Global Canopy is a data-driven not for profit that targets the market forces destroying nature. We do this by improving transparency and accountability. We provide innovative open-access data, clear metrics, and actionable insights to leading companies, financial institutions, governments and campaigning organisations worldwide. 

Supply chain transparency: Trase is a data-driven transparency initiative that revolutionises our understanding of the international trade and financing of agricultural commodities which drive tropical deforestation. Its unique supply chain mapping approach brings together disparate, publicly available data to connect consumer markets to deforestation and other impacts in producer countries.

Trase’s free online tools and actionable intelligence enable governments, companies, financial institutions and civil society organisations to take practical steps to address deforestation. Trase is jointly led by the Stockholm Environment Institute and Global Canopy, with many further partners and collaborators.

You will be part of a leading, multinational, multidisciplinary, and multilingual team of experts, delivering this exciting program in a way that is effective, manageable and fun! We value diversity, inclusivity and creativity at the core of what we do.

This role will lead the delivery of the Trase communication strategy over the next 5 year strategic period.

Working as part of the Impact team within Trase, alongside colleagues responsible for content production and those engaging directly with companies, governments and financial institutions, you will take responsibility for leading all aspects of public relations - press, media, events, promotion and publicity.

For success in this role, these things will matter the most: 

  • Writing - demonstrable experience of creating compelling and concise written pieces both from scratch and from detailed technical information, accurately and creatively.

  • Planning - demonstrable experience of creating communications plans for the release of new data sets, to share new insights, or in response to external events, to deliver on Trase’s priorities and strategic approach.

  • Engage and influence - demonstrable experience of developing and maintaining relationships with key people and organisations including journalists and partner organisations.

  • Decision-making - able to make sound tactical decisions on the right public relations approach to ensure our external communications work remains tightly aligned with our strategy for engagement and impact.

  • Innovative - able to bring new ideas and approaches to the table, think creatively and question assumptions.

At Global Canopy, we value diversity and inclusion. You can read our diversity statement on our website. We encourage applications from all backgrounds and are committed to having a team with a diverse set of skills, experiences and abilities. We are committed to reducing systemic barriers in our recruitment processes. 

Global Canopy works on issues of tropical deforestation. We are particularly interested in strengthening our team to include those with a background from forest regions such as Latin America and South East Asia. We welcome applications from people from these regions.

Global Canopy is an inclusive employer and accommodations will be made to allow anyone who requires additional support to apply for this role. Please get in touch with us if you require any additional support.
