This is an opportunity to join a growing team at the Global Distributors Collective (GDC). The GDC started in October 2018 and, since then, they have gone from strength to strength supporting their members – last mile distribution organisations – to sell life-changing products to low-income, remote or otherwise marginalised people across the world. Their ambition is to make last mile distribution the first priority.

Engaging with their members and partners sits at the core of everything they do; from delivering their innovation workstream and providing technical assistance directly to their members, to hosting learning and collaboration events and gathering/disseminating research and insights. In this role you will work closely with the Head of the GDC, GDC Project Manager and particularly the Communications and Impact Manager to help shape and deliver an ambitious agenda of communications activities, to support last mile distribution companies to save time, money and increase their impact at the last mile. You will also coordinate their member engagement work, providing you with an opportunity to liaise directly with, and learn about, socially-driven companies operating all across the world.

No two days working for the GDC are the same. They are a small, fun and fast-paced team looking forward to welcoming a new team member into the mix!
