Who we are

The Ethical Fashion Forum is the industry body for sustainable fashion.  We engage with a network of up to 55,000 globally through our SOURCE platform, which includes online trade events, intelligence platform and annual Summit.  Our network spans the supply chain, from suppliers and factories to colleges, designers, brands and retailers large and small, from the mountains of Nepal to the plains of Patagonia, from Paris, to New York to Niarobi, to Beijing.  It includes thousands of pioneering entrepreneurs and businesses who are changing lives through fashion all over the world. 

We are addressing big challenges - the fashion industry is the 2nd most polluting industry in the world and over half of global apparel brands are still doing nothing to ensure living wages.  Our mission is to empower fashion business to be ethical, sustainable and profitable.  Our vision is that sustainable business becomes the rule rather than the exception to it, reducing global poverty and reversing the environmental impact of industry. 

This is an exciting point in the work of the Ethical Fashion Forum as we bring in investment for the next phase of our SOURCE platform.  We are streamlining the platform and scaling up- with the goal of reaching 2.5 million users within 5 years.

We are looking for a dynamic marketing professional to help us to maximise our global impact.

The marketing and comms role includes helping to grow and deepen our network, increase engagement with our events and online platform, increase sales, build and manage partnerships, and co-ordinate our outreach.

At least 2-5 years experience in a marketing role 
Experience of building partnerships and effective campaign development
Experience of building a brand across multiple channels
The ability to write compelling copy 
A positive, can do attitude
A passion for what we do
