New role: Community and Partnerships Manager

 

At eXXpedition we believe that in order to create long lasting change we need to take people on the journey with us! That’s why over the last 7 years we’ve taken 260 multidisciplinary, multinational women on voyages, at sea and virtually, to see plastic pollution first hand and to help them find their role to tackle it. We have engaged thousands of media channels, built an online social community, and established relationships with hundreds of partners to support and amplify our work.

Having recently completed our ‘Round the World’ project, eXXpedition is moving into a new phase to focus on scaling our impact through this growing community. We are hiring new team members to work with us to:

  • lead education sessions and facilitate experiences for our community
  • foster impactful relationships with our partners and stakeholders
  • create engaging content to communicate our activities and impact.

 

Location: Remote, but within reach of South West London for regular in-person team meetings

Salary: Dependant on experience (we may hire one junior and one senior role)

Start date: ASAP

Time commitment: Full-time or part-time
