Greenpeace is an independent campaigning organisation, which uses creative confrontation to protect Earth’s ability to nurture life in all its diversity.
We challenge the power of big polluters. We resist those who seek to trap us in old destructive stories. We breathe life into the new stories and ideas that will pave the way towards a green and peaceful future.

About you and the role

As a storyteller, you know that our world is built on stories, and some of those stories need replacing. You know how to tell bold new stories that show a different kind of future is possible.
As a communications specialist at Greenpeace Aotearoa, your job is to craft those new stories and to use all available channels to tell them in compelling and strategic ways to large numbers of people, in ways that inspire action.

You’ll work in a small but dynamic Communications and Engagement team of six, based in our Auckland office and take on the comms lead role on one of our core campaigns. You'll guide communication strategy and tactics, write press releases and opinion pieces, supporter emails and articles for the Greenpeace Aotearoa website. You’ll send press releases and pitch stories to news editors as well as publish them on our website. You’ll use Greenpeace’s social media channels, you’ll work with shooters and editors to help produce videos and photo shoots.

As an organisation, we have a strong commitment to honouring Te Tiriti o Waitangi. With words, video and images as our medium, our goal as the Communications and Engagement Unit is to be conscious of who is telling the story, who is behind the camera lens, and whose voices are being heard. Competency in te reo Māori and understanding of te Ao Māori would be an advantage in this role, but not a requirement.
