Concern for the world's health is a driving force for those involved in environmental organisations. If you have a passion for cleaning up the globe, this job will suit you down to the ground. Greenpeace China, which has more than 40,000 donors and supporters in Hong Kong, needs an experienced fund-raising and marketing director. 'You can expect to contribute to, and be part of, an important programme of work to stop climate change, save the ancient forests and protect our world's oceans, earth and sky,' said Mickie Ngai, human resources and administration manager for the independent environmental group. The successful candidate will be responsible for developing and implementing fund-raising and marketing strategies to maximise long-term financial and public support for Greenpeace China. The position requires someone with vision and a a commitment to environmental issues. He or she should also understand the concepts of marketing, fund-raising and advocacy. 'It also requires a cutting-edge creative and strategic thinker,' Ms Ngai said. Applicants should be university graduates and have a minimum of five years' leadership experience in marketing, fund-raising or a non-governmental organisation. Skill sets should include knowledge of financial management because the job includes regular financial reporting and budget control. The successful applicant will be offered a two-year contract and most days will be devoted to procurement of funds to keep the organisation running smoothly. Those with a demonstrated ability to increase net revenues over the long term will be at an advantage. The post is based in Hong Kong, but the new marketing and fund-raising director will also be required to travel to the mainland and other destinations. The successful candidate will interact with the public on a daily basis, so an outgoing personality is crucial. Entertaining high-profile donors and reaching out to the man on the street should come naturally. 'We need a visionary who is optimistic, cheerful, energetic and an excellent team player with a good sense of humour,' Ms Ngai said.
