Hi, we’re 10:10 – we bring people together to do bold, beautiful things that help tackle climate change.

Are you a stickler for everything being exactly the right shade of 10:10 pink? Do you have a gut instinct for the sort of gifs that’ll stop people scrolling? Do you relish the challenge of communicating big issues to diverse audiences? Do you have a portfolio of eye-catching design work and desire to create more? Do you want to tackle climate change head on? You could be just who we’re looking for…

We’re looking for a part-time design and creative officer to join our growing communications team and ensure everything we produce looks fabulous. You’d report to the head of communications and work alongside other comms team members as well as fundraisers and campaigning staff.

About the opportunity

You’ll be the key design eye in the team, in charge of making sure everything 10:10 produces looks clean, clear, beautiful and consistent – from our equal ops form to a new campaign launch. Supported by copywriting staff you’ll help us catch the eye of our supporters, intrigue new audiences, and motivate them all to take action on climate change.

You’ll also be our in-house graphic designer, helping us produce high quality graphical material including websites, email marketing assets, posters and reports. As well as producing creative assets yourself, you’ll also work with freelance photographers, designers and film-makers too. It’d be useful if you had some experience of commissioning creative work, but it’s not essential.

You’ll be chief advocate for good design within the 10:10 team, offering training where appropriate to help equip team members to produce their own. Part of this will be a matter of brand custodianship – we want your design expertise and strong visual awareness to help keep everything at 10:10 on point.

As part of a small, flexible communications team, you’ll contribute to general marketing, media, outreach and campaign strategy. And we all chip in to make the tea and do the washing up, so there’s that too.

Part time dependent upon demand and availability

£10 to £12 per hour

Global Generation is a youth education charity that operates a moveable vegetable garden and cafe on the King’s Cross development site.  We use land-based activities and the metaphors of ecological and cosmic processes to support building community between each other and the natural world. We primarily work with local young people, businesses and families in King’s Cross as well as at our campsite in Wiltshire. We combine activities such as supporting bees, carpentry, urban food growing, cooking, and eating together with dialogue, story, creative writing, silence and stillness.  These practices help us to create the conditions for people to come together in a fuller and more connected sense of who they are and what they are a part of and from that space, to support them to practically contribute to ecological and social change.

When people think of skips they think of construction, building and dirt. We didn’t. We thought less rubble and more rhubarb. That’s why we started using skips to farm food that, like us, is locally grown. So pop over and say hi. No hard hat needed.

We are looking for creative, dedicated and passionate Chefs to enter into our pool of freelance Chefs. As one of our freelance chefs you will be responsible for producing and working on events that are taking place in the garden and beyond.
