Could you be DEAL’s Business & Enterprise Lead?

Do you want to help create a world in which people and planet thrive in balance?

Are you ready to lead DEAL’s work with businesses & enterprises and help to turn the ideas of Doughnut Economics into transformative practice?

If yes, we’d love to hear from you!

Doughnut Economics Action Lab (DEAL) is an organization working with innovative cities and regions, community groups, educators, organisations, social enterprises and businesses worldwide to co-create and spread brilliant tools and resources that turn the ideas of Doughnut Economics into transformative action.

In this newly created role, you will be leading DEAL’s engagement with businesses and enterprises worldwide that are interested in putting Doughnut Economics into practice in their core operations. You’ll be the first point of contact with such enterprises, working with them to develop and apply tools and methodologies that support business practices to become regenerative and distributive by design. 

We are welcoming applications from outside the UK, even during the uncertainty of Brexit, because we are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive team. At the same time, we are still building up our capacity to work as an international team, and so we are offering this as a remote-working role based within -1/+3 hours of Universal Coordinated Time (UTC). As we learn and evolve as a team, our intention is to expand this range globally in future recruitments.

This role is offered as an initial 1 year contract, with the expectation of extension, subject to funding and strategy. The UK-based pay is £50,000 per annum, and will be adjusted on the basis of national location to reflect relative costs of living.

People of all nationalities, race, sex, religion, disability, sexual orientation and identity are welcome at Doughnut Economics Action Lab and we especially encourage applications from people of colour, women, LGBTQ+ people, people with disabilities, and people who have experienced other forms of exclusion or marginalisation.
