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.

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.
