We're hiring!

We're looking for a comms specialist to help us capture what we're learning and share it with the world. Could this be you?

Insight and Communications Lead

About the role

We're looking for someone who can take our ideas and put them out into the world in ways that find an appreciative audience, developing and executing strategic marketing plans and managing our various media channels. We want someone who can contribute to the development of our thinking as a company, offering challenge and asking insightful questions, informed by their participation in company projects and experiments.

We’re looking for someone who is...

  • An experienced comms professional.

  • Aligned to our ideals, our approach, our indifference to orthodoxy.

  • Interested in and keen to learn more about systems thinking and systems change.

  • Deeply invested in learning, unwilling to sit still, self-reflective, and as comfortable with uncertainty as any of us can be.

  • Eager to work for a company that does things differently but doesn’t pretend to have all the answers – we need your help finding more of those answers.

  • Self-reflective, willing to put themselves out of their comfort zone, while also being deeply caring about people.
