Thank you for your interest in volunteering for Greenpeace. There are two ways in which you can help us deliver our campaigns; by becoming an active supporter or by volunteering at our office in Islington, London.
We have various different departments here at Greenpeace UK; Marketing, Supporter Services, Active Supporters Unit, Campaigns, Actions, Policy & Solutions, Media, Web Team, Publications, Finance, Human Resources, Reception and Information Systems - all of which occasionally need help from volunteers.
Voluntary opportunities range from helping with administrative tasks, mail outs, data entry, data analysis, translations, design and editing, research projects, assisting with events coordination, painting, sewing, carpentry, and many more. Length of opportunities can be anything from a few hours to 1 day to a year.
If you are interested in volunteering in our office, please complete the volunteer application form and either fax (020 7865 8202), email email@example.com or post your application form to:
Human Resources Department
Why volunteer? Let Frances explain...
Once received, we will keep hold of your application and inform you of any opportunities which may arise. We aim to place people according to their skills, experience, interests and availability. The more information you provide on the application form, the greater the likelihood of us being able to find an appropriate way to use your skills. We are very fortunate to receive a high level of interest for volunteering in our office, but with only limited opportunities available, this unfortunately means it is not always possible to place everyone who applies.
All voluntary opportunities in our office are between 10am-6pm Monday to Friday. Our office is closed at weekends. To volunteer in our office you must live within easy travelling distance to our office and be a minimum of 18 years old. Unfortunately, it is very difficult for us to place those applicants applying from overseas or a long distance from London. I'm afraid we are unable to provide or help with finding accommodation. However, we are able to cover lunch and travel expenses within London only.
If you wish to volunteer overseas please contact one of our international offices directly - Greenpeace offices worldwide.
