Greenpeace Bristol 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 Bristol Group’s Local Press and Media Co-ordinator role could be right up your street!
About Bristol Greenpeace Group:
Bristol Group provides a public face to Greenpeace campaigns in this area and brings expertise and energy that are vital to Greenpeace’s successes as a campaigning organisation. In addition to campaigning, Bristol 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 a Network of Local Press and 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.
Please note this is an unpaid volunteer role.

Friendly and confident engaging with members of the public

You don’t have to be really knowledgeable about the media, or a trained journalist - we provide training and support
