(We normally offer a starting salary at the start of the range)

Full-time (37.5h) / Fixed term contract for up to 12 months 

Based in Islington, London

Greenpeace UK is an independent national/regional organisation within the global Greenpeace campaigning network, which acts to change attitudes and behaviour, to protect and conserve the environment and to promote peace. The global network of Greenpeace organisations comprises 26 independent national/regional Greenpeace organisations with presence in over 55 countries across Europe, Africa, the Americas, Asia and the Pacific, as well as a coordinating and supporting organisation, Greenpeace International.

This is a chance to use all your know-how to deliver results, facilitate change and support our ambition in the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) and anti-racism arena.

In this flexible and far-reaching role, offered as maternity cover on a fixed term for up to 12 months, you’ll be leading and co-ordinating Greenpeace UK’s key anti-racism and wider EDI initiatives and providing specialist support to the organisation as a trusted advisor. It will be your ultimate objective to develop confidence and ability in staff so that they understand and engage with EDI issues and to promote this work internally and externally, celebrating progress and achievements.

As we work towards our anti-racism commitments, we are addressing these commitments both as an organisational priority and as they link with our wider EDI work, with our environmental mission, and with our own organisational culture. Working in all areas and at all levels, you’ll play a key part in helping our leadership, departmental and campaign teams to see and act upon these links and driving our work to build an inclusive culture.

Please take a look at the Job Description if you are interested. It’s ok if you don’t tick all the boxes – we would still love to hear from you, especially if you believe you’ve got what it takes to drive Greenpeace UK forward with this important work.

Location: Islington, London. Our hybrid working model enables us to enjoy the benefits of both office based and remote working. We ask that staff work from the office in Islington 40% of their time, with 20% required as a minimum. Reasonable adjustments as well as specific office based needs will be considered for those with long term health conditions and disabilities.

What we’re looking for:

  • Proven ability to deliver positive results in comparable work, through successful project delivery and/or improved outcomes.
  • Experience in advising on EDI/anti-racism to foster an inclusive internal culture, including finding and proposing solutions, and supporting change and learning.
  • In-depth knowledge of anti-racism, anti-oppression, intersectionality and all areas of EDI, gained as an EDI/anti-racism lead or trained EDI/anti-racism facilitator.
  • An understanding of barriers faced by marginalised groups and of the connection between racial injustice and environmental harm.
  • Experience of leading and supporting groups for people identifying with marginalised identities, as forums both for driving cultural change and peer solidarity

We give you: 
You’ll be encouraged to develop both personally and professionally, taking advantage of the wide range of learning and development opportunities available to our staff. We offer great benefits such as a generous pension scheme, subsidised lunches, free yoga and a wealth of well-being resources, just to name a few.
