The Story of Stuff Project was founded in 2008 to leverage one of the earliest and most successful cause-related viral movies: Annie Leonard's The Story of Stuff. Our mission is to transform the way we make, use and throw away Stuff to be more sustainable, healthy and fair. Over the last decade-plus, our trademark movies have garnered more than 50 million views; we’ve provided sustainability education and training tools to thousands of schools, faith communities, businesses and governments; and our 500,000+ Community members have contributed to countless grassroots campaigns to protect people and the planet. The Break Free from Plastic Comms Hub is a movement serving project hosted at The Story of Stuff Project.
The Global Communications Associate will provide focused communications implementation support for the Break Free From Plastic movement - particularly focused on Comms Hub priorities and providing support (logistics and admin support) to the Comms Hub and Comms Hub Lead.
In practice it is likely to focus:
1. Provide internal communications and administrative support to the Communications Hub and Global Comms Hub Lead (40%)
2. Provide support on key communications initiatives and tools (40%)
3. Provide logistics support for the BFFP global team meetings as required. (10%)
4. Contribute to part of a global team (10%)
The Communications Hub builds strong relationships throughout the movement. This includes those dedicated solely to BFFP work, and those for whom BFFP is a contribution, rather than a key focus. This role will need to be able to maintain a range of different relationships - many of which will be remote and online, some that will be ‘internal’, and some that are key target audiences.
