The Wellbeing Economy Alliance (WEAll) is a global collaboration of organisations, alliances, movements and individuals formed in 2018. We work together to change the economic system so it delivers human and ecological wellbeing. WEAll’s strategy consists of the following three key components: narratives, knowledge and power bases.
Critically, change needed will not be brought about by any single entity on its own. It requires collaboration and inspiration, sharing and co-creation. Hence the creation of new powerbases in the form of a citizens’ movement, place-based hubs and thematic clusters (e.g. the Wellbeing Economy Governments – WEGo – partnership) at the heart of WEAll’s strategy. These powerbases need to be fed both by bringing together a coherent body of existing and new wellbeing economy theory and practice as well as a compelling positive new economic narrative.
What we offer:
An opportunity to work with a highly motivated team committed to accelerating economic system change. A team with a set of dedicated values: Togetherness, Care, Honesty, Equality and Passion. This is WEAll’s core ‘amplification’ (Amp) team.
The Knowledge Manager position offers the opportunity to work on economic systems change policy areas alongside professionals worldwide recognised as experts in the field of economic system change.
Contract type: 10-month self-employed contract with the intention to renew – funding dependent.
Remuneration: £3,250 to £3,750 per month dependent on experience. This figure is inclusive of all taxes for which the contractor will be responsible.
Hours of work: Full time role with the possibility of some international travel. The nature of this role is that flexibility in hours is both required by the role (for example, there will be some evening and weekend work) but also offered by WEAll.
Location: While we encourage applications from anywhere in the world (working from home), we understand and appreciate the value of human connection. As such, our preference is to recruit for a person to be based in either Glasgow [Scotland] or Madrid [Spain]. We have members of the Amp team based in both locations. In Glasgow, we can provide access to a co-working space, in Madrid it would be a home working scenario.
What we are looking for:
We are looking for an experienced, highly motivated individual that has a passion for policy work. The role has two foci. Firstly, to support WEAll to deliver a large project focussed on the development of resilience and just transition policies in a number of regions around the world. Secondly, to support the synthesis and dissemination of the wellbeing economy knowledge base in a clear, accessible way.
This role will be an important member of the Amp team and as such will be expected to contribute to overall WEAll activities such as members calls, organisational strategy development, member promotion, and so on.
Key activities and deliverables:
Resilience and Just Transition Policy project
Synthesise existing knowledge
Host spaces for policy innovation
Create and promote policy papers
Knowledge synthesis project
• Support the Organisation and Projects Lead (within the Amp team) to develop the concept of WEAll Toolbox intiative and promote a proposal amongst funders.
