Organisation Overview

Greenpeace is a movement of people who are passionate about defending the natural world from destruction. Our vision is a greener, healthier and more peaceful planet, one that can sustain life for generations to come.

We are independent. We don’t accept any funding from governments, corporations or political parties – our work is funded by ordinary people. That means we are free to confront governments and corporations responsible for the destruction of the natural world and push for real change.

We do this by investigating, documenting and exposing the causes of environmental destruction. We work to bring about change by lobbying, consumer pressure and mobilising members of the general public. And we take peaceful direct action to protect our Earth and promote solutions for a green and peaceful future.

From campaigners to data analysts, scientists to finance officers, HR professionals to investigative journalists, there is a role for everyone in our fight for environmental justice.

Diversity & Inclusion

Promoting diversity is at the forefront of what Greenpeace do and our focus doesn’t stop at our staff. We are constantly striving to better diversity in all aspects of our organisation, through who we employ, the experiences we represent and the changes for which we campaign.

We welcome applications from all sections of society. If you are passionate about defending our natural world and creating positive change, then we want to hear from you.

There are many ways that we encourage and promote diversity and inclusion throughout Greenpeace UK.

  • We have a diversity and inclusion group which is made up from a range of staff. The purpose of this group is to raise awareness and promote thought and discussion around diversity and inclusion, monitor organisational progress on our diversity and inclusion strategy, and provide input for future opportunities and plans.
  • All Greenpeace employees are required to attend a course on showing respect in the workplace. We are striving to create an organisational culture that allows everyone to feel included, engaged and comfortable at work, and to contribute to the best of their ability.
  • Because of the inequity that underrepresented groups experience in our society, we have developed a programme of development opportunities for people of colour / BAME people to boost their confidence and personal empowerment, to visualise success and to fulfil their potential.
  • We have a range of staff-led groups for people to safely discuss their experiences at Greenpeace. These include groups for people of colour, self-identifying women, people who identify as LGBTQ+, and people with ongoing health conditions, disabilities and different abilities.
  • Our internship programme focuses on providing opportunities for people who are underrepresented in the industry.
  • We publish our gender pay gap information in line with our strong commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.

What We Look For

At Greenpeace we pride ourselves on having a diverse and inclusive culture made up of people who are passionate about defending our natural world and creating positive change.

To ensure that we remain an inclusive workplace and produce the most effective campaigns we can, there are a few things that we look for when hiring new staff:

Passion and dedication are crucial when fighting for our planet, so we look for people who will be passionate about our campaigns.

Non-violent direct action (NVDA) – using peaceful protest to demand social and political change – is central to Greenpeace’s campaign work. All our staff are trained in NVDA principles to gain a deeper understanding of this area of our work, although we recognise people’s autonomy in choosing to take action or not.

Greenpeace is an equal opportunities employer and we believe that a diverse and inclusive culture brings richness to an organisation. We look for people who support this value.

People who think and work collaboratively. Greenpeace produces the best work when a diverse team of thinkers, planners and doers come together to fight tirelessly to expose abuses of power.
