Do you like forests? And having a stable climate? And being able to breathe? So do we. That's why Greenpeace is looking for people with fresh ideas on how we can engage millions of people in protecting our global forests and the people that live within them. We need a strategic leader to drive Greenpeace US's engagement and communications, working with our global organization to protect forests all over the world.
You would lead a broad range of work to engage supporters including: development of strategy, messaging/storytelling, audience research, as well as concept, narrative and creative development and delivery. You will use tactics across all of our channels to ensure that Greenpeace supporters are at the center our campaigns, build power for Greenpeace, and advance our goals to ensure forest conservation.
In 2018 the big project for Greenpeace is protecting the Canadian Boreal forest from corporate exploitation, which has resulted in a corporate attack on Greenpeace, and required us to also fight for the protection of free speech. So this role requires someone who both cares about forest projection and is able to fight for the free speech rights we need to protect it. Meanwhile, Greenpeace continues to fight for the protection of the major rainforests in Indonesia, Brazil and Africa.
The Engagement Specialist works in collaboration with a cross-departmental project team as well as with colleagues in other national/regional offices working on forests. This is an exciting opportunity to work with an amazing team of diverse professionals in Greenpeace US and other Greenpeace offices around the world to support one of our highest priority projects.
