Greenpeace Outreach Campaigners
We live in an amazing country where we surf the waves, ski the mountains, tramp the bush and every kid can catch a fish – we don’t know how lucky we are! An environment this amazing is worth protecting and to do so we need amazing communicators to inspire Kiwis to become Greenpeace supporters.
Our Outreach Campaigners are out and about talking to Kiwis all over NZ. We go where the people are, either in shopping areas or door to door, to tell the stories of our campaign work, to show people how they can make a difference and most importantly to sign-up new long term supporters via a monthly direct debit.
It’s certainly not your traditional job but there’s a good chance it’ll be the most rewarding you ever have.
Here's some highlights:
- You’ll meet the most amazing, inspiring people in your team and in the community
- You’ll be a part of shaping NZ and the world for the better
- You’ll have the opportunity to constantly develop and advance
- You’ll work and play with a close knit team of like-minded individuals
- You’ll get the chance to see NZ and maybe the world as part of travel teams
- You’ll get fantastic experience in fundraising and add one of the world's best known NGOs to your CV.
- You’ll receive a decent rate of pay and plenty of non-financial rewards.
Many Outreach Campaigners start at Greenpeace not knowing too much about the organisation but the skills and development they receive on the job are invaluable in wherever their life takes them in the very long term. It’s very common for people to move on to more senior roles in our teams or other roles within Greenpeace.
