8 Sep 2022

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.

This is a great opportunity to apply your ability to manage, analyse and interpret data - identifying ways to maximise the value of data in decision making across our supporter engagement teams, and developing tools and reports that help us achieve our goals and create meaningful change.

Greenpeace UK collects and uses a wealth of complex data, particularly around engagement with supporters. The first key element of your role is to build a strong data foundation through data governance, including compliance work. The second element is to maximise the value of the data to provide high quality assets that can be used to achieve a range of goals in multiple contexts.

In addition, your responsibilities will include data set creation, quality assurance, data analysis, business intelligence reporting etc, both in support of data and insight project work and in direct response to queries. In doing so you'll need to keep up to date with relevant law and best practice, as well as with the full spectrum of Greenpeace's fundraising, engagement and wider campaign activities.

Location: Islington, London. We are currently trialling a hybrid working model to enjoy the benefits of both office based and remote working. The current expectation is for staff to work from the office in Islington at least 40% of their time. Reasonable adjustments to the trial policy as well as specific office based needs will be considered for those with long term health conditions and disabilities.


You'll have:

  • Ability to communicate with a range of teams to understand their needs, update them on progress and identify improvements.
  • Excellent working knowledge of SQL.
  • Experience in delivering reporting using a Business Intelligence tool, such as Tableau.
  • Proven skills in analysing data and drawing actionable conclusions.
  • Ability to spot and eliminate poor data quality, poor practice or non-compliance.
  • Knowledge and experience of applying data protection legislation and, ideally, fundraising best practice.
  • Ability to collaborate effectively across a project, ideally in an Agile environment.

    We give you:
    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. 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:

    At Greenpeace UK we are committed to advancing diversity, inclusion, equity and becoming anti-racist. We acknowledge that people from certain backgrounds are under-represented in environmental and campaigning organisations and want to do all we can to correct this. In particular, we want to be more representative of Britain's diversity at senior levels of GPUK. If you have the skills we need and are a person of colour, disabled, LGBTQIA, non-binary, have a mental health condition, or if you identify as working class now or in the past, we would welcome an application from you.
