Working with us

 

Global Action Plan is a charity that helps people live more sustainable lives by connecting what is good for us and good for the planet. We recruit people who are passionate about helping us fulfill this mission, whether you currently work within the sustainability industry or not.

We are working to break down the root causes of environmental breakdown and health inequalities. We're tackling air pollution and working with young people on new ideas about wellbeing and consumerism; that what makes them happier will at the same time be better for the planet. And we bring progressive businesses and school children together to work on ground-breaking projects that develop leaders of future and have a benefit on our environment today.

Through our projects and collaborations, Global Action Plan enables people to see, believe and, crucially, act on the insight that what is good for us is good for the planet.

 

GAP is a fantastic employer with beyond average annual leave, maternity/paternity entitlements, responsibility for change-making projects from day one, and the potential for progression within the organisation to take on additional opportunities to create impact.

 

GAP is committed to ensuring diversity in our team and for all of our roles. We particularly welcome applications from groups that are under represented in the sustainability sector.

 

Please ensure to mention which role you are interested in when contacting us.

"When I was job hunting and I saw that Global Action Plan had won a Happiest Workplace award, I was intrigued. Considering that - alongside all the ways GAP works to help people and planet - I thought it must be a special place, and it is. I'm very proud to work here, and am constantly inspired and amazed by the achievements of a team of our size."
