Job description

This is a great opportunity to combine your organisational abilities, customer focus and recruitment and applicant tracking know-how. Ensuring effective HR administration and coordination of HR processes as part of our HR team, you’ll also provide administrative assistance and guidance to the wider organisation in support of HR lifecycle processes.

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.


Working with Senior HR Advisers and hiring managers, you’ll handle the administration of the complete recruitment and onboarding lifecycle. In addition, you’ll provide first-line support to staff and managers on HR procedures, terms and conditions, staff benefits, etc., managing monthly HR processes and annual events such as salary increases and leave calculations.

As the lead user of our Applicant Tracking System, you’ll train and support others, including applicants, HR users and hiring managers, and will be expected to create and maintain data storage and sharing systems, records and reports. Your role will also encompass Learning & Development administration, from liaising with external training providers to booking delegates and venues, as well as kicking off induction sessions.

You'll have:

  • Substantial experience of managing the full recruitment lifecycle, with experience of managing an applicant tracking system and an understanding of the use of social media in recruitment.
  • Experience of HR and/or Learning & Development administration, with the ability to develop and manage effective systems and processes.
  • Database experience, including updating, maintaining and extracting data, plus very good IT skills across the MS Office suite.
  • Customer service experience, with strong communication and interpersonal skills.

We give you:

The opportunity to continue to develop both personally and professionally, taking advantage of the wide range of learning and development opportunities available to our staff. We offer great benefits such as a generous pension scheme, subsidised lunches, free yoga and a wealth of well-being resources, just to name a few. Take a look at our Work For Greenpeace pages to find out more about what it’s like to work for us and why you should apply.

Our commitment to diversity: Greenpeace UK is committed to providing equal opportunities for everyone regardless of their background. We acknowledge that people from certain backgrounds are under-represented in environmental and campaigning organisations and we’re committed to doing what we can to correct this. We are particularly keen to receive applications from people of colour; people with disabilities; people who identify as being LGTBQIA; people who have a mental health condition; and people who identify as working class now or in the past.
