Organization : Greenpeace Southeast Asia (Thailand)
Type : Nonprofits / องค์กรไม่แสวงหาผลกำไร

Deadline : 30 / September / 2017
A major component of all Greenpeace activities is the groundwork and support provided through our warehouses. Tools and theatrical props, as well as climbing, communications, and boating equipment are purchased, stored, and maintained in these spaces, as are all Greenpeace boats and vehicles. These spaces are also used for trainings, banner-making, and prop-building.
This is a highly dynamic position. Core responsibilities include:
- Ensuring that vehicles, boats, other equipment, and the facility itself are in working order
- Hiring and supervising volunteers, activists, interns, international activists, and other staff in the warehouse
- Traveling for action coordination/support or personal development/trainings, sometimes for weeks at a time, as well as seeking out similar opportunities for staff and activists.
- Ensuring that the warehouse, equipment and the people using them are adhering to safety standards/ protocols
- Creating, developing and maintaining new systems in an ever-changing environment.
THE IDEAL CANDIDATE:
The ideal candidate will probably need the motivation that comes from wanting to work on the environment, and being inspired by and believing in non-violent direct action as a method of working for change.
The successful candidate will be motivated and willing to learn, and as willing to do dull, monotonous, non-glamorous work as amazing, exciting, challenging jobs that you could never imagine. Perhaps you’ll know how to rebuild an engine, but far more important would be figuring out who could get it done - in the best and most cost-effective way, safely, within a defined timeline, amidst a blur of other simultaneous activities. We have a lot of equipment, including a lot of unique and specialized equipment – no one is or could be expected to know it all.
You could have some/much knowledge of boats, climbing, and out-of-the-ordinary shipping. It would be helpful to be artistic and handy/familiar with tools and building. You’ll keep an eye out for simple systems that will increase efficiency and functionality, and have a sense for budgets, and evaluating spending.
The ideal candidate might not know all of the work safety regulations, but they’ll know why its important ,. You will be comfortable and willing to work with all kinds of people: mechanics, activists, contractors, other Greenpeace staff, police, and lawyers. They must recognize when a problem is outside their realm of experience and either speed-read their way into a new profession or find the appropriate person for the job.
If you have an affinity and/or talent for interviewing, invoices, driving boats, playing with robots, herding cats, video conferencing, gaffer tape, punctuality, facilitating, machinery, and the environment, you might be the right candidate for this position.
