Are you interested in joining a creative, innovative and committed team working to support the international Transition movement, amplify stories of community-led change, and nurture collaborations across difference?
Do you have skills and experience that you are willing to use flexibly in response to fast-changing needs and opportunities?
Can you contribute to our development as a non-hierarchical organisation exploring, and seeking to model, the changes we want to see in the world?
We plan to expand our small team and are looking for a person, or potentially two people, who could contribute in multiple ways to our work. We need people with the dynamism, flexibility and self-awareness to occupy shifting roles within our constantly-evolving structure, identifying and helping to shape the projects where their experience, knowledge and creativity will have the greatest impact.
Right now, we have a particular need for someone with the skills and experience to lead on the development of internal policies, systems and practices which are aligned to our shared governance model, enhance the wellbeing of our team and support us to deliver on our organisational purpose. We are also very keen to broaden the diversity of perspectives and lived experience in what is still a disproportionately (although not exclusively) white, middle class team.
This is an unusual recruitment exercise which will require candidates to explore possibilities with the selection panel and to be comfortable with a degree of uncertainty. Your questions and ideas are very welcome throughout the process. The potential reward is a fascinating job which aligns with your values and will enable you to move dynamically between a focus on organisational development and external delivery.
Whilst our team is mainly UK-based at the moment, we support an international movement and are actively seeking opportunities to distribute power, influence, resources and opportunities for paid work as widely as possible. We are very happy to explore the practicalities and costs (carbon and financial) of employing individuals based in mainland Europe or beyond. We encourage you to apply for the role if you feel you meet the person specification.
