We're recruiting!

We're looking to recruit a Communications and Marketing Co-ordinator to join our small team - to help us to build a grassroots zero waste movement in Leeds.

Since starting up with a Facebook page and not much else in 2018, we've delivered a number of successful projects in Leeds that have engaged a wide range of people in practical ways to waste less in their daily lives.

With over 15,000 social media followers, an established local media presence, and a wide network of local and national stakeholders, we feel that now is the time to invest more in how we communicate as effectively as we can with people - so we can continue to have more impact.

We are looking to recruit a Communications and Marketing Co-ordinator to join our team. It's a 25 hour role, with an initial 12 month contract - with those hours worked flexibly, including, of course, home-working where appropriate and most effective.

We set up Zero Waste Leeds as our social enterprise wanted to get involved in a local, practical, community-led response to the climate emergency. How we communicate with people, how we tell stories, how we share a vision of a better future, and how we encourage people to get involved are all key - both to our continued success, and, we believe, a sustainable future for the city and world we live in.

If you're a communications professional with a flair for engaging broad audiences - often on the tightest of budgets - then we'd love you to apply. You can find more about the role in this google doc or this PDF. If you have any trouble viewing the document please email info@zerowasteleeds.org.uk

The closing date for applications is 9am on Friday 21st May - and we plan to hold interviews online on the 26th and 27th of May.
