Global Climate and Energy Campaign Strategist, Greenpeace – International

Organization: Greenpeace

Position Title: Global Climate and Energy Campaign Strategist

Location: Any Greenpeace office globally. Individuals with experience across Africa, China, Brazil, Indonesia or Philippines are particularly encouraged to apply.

Application Deadline: Position open until filled

Description: Greenpeace is looking to hire a team of superstars to help lead us out of this climate mess. We need amazing storytellers and communicators who can inspire a billion acts of courage to change our broken economic system to help save the climate. We need strategists and experts who can find the chinks in the armor for mass movements to exploit. We need people who can convert big ideas into transformative experiences.

The role as Strategist for Climate & Energy campaigns 
You identify new opportunities for intervention, prepare the groundwork for campaigns in new areas, and intensively mentor and collaborate with national offices. You strengthen Climate & Energy campaigners’ and movement-builders’ ability to build a green and peaceful future. You help to marry excellent analysis of global trends with opportunities for transformative change.


  • Shape Greenpeace’s overall Climate & Energy strategy and roll up your sleeves to make it happen.
    • Help national offices develop ambitious, targeted campaigns and work in a team to shape and sharpen the overall basket of global projects.
    • Deploy your special talent – whether that’s communication, movement-building, legal experience, killer campaigning, expertise in the energy sector, economics, transport, agriculture, global impacts of climate change or whatever relevant brain-power you have – and grow that ability across Greenpeace through mentoring and skills-sharing.
    • Foster innovation, incubate special projects and keep looking for opportunities to catalyze transformative change.
    • Cultivate and build alliances to keep a steady flow of new ideas into Greenpeace, and to deploy Greenpeace’s leadership and insights to fuel external movements.
    • Demonstrate excellent project management and foster collaboration between national offices. Support offices through all phases of project lifecycle – project pitching, development, implementation, and monitoring & evaluation. Encourage and promote a risk-taking approach in order to test new ideas and innovate.
    • Help develop fast feedback loops to improve ongoing projects and fearlessly seize moments for action.


Greenpeace is looking for excellent strategists with a mix of skills and expertise, including but not limited to communications, movement-building, energy sector, campaigning, investigations, economy, and legal. You may even have a non-traditional background but brilliant insights in how to achieve big wins on climate or radically change peoples’ consumption habits.
