Job description

Greenpeace Local Group - Local Press and Media Co-ordinator

Do you enjoy creative writing? Have you got an eye for a striking photo? Would you like to get involved in campaigning on global issues in your local area? 

Then Greenpeace Group’s Local Press and Media Co-ordinator role in Falmouth, Leicester, Merseyside, Preston, Salisbury or South West London, could be right up your street! 

About Greenpeace Local Groups:

Local Groups provide a public face to Greenpeace campaigns across the UK and bring expertise and energy that are vital to Greenpeace’s successes as a campaigning organisation. In addition to campaigning, Group also organise fundraising and outreach events like film screenings and gigs.


About the role:

Local Press and Media Co-ordinators get local press coverage of Group campaigns and activities. This involves sending out press releases, writing letters to the Editor of a paper, taking photos, and building relationships with journalists.

Getting local press coverage means that more people read about our campaigns and know that there’s a local Greenpeace group near them. It also allows us to reach MPs and other decision-makers. Having content written by local people, for local people is so much more relevant and inspiring than anything written by a central press team!

You’ll be part of the Local Group, a Network of Local Media Co-ordinators all across the UK, and supported by a member of staff at Greenpeace.

You’ll usually be asked to do one or two things a month, which will probably take around 4 - 6 hours per month, as well as attending monthly meetings (currently online) and supporting with campaign activities.

Please note this is an unpaid volunteer role.

You are…

  • Interested in global campaigning, such as on climate change, plastics, deforestation
  • Friendly and confident engaging with members of the public
  • Happy to get involved with the Local Group and to go along to monthly meetings (currently online) and take part in campaign activities
  • An excellent written communicator
  • Able to take a good photo
  • You don’t have to be really knowledgeable about the media, or a trained journalist - we provide training and support
  • Internet and computer savvy, and have reliable internet access
  • Ideally available for at least one year, but we understand that circumstances can change, and we want to make the role work for you
  • Local to Falmouth, Leicester, Merseyside, Preston, Salisbury or South West London,

Please note this is an unpaid volunteer role.
