As a member of the Supply Chain team at Fair Trade USA, you will have one of the most meaningful, rewarding, and impactful jobs in the world of social enterprise!

The Specialist will work with tea farmers and workers, particularly in Asia, understanding how Fair Trade impacts their lives and working with industry to ensure the integrity of our programs. The Specialist will be the go to resource on what is it like to work on a tea garden, what issues farmers and workers face, and what Fair Trade does to help.
