For over forty years, Greenpeace has been working all over the world to protect the environment. We save the whales, protect the rainforests, fight toxic polluters and shine a spotlight on the companies that profit from environmental destruction and we d this all through public support. We are financially independent of corporate and government money, we are uncompromising in our campaigns, we are a global movement of 3,000,000 people, and we're hiring in San Jose!
Frontline is Greenpeace's hugely successful, face-to-face fundraising and member recruitment program. Team members work together to reach out and encourage individuals to get involved as Greenpeace members to build the people power necessary to take on the coal industry, save our forests, protect our oceans and keep communities free of toxic chemicals.
We offer complete training, ongoing support and a competitive, non-commission salary starting at $13-15 per hour plus performance bonuses. Greenpeace USA values a healthy work-life balance and has flexible, family-friendly employment policies. At date of hire, staff receives paid holidays. To encourage the use of public transportation, we offer subsidies for staff that choose to ride mass transit to work. On completion of working 90 days, we offer a competitive benefits package for employees that includes medical, dental, and vision coverage. Depending on what option you choose, your medical and/or dental coverage could be at no cost to you. Greenpeace fully covers life insurance, short-term and long-term disability coverage and employee assistance programs for staff. Staff members are also eligible to participate in a generous 401K matching program. Employees get paid time off for sick, vacation and personal leave after 90 days.
Greenpeace is committed to the growth and development of staff and fostering a creative workplace culture.
Frontline requires strong communication skills, enthusiasm for talking directly with the public, a commitment to non-violence as a means of affecting change, and a passion for making a difference!
