Join Our Team:

The Circular Textiles Foundation is looking for a Circular Projects Associate who will be responsible for supporting the delivery of our projects and marketing plan, helping the team to deliver in a way which enables us to stay true to our mission.

We are looking for a self-motivated, driven, open-minded individual to join us at this exciting time of growth. This opportunity is ideal for someone who will relish the challenge of working with a dynamic, young organisation with an ambitious vision.

You find it easy to communicate verbally, and in writing, and enjoy building collaborative relationships. You will be highly organised with strong project management and time management skills. You must be able to demonstrate a genuine interest in our mission to ensure that clothing is recyclable by design.

In this role you will have the opportunity to learn and provide support across the team and all aspects of the business – with a focus on social media, marketing, and client project delivery – an ideal opportunity for someone looking to get experience in this space, but not quite sure where they want to start!

Who are we?

The Circular Textiles Foundation is an innovation design agency, we are experts at closing the loop in sustainable fashion, working with brands, manufacturers, and fibre to fibre recyclers to ensure that clothing is designed ‘with the end in mind’. We believe in making a positive impact on the world by supporting brands to create circular products – that can be recycled and made into new textiles at the end of use – tackling climate change whilst addressing important social needs.

We are a small, enthusiastic team making a real impact; we work with many brands ranging from large high street players to small, niche organisations. This is a unique opportunity to learn about Circular Design Principles; and to be part of a growing organisation working at the forefront of circular fashion.
