The role of the researcher brings following responsibilities:
You would help RR team carry out consultation projects to large fashion brands and textile suppliers to help them develop circular economy strategy on corporate level. It’s a bit similar to market research for policy support but on global scale.
Your mission is to deep dive in market overviews, data and research findings available online and offline, carry out interviews, gather knowledge from RR team, etc to put together analytical market reports on production waste from textile industry reaching next use cases and the potential developments of the market (e.g. in-depth PESTLE analysis on target countries).
You are excellent at the same time in conducting interviews, finding information that none can find and turning that into easily readable and well structed and illustrated reports on the findings.
- In addition to reports for our clients, you’ll be creating content for our blog, develop thought leadership articles with us and help us build the content for online knowledge sharing.
It can be a rather long learning curve to get to know the topic inside out, if circular economy and fashion industry are new for you.
We work on global scale with a small team in an area that is rather informal and not researched well, so we need to be very innovative how we find access to information.
Good analytical skills, experience with carrying out both quantitative and qualitative research studies.
Great skills to write short, meaningful and catchy text, develop visual illustrations to pass forward key messages
Great English skills both speaking and writing
Skills nice to have
Network in global media regarding sustainability topics that we could involve to spread our message
Experience with building social media presence for a company
Our team is all very passionate about sustainability and circular economy. We’ve learned to be “rosily persistent” because we know what needs to be done, we have a great plan and strategy but we need to go through many walls, barriers and road-blocks to push things forward in a smart way and turn sustainability into a profitable business case so that the global market can function in a better way. We need to look at the global scale and think big because the planet doesn’t function based on country borders. If you believe that describes you as well, we welcome you to join our journey!For now, this job opening comes with a fixed timeline of 4 months. The possibility to continue working with RR or if it is going to be full-time or part-time job will be confirmed in 3 months from now.
