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

Are you ready to lead DEAL’s work in Schools & Education to turn the ideas of Doughnut Economics into transformative practice?

If yes, we’d love to hear from you!

Doughnut Economics Action Lab (DEAL) works with innovative cities, businesses, teachers, and community groups worldwide to turn the ideas of Doughnut Economics into irresistible practice.

Since Doughnut Economics was published, many innovative educators and students worldwide have started to bring these ideas into their places of learning. We are now looking for a Schools & Education Lead to lead DEAL’s work within education, ranging from primary and secondary schools to undergraduate and lifelong learning, with a particular focus on education for students between 12 and 20 years old.

As part of this role, you will work with educators, students, curriculum designers, and other networks for change, to embed the core concepts of Doughnut Economics in curricula and places of learning.

This is a remote-working role and it can be 28 or 35 hours per week. The annual salary is £53,000 (pro rata). We welcome applications from outside the UK as part of our commitment to building a diverse team. At the same time we are still building our capacity to work as an international team and so we are offering this as a remote-working role based within -3/+3 hours of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). As we learn and evolve as a team, our intention is to expand this range further globally for future recruitments.

We acknowledge that many social groups and identities are under-represented in our team and we’re committed to changing this. We are particularly keen to receive applications from people of colour; people with disabilities, people who identify as being LGBTQIA+, and people from other historically marginalised groups.
