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 an opportunity to take your experience of Face to Face (F2F) fundraising management to a whole new level – by leading our hugely impactful Festivals programme. 

You’ll be responsible for managing the F2F festivals fundraising programme across 100+ events a year, delivering a target of c.3,000 long term supporters. Working closely with Events and Logistics colleagues, your role will encompass everything from strategic planning, advance preparation and training to resource management, performance monitoring and detailed reporting, as well as out of season work on door to door support.

Of course your focus will be on the festivals themselves, at which you’ll be expected to coordinate, develop and lead fundraisers by example, ensure safe transport, set up and use of all equipment, and uphold Greenpeace’s values at all times.

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.

You'll have:

  • Substantial experience of leading and managing F2F fundraising teams, including performance management.
  • Experience of F2F fundraising at festivals or events.
  • Excellent organisational and time management skills, with the adaptability to manage conflicting priorities and deadlines and to remain calm under pressure.
  • Good knowledge of MS Office packages, including PowerPoint and Excel, and Google Drive applications.
  • Excellent written and verbal skills, with the flexibility to adapt communications between large corporate festivals and small scale markets.
  • A genuine interest and enthusiasm for environmental issues and the work of Greenpeace.

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.
