracking systems. 
  • Creating best-practice systems to ensure transparent and efficient information flow between programme teams and key stakeholders including and especially Greenpeace International Finance, to enable planning, monitoring and reporting of enabling and operational budgets, while ensuring iterative improvement of approaches to resource planning and system implementation.
  • Representing the global programme internally to ensure that information is shared, systems are efficient, and both interconnected and parallel resourcing streams are coherent.
  • Handling stakeholder relationships, ensuring a can-do and integrated approach across the global programme by working closely with colleagues to connect and coordinate units and staff 

(A full job description is available upon request)

What we are looking for:

  • Relevant degree or demonstrable equivalent level of skill in critical thought. 
  • At least five years work experience in a similar strategic planning role, with experience in an international organisation preferred.
  • Demonstrable experience of managing complex budgets including track record of innovations for efficiency and transparency. 
  • Experience in planning and monitoring complex financial, campaign and/or advocacy projects with successful outcomes. 
  • Ability to build relationships and collaborate as well as possessing excellent negotiation skills, and a track record of positive collaboration with diverse stakeholders. 
  • Experience of working sensitively across borders and with multicultural teams, with experience in ‘virtual’ teams spread across time-zones preferred. 
  • High level of self-motivation and the ability to work efficiently to very tight deadlines.
  • Fluent written and spoken English, with an additional UN language viewed favourably.
