Martin here, founder of the #2minutebeachclean.
We need help.
We are at a really exciting stage of our development as a movement. Things are happening. We are beginning to develop brands for the #2minutelitterpick and #2minutestreetclean as well as the #2minutesolution. My book comes out next week. Dolly is working silly hours to keep up with social media.
We are all really busy. Since the plastics debate exploded we’ve been run off our feet, which is great, but takes time and energy. We are developing relationships with partners, managing large amounts of social media traffic, board orders, design work and day to day business.
The #2minutebeachclean is taking over our lives! Personally I have work to do and, having given a lot of the last 4 years to run things, need to spend more time pursuing my own work.
That means there is an opening.
So we are looking for someone really special to lead us into the next stage of our development. Tab, Dolly, Nicky and I have been on this journey for a long time now – since 2008 in fact – and we need some help to make more good stuff happen. Between us we do social media, accounts, run the shop and manage and design all our boards and products for our shop. We also go to events, talk at conferences and generally push our philosophy on anyone who will listen.
Now we need a campaign manager to help us to grow, become a charity and take care of a lot of the enquiries that come in every day from all over the world. We need that person to arrange meetings with potential partners, help us raise funds and generally continue to push the movement on. The right person will also work with Dolly, our social media expert, Tab the designer, Nicky, who runs the shop and me, as founder.
We have grant funding to pay for this post, which will be part time, 2 days a week, for a fixed period of six months. Thereafter, if things are going well and more funding is secured, we will be more than happy to keep the right person on the books. So there’s scope for bigger things. We all grow as one.
There is one snag. We are based in Bude, Cornwall and firmly believe that there is no substitute for working face to face. Could you make a meeting once a week in Bude?
Yes? We want to hear from you. Immediate start. Let’s not dilly about.
Here’s the spec:
- You are green minded and know our work. You believe in what we do.
- You have experience in this sector.
- You can comfortably manage the transition from non-profit to charity.
- You are motivated and can work alone.
- You don’t mind a bit of graft and can turn your hand to anything: meetings, phone calls, skype, emails, the lot.
- You know how social media works.
- You use social media.
- You’re nice. But don’t mind pushing if pushing is what needs doing.
- You like tea (not mandatory).
How to apply:
Send us your CV, no later than the 18th May, with a covering letter telling us why you’re right up our street, where you are based and how you like your tea to firstname.lastname@example.org
We’ll get back to each and every one of you.
Interviews will take place on 8th June in Bude.
