Greenpeace is an international non-profit global campaigning organisation. Our independence and global reach enable us to stand for positive change through action in order to defend nature and promote peace. We investigate and expose global environmental problems, confront those in positions of power and present alternative solutions.

Unearthed, Greenpeace’s award winning in-house journalism unit, is looking to hire a new world editor to join its team of climate and environment reporters.

As part of our commitment to tackling systemic racism and class discrimination we are particularly interested in supporting and encouraging applicants of backgrounds and identities that are under-represented in the media.

Our stories on oil lobbying, waste incinerators in poorer areas, lobbying by oil giants, deforestation linked to UK meat, corporate greenwash and bad science about toxic pesticides regularly make international headlines at the likes of the New York Times, Guardian, FT, BBC and Channel 4.

Now we want a resourceful, creative and collaborative journalist and editor to help us build a network of reporters and collaborators to tell global environmental stories which hold power to account.

The ideal candidate will have experience working with locally based journalists around the world, with a particular focus on Africa. They will know how to manage risk and will have a particular focus on stories which tackle environmental racism.

In exchange for your passion, skills and ideas you’ll have access to you’ll have access to our existing network, our offices around the world and our growing journalistic toolkit including undercover filming, drone technology, satellite footage, ship tracking, mapping, science and air pollution experts.

Greenpeace is committed to being an equal-opportunity employer. We seek to create a diverse, inclusive and adaptable environment where people are encouraged and supported to do their best work.

This is envisaged as a full-time role but we are open to a four-day-a-week role or flexible working to help to support parents and carers.

Location: Islington, London. We are currently trialling a hybrid working model to enjoy the benefits of both office based and remote working. The current expectation is for staff to work from the office in Islington at least 40% of their time. Reasonable adjustments to the trial policy as well as specific office based needs will be considered for those with long term health conditions and disabilities.
