GEN supports a network of people dedicated to social and ecological justice, healing and planetary wellbeing. With almost 600 people, and representing 85 countries, our Network is home to artists, academics, activists, researchers, community-leaders, poets – and many more – who together represent an extraordinary diversity of backgrounds and experiences. One of our central goals is to help support and facilitate these individuals to address socio-environmental problems across scales, and to develop their vision and leadership in a network of peers.
We are looking for a new Programme Coordinator to join our small, dedicated team to help our ambitious programme of work and vision continue to thrive. We are looking for someone who loves interacting with new people and is curious about the world and diverse cultures.
This role will involve maintaining and building our strong Network through our five pillars of work which include GEN events (both online and in person), our GEN Community, Project and Partnerships, the GEN Mentoring Programme and our Research and Practice. Read about our pillars here.
- Salary rate starting at a minimum of £24k/annum pro rata (net) will be commensurate with non-London charity rates in the UK and dependent on the individual’s experience.
- Freelance 12-month contract for 3 days per week – with potential to increase to 4 days per week. UK-based candidates will be eligible for a PAYE contract following a probation period.
- Working remotely from home and/or a personal office and travelling occasionally for GEN events and meetings.
- Ideally to be based in the UK or Europe, or if you are applying from a timezone that is vastly different from the UK, you will need to be flexible to overlap with the rest of the team’s working hours (UK/CET timezone).
How to Apply:
Please write ‘[your name] GEN Programme Coordinator app’ as the email subject.
Deadline for applications: 12th April 2021
What to include in your Vision Statement:
We see this as an expanded, more flexible version of a cover letter. This is your opportunity to share with us why you feel this role resonates with you and your life experience so far. We invite you to consider the following questions and include them in your statement, if you find them useful:
- What do you think are the most pressing ecological issue and social challenges facing humanity today?
- From what you have learnt about GEN so far (even if by our website), why do you think our work is important and what impact do you think it has, or could have in the future?
- What makes you come alive and gives you inspiration/hope/fulfillment?
We would also love to hear from you what you do outside of ‘work’ and if you have any self-care, personal and/or community resilience practices which you integrate into your life.
Diversity, equity, inclusion and social justice forms part of GEN’s core foundation and guides every aspect of our programme of work and working culture. We encourage women, people of colour and Indigenous ancestry, LGBTQ+ individuals and members of minority communities to apply for this role.
