Greenpeace International (GPI) is searching for a communications

director - its first since the PR division moved to GPI’s Amsterdam

headquarters earlier this year.



The job, at the environmental campaigners co-ordinating body, was

previously held by Richard Titchen when the global communications unit

was based in London. Titchen and GPI’s chief press officer Blair Palese

are understood to have taken a redundancy package, rather than re-locate

to the Netherlands.



GPI has already recruited four press officers to manage media enquiries

in Amsterdam and they will report to the new director. He or she will

also be responsible for an additional staff of 15 who run GPI’s

extensive photo and video library.



GPI, which co-ordinates 32 national Greenpeace offices worldwide, is

looking for someone with a minimum of five years experience at senior

management level in either a corporate or non-governmental organisation.



The communications director will be called on to work with GPI’s

campaigners and lobbying team to create proactive PR initiatives, and

act as a high level spokesperson.
