Greenpeace’s Energydesk energy and climate change news site is looking for a new social media editor to support its journalism and investigations.
It’s a really exciting role finding interesting and creative ways to promote stories from Greenpeace’s investigative team andEnergydesk news site and grow our following on Twitter and Facebook.
The role would suit someone with experience in social media and/or journalism who enjoys finding creative and powerful ways to share stories online, especially Twitter and Facebook.
You don’t need to be a journalist, or a campaigner, but you do need to have a nose for what makes a story interesting, and how to change what you write to be relevant to different audiences and groups of people.
You think information is power and you care about getting things right. In the past you’ve used social media to help spread new information which you think could bring about change.
You may not be an expert, but you are not afraid of complexity and you enjoy finding ways to make complex stories interesting. You probably have working understanding of the debate on energy and climate change.
You are organised, good at multi-tasking and not afraid to use your own initiative to find new ways to make people pay attention.
You believe in the overall aims of Greenpeace and you are excited about using Energydesk’s journalism to reach new audiences and potential supporters for its work.
Greenpeace promotes equal opportunities and welcomes applications from all sections of the community. We select people purely on their skills and abilities.
CLOSING DATE: 18 January 2016
