Greenpeace is a global, independent campaigning organization that uses peaceful protest and creative communication to expose global environmental problems and promote solutions that are essential to a green and peaceful future. For over fifty years, Greenpeace has fought to save the planet from the threat of global warming, destruction of ancient forests, deterioration of our oceans, and the threat of a nuclear disaster loom large. As an independent organization, Greenpeace does not accept funds from any corporations or government entities, safeguarding our independence and ability to speak the truth and act boldly. We recognize the importance of the moment: Ours is the first generation to experience the impacts of climate change and ecosystem destruction, and the last generation with a window of time to do something about it.
Greenpeace is known for its creative communications and non violent direct action -- and for the people behind them. As part of our People & Culture team, you're charged with supporting and developing our staff as they work toward a green and peaceful future.
Reporting to the Director of People & Culture, the Internal Communications Specialist will support the development and implementation of engaging internal communications strategies and external employer branding campaigns. You will design communications strategies that inspire our team to think, act, and lead in new ways.
This role will be a great fit if you are an experienced communications professional with a strong work ethic and a passion for using storytelling to foster a highly engaged, informed and inspired team. You are a positive and thoughtful self-starter that can take initiative and adapt to evolving circumstances. You have a great attention to detail, and you can think strategically about the big picture and how to communicate it to a variety of internal and external audiences.
You do not feel that any job is too small for you. You thrive under pressure and are comfortable simultaneously managing multiple priorities and projects in a fast paced, deadline driven environment. You are able to self manage and proactively communicate priorities. You have strong writing, speaking and editing skills and you have experience using a variety of tools and platforms to meet the communication needs of diverse communities.
