A key responsibility will be developing and implementing our autumn campaign. As the project lead you will work with teams across the Foundation as well as our commercial partners, in tailoring the promotion to their brands and consumers. Your skills in leading digital campaigns, producing promotional materials and managing complex budgets will be an asset.

If you can demonstrate your success as a marketer in the commercial or not-for-profit sector, are an outstanding project manager and an excellent communicator capable of building effective relationships both internally and externally we would like to hear from you.

It’s an exciting time to join the Fairtrade Foundation - we’ve recently undertaken changes to be best placed to successfully deliver our 2013-2015 strategy. This is a maternity cover role and we are looking for a strong individual who can add value to our existing programme.

Fairtrade Foundation is a passionate and ambitious development organisation committed to tackling poverty and injustice through trade. We are best known as the independent, not-for-profit body behind the FAIRTRADE Mark, a product label assuring consumers that their purchase helps disadvantaged farmers and workers in developing countries secure a better deal.
