"Greenpeace can do amazing things to protect the environment, but only if we have huge numbers of people supporting what we do. So the people at Thirtyone are an incredibly important extension of the Greenpeace team, making a direct difference to our campaigns by inspiring thousands of people every year to commit to Greenpeace’s mission. They’re great to work with and great representatives for our work – every successful call is a step closer to saving our planet so the callers really are making a positive impact every day."
Director of Fundraising, Greenpeace
to protect our ancient Forests
There’s eco-awareness, eco-consciousness, eco-activism and then, there’s Greenpeace, the defenders of our ecosystem.
We work with Greenpeace because we care about the Environment. This has to be a given, if you care about the planet we live on, there is no time more critical to saving it than right now.
In 1971, motivated by their vision of a green and peaceful world, a small team of activists set sail from Vancouver, Canada, in an old fishing boat. Their mission was to ‘bear witness’ to US nuclear testing at Amchitka, a tiny island off the West Coast of Alaska, and the last refuge for 3000 endangered sea otters, and home to bald eagles, peregrine falcons and other wildlife.
In 1975, a brave young hippie put himself in the firing line of a Russian whaler’s harpoons off the Californian coast. In these moments, Greenpeace was born.
We’d like to tell you that Thirtyone was born out of something equally as daring and heroic but we can’t. We can, however, tell you how it all happened.
In 2012, Jonathan quit his job. He knew he wanted to do something that would have a bigger social impact and believed fundraising was the answer. He started his journey sat in front of a computer at his kitchen table, knowing most of his friends thought he was mad. By February 2013 he had five fundraisers working with him and had won Thirtyone’s first contract. We are now a team of thirty.
The people we work with share our passion for a good cause, and working together toward a common goal creates the kind of positive work atmosphere most people would love to have.
Working with Greenpeace has allowed us to play a part in a cause that is bigger than ourselves alone. We’ve always been ready to stand up for what we believe in. If you’re looking for a good cause to focus on, organisations like Greenpeace always need people to work on the “frontline,” we talk to people and use our gift of persuasion to convert others to the cause.
We all know that saving the Earth isn’t about saving ourselves – it’s about making the world a better place for all; people, plants and animals, in this generation and for hundreds of generations to come.
Taking care of the Earth is not just a responsibility – it’s a privilege.
To be a Fundraising Agency, not a call centre. We are here to deliver the best value fundraising possible and become an employer of choice within Norfolk.
In the years to come, we want to be able to look back and be really proud of the business we helped to create. We think the best way of achieving this is by living up to the values that we believe in. Our values reflect what we are, how we do things, and where we want to be.
We connect people who care with fantastic causes. We’re a passionate team who are great at talking to people and have had some amazing successes. In our first year we hit the £1 million pledge mark for Greenpeace.
We think it’s a great place to work. Whether you’re new to telephone fundraising or someone with loads of experience, join our team and help to make a difference.

We have a staff party twice a year, a summer BBQ and a great big party at Christmas.
We think it’s important to have a proper break to unwind so we’ve created a staff room that has a pool table, big screen tv and a library.
