Greenpeace Plymouth 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 Plymouth Local Group’s Local Press and Media Co-ordinator role could be right up your street!

About Plymouth Greenpeace Local Group:

Plymouth Local Group is a new Group. It provides a public face to Greenpeace campaigns in the area and brings expertise and energy that are vital to Greenpeace’s successes as a campaigning organisation. In addition to campaigning, Plymouth Group also organises 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 Plymouth 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, alongside going to monthly meetings 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 Plymouth Local Group and to go along to monthly meetings 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 Plymouth
