Summary/purpose of the position

Action oordinator

The Actions Unit of Greenpeace East Asia is responsible for bringing our campaign strategies to life, through inspiring, attention-grabbing offline tactics - including direct action, direct communication, protest and artistic intervention - in order to create a just, sustainable future for all.

As Action Coordinator, your role is to facilitate the creation of innovative tactics for campaign impact. You'll work with diverse campaign teams and lead the planning and coordination of offline events, and ensure we have the resources and knowledge needed to successfully implement it.

Action Coordinators utilize skills and knowledge from the arts, industrial climbing, marine operations including diving, project management, field logistics, drones, and new tech. One person won't have all of this, so it's key for our Action Coordinators to have a strong appetite for learning and trying new things, and be able to effectively research, engage and work with specialists and experts. This role also contributes to the management and growth of our activist network and related programs, including running trainings, identifying opportunities for recruitment and growth, and creating pathways for volunteers to contribute and lead strategic actions.

We particularly encourage those with a background in the creative industries, events management, or the arts to apply!
