HR Data Intern

Job description

Greenpeace is at the forefront of environmental campaigning and we have embraced data as our friend and ally. This is a fantastic opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to a great cause, learn loads, put a future-proof skill set on your CV, and work in a fun, inclusive environment.

We are looking for a detail-oriented, enthusiastic and highly collaborative data nerd to join the Global HR Data Insights function. This position is integral to Greenpeace’s ability to inform data driven people practices throughout the global organisation.

As an HR Information Systems Intern, you will be working as part of the brand new Global HR Data Insights Function of Greenpeace International. You will be based in the national regional office of Greenpeace Aotearoa New Zealand, which employs around 50 campaign, administration and management staff.

You will work with the Data Insights Manager (Global HR) to clean and migrate HR data from Greenpeace’s 27 National Regional Offices to a central Google Cloud BigQuery database. Wherever possible, you will collaboratively design processes that automate and streamline data migration.

In return, we can offer you a friendly, fast-paced, immensely rewarding working environment. There is ample opportunity for your development. In this highly responsible intern role, you will collaborate with a global team and suggest the most effective tools to manage and analyse HR data that enable our team to tell compelling stories about the people we work with.


The ideal applicant will have a range of skills including:

  • Google Cloud BigQuery and SQL skills or related skills paired with a keen interest in proactively developing your technical skill set
  • Experience with data cleansing and/or migration
  • Ability to build and support relationships amongst a diverse team
  • Meticulous attention to detail
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Independent problem solving, aka googling stuff


Applications close November 24. Note that this is an unpaid internship with a minimum commitment of 15 hrs per week over 3 months. Please let us know how we can accommodate you best, we will make every effort to help out with sponsorship applications, flexible hours, etc.


We can reimburse you for your commute on public transport and there will be a weekly free intern lunch.


Once we have reviewed all applications, we will be in touch via phone or email. Our usual intern recruitment process consists of a brief phone interview, a consecutive work task, a face to face interview, and reference checks.
