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 Arun & Adur Local Group’s Local Press and Media Coordinator role could be right up your street!

Arun & Adur Local Group 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, Arun & Adur Group also organises fundraising and outreach events like film screenings and gigs.

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 Arun & Adur Group, a Network of Local Media Coordinators all across the UK, and supported by a member of staff at Greenpeace. And you will get excellent training to do your role.
