Job description

This role provides an opportunity to make a meaningful difference for some of the world's poorest women. Managed by our CEO, you’ll lead the Trust’s work promoting our ethical, fair trade online over the summer. This ethical enterprise directly supports the livelihoods of 50 women in Ghana, Sierra Leone and Uganda. Every additional penny raised is reinvested in our projects fighting poverty and keeping girls in school. 

About Our Charity: 

The Paul Hodges Trust is a small but high impact international development charity working in Sierra Leone, Ghana, Uganda and Tanzania. We fund grassroots women's organisations delivering long-lasting change for some of the world's poorest women and girls. This role is a brilliant opportunity to gain experience working in a small international development charity.

About The Role: 

Our ethical, plastic-free Etsy shop enables us to support the livelihoods of some of the worlds’ most vulnerable women while raising much needed funds for our poverty-busting projects. We're looking for someone to help us maximise our sales during one of the most important times of the year. 

The main objectives of the role are:

  1. Use digital, promotion and marketing skills to drive sales of ethical, women-made projects 
  2. Identify new fabric-based product opportunities and work with the team in Uganda to design, commission and launch the products in our shop.

This is a remote working flexible role open to UK-based candidates. We would ask you to commit 1 day a week for a minimum of 2 months. 

Key Responsibilities: 

- Promote our products and increase sales via websites, magazines, newspapers, blogs, apps etc  

- Creating content to market our products on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc), including taking photographs of stock and using Canva to create compelling promotional images  

- Identifying sales trends and using this to support the design and growth of the shop

- If required (covering CEO holiday periods), packaging and despatching online orders to customers in a timely and professional manner

Who would this role suit? 

We're looking for someone with some digital, promotions, fundraising or marketing experience who cares about women's rights and would like to gain experience in the charity sector.

You need to be organised, positive, creative and with good attention to detail. You will be given responsibility to independently lead this important project, so must be reliable and confident working independently.
