Job Description


Hubbub is an environmental charity. Our vision is to create a world where everyone is an environmentalist, (whether they realise it or not). We inspire ways of living that are good for the environment, by designing campaigns that make environmental action desirable. We disrupt the status quo to raise awareness, nudge behaviours and shape systems. We do this with knowledge and playfulness... and we won’t make you feel bad.  

We are looking for someone to support our award-winning Community Calling project as well as future community-based work. 

Community Calling is a smartphone redistribution initiative whereby individuals and businesses donate unwanted smartphones which are then rehomed with digitally excluded people. We tackle the issues of e-waste and digital exclusion in one. The project runs nationwide and has so far seen the redistribution of over 10,000 smartphones, accompanied by free data from Virgin Media O2 via the National Databank.  

We are looking for someone with impeccable administration skills and strong systems -thinking to support the creation of a slick user experience for those wanting to donate devices, those requesting devices to support digitally excluded individuals, and those wanting to support the project in some way.
