Transition Network is recruiting!
By Sarah McAdam 2nd November 2018
Please note: this recruitment process has now been completed and the Transition Network team does not have any current vacancies. Keep an eye on the website and/or follow us on Facebook or Twitter to find out about future opportunities for paid work.
Are you interested in joining a creative, innovative and committed team working to support the Transition movement, amplify stories of community-led change, and nurture collaborations across difference?
Do you have the skills, curiosity and passion to gather, create and share stories about Transition which reflect the diversity of this international movement and inspire others to reimagine and rebuild our world?
Are you willing to step into a self-managing team engaged in an ongoing experiment about how to work effectively with emergence and complexity?
We plan to expand our small team and are looking for one or two people who could contribute in multiple ways to our work. Our primary focus is on bringing more communication skills and capacity into the organisation, but we do not have a separate communications function and are not trying to create one. Instead, we are looking for a person or 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.
This is an unusual recruitment exercise which will require candidates actively 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 which will shift over time as new needs and opportunities emerge.
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.
