About Greenpeace UK

Greenpeace stands for positive change through action. We investigate, expose and confront environmental abuse by governments and corporations around the world. We champion environmentally responsible and socially just solutions, including scientific and technological innovation.

Greenpeace UK is part of a truly global campaigning movement. With almost 3 million financial supporters around the world, and a presence in 55 countries, we work where we will have the biggest global impact. From China to Brazil, Indonesia to Russia and – uniquely – on the high seas, Greenpeace works to defend the natural world and promote peace.

Globally, our priority campaigns are the prevention of climate change, the protection of the world’s ancient forests and defending our oceans from the threat of over exploitation. Right now we are running our most ambitious campaign to protect the world’s oceans and rainforests. These are exciting, but immensely challenging campaigns.

Greenpeace currently has nearly 150,000 financial supporters in the UK and is funded by supporter subscriptions and donations from individuals. To maintain our independence and enable us to campaign without fear of compromise, Greenpeace does not accept corporate or government donations.

Greenpeace UK employs approximately 175 people at its offices in Canonbury Villas, Islington.  Staff work in areas as diverse as campaigns, media, fundraising, mobilisation, finance, human resources and direct actions.

Everyone who works for Greenpeace is passionate about what we’re trying to achieve. We have big ambitions for our work and we believe it’s an immensely rewarding and inspiring place to work.

Greenpeace UK values difference, promotes equality and challenges discrimination, enhancing our organisational capability. In 2018, we were delighted to be awarded the National Equality Standard, one of the UK’s most rigorous accreditations for equality, diversity and inclusion. We understand how important a diverse workforce is for our success, and we welcome and encourage applications from people of all backgrounds.
