Volunteer at a creative social enterprise

at Hopeful Traders in London

About Hopeful Traders

Hopeful Traders is a social enterprise and clothing brand that works with and supports people affected by homelessness and mental illness. We collaborate with individuals affected by these issues on designs for apparel and lifestyle products. Hopeful Traders produces and sells these products and shares profits with our collaborators and charities that they choose.

About The Role

In 2018 we are planning on widening our audience and distribution channels. To do this we need personnel who can help build and execute plans in the following areas:

marketing, communications and social media
connecting and distributing retail partners
coordinating volunteers at our street market stalls
applying for funding for community projects
ecommerce development
The exact role you perform will be heavily based on your skills and what you can do for the brand. This is definitely not a glorified coffee maker position; you will be working directly alongside the companies founder (me/Charlie Wright) on a variety of projects, over which you could have a lot of influence.

To begin with the roles are unpaid (apart from £10 a day for expenses) but I genuinely want to be able to pay people for what they put in to the work. There is potential for this to become a paid role.

About You

Like every job listing, we are looking for someone who is proactive, works well with other people and passionate about our mission.

There are no specific requirements in terms of skills and experience but the experience in the following areas could help your application:

working at a socially motivated organization


Job Type: Unpaid volunteer with potential to progress to more formal role

Time Commitment: At least one day a week (flexible)

Start Date: ASAP

Duration: At least 6 weeks (flexible)

Location: Central London (near Liverpool Street). Work could be done remotely, but it is preferred that the candidate is available to be in the office every couple of weeks.

Expenses: £10 per day spent at the office


Please send a CV and a covering letter with a little about what you would like to get from this role and what you can do for Hopeful Traders, to info@hopefultraders.com.
