I.R.O £38,000

This is an exciting opportunity to be a key leader at the heart of Trase (Transparency for Sustainable Economies -, a pioneering transparency initiative run jointly by Global Canopy and the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI).

The vision of Trase is to be the go-to public supply chain information system for companies, governments, investors and other actors seeking to transition towards more sustainable production, trade and consumption for the world´s major ‘forest-risk’ agricultural commodities.  Trase is transforming our understanding of agricultural commodity supply chains by increasing transparency, revealing the links to environmental and social risks in tropical forest regions, and creating opportunities to improve the sustainability of how these commodities are produced, traded and consumed.

The successful candidate will be passionate about the vision of Trase to create positive change, and have the strategic, leadership and creative skills to deliver powerful communications in support of that vision. S/he will be an experienced and creative communications professional, skilled in developing effective strategies, managing teams to deliver complex and challenging communications across regions and institutions, and creating compelling content across different channels.

The role sits within the communications team at Global Canopy, and will work closely with programmatic and communications staff across Global Canopy and SEI.
