Job Description

Could you be DEAL's Cities & Regions Lead?

Do you want to help create a world in which people and planet thrive in balance?

Are you ready to lead DEAL’s work with cities and regions that want to turn the ideas of Doughnut Economics into transformative practice?

If yes, we’d love to hear from you!

Doughnut Economics Action Lab (DEAL) is an organization working with innovative cities, community groups, teachers and businesses worldwide to co-create and spread brilliant tools and resources that turn the ideas of Doughnut Economics into transformative action.

We are seeking an enthusiastic and experienced Cities & Regions Lead to lead DEAL’s engagement with cities, municipalities and other place-based administrations that are interested in putting Doughnut Economics into practice in their own context.

You’ll be the first point of contact with such actors and their local partners, working with them to create and apply tools and methodologies that help to bring about place-based transformation that is regenerative and distributive by design.

Application Process

Thank you for your interest in working with DEAL.

Please read the full job description and then you can begin the process by clicking on the yellow button on the top right.

Shortlisted candidates will be asked to prepare an exercise and do a first interview on 12th, 13th or 14th May.

The two final candidates will be asked to take part in a team session and do a second interview on 19th or 20th May, for an early June / July start date. Interviews will take place via Zoom.

People of all nationalities, race, sex, religion, disability, sexual orientation and identity are welcome at Doughnut Economics Action Lab and we especially encourage applications from people of colour, women, LGBTQ+ people, people with disabilities, and people who have experienced other forms of exclusion or marginalisation.

We are welcoming applications from outside the UK, even during the uncertainty of Brexit, because we are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive team. At the same time, we are still building up our capacity to work as an international team, and so we are offering this as a remote-working role based within -1/+3 hours of Universal Coordinated Time (UTC). As we learn and evolve as a team, our intention is to expand this range globally in future recruitments.

I have another question, how can I get in touch?

Unfortunately we do not have capacity to engage in extended conservations about the role, however if you have any specific questions that aren’t covered here, in the job description, or in DEAL’s wider FAQ please send them to
