We’re a social enterprise with an international team that works to accelerate the adoption of the circular economy. We’re a rapidly growing start-up and our goal is to engage governments, cities, businesses and citizens in the work that we do.

We launched our new brand in early 2016, and you have the opportunity of helping us build it globally. We rely on sleek visual representations to communicate circularity to a wide range of actors. Philips, G-Star Raw, Heineken, ABN Amro are only a few of our 47+ members.

This is a part-time or full-time role, depending on your availability. We offer a challenge for a passionate person that loves to learn and take up responsibilities in a dynamic but demanding environment. We will coach you to put your skills and ideas to work.

Who you are

A multi-talented and highly adaptable designer who wants to have an impact on the world.

  • Great communication skills in English (Dutch is a plus, but not necessary)

  • The ability to adhere to deadlines and work within constraints

  • The ability to think outside the box to offer new solutions

Your job at CE

We need you to support the Circle Economy core and design teams. We map and illustrate information (reports) and flows (charts), to communicate circularity on a systemic level to our partners, community and the general audience. You’ll be shadowing our two senior designers.

Your key responsibility is to help develop:

  • Infographics (data viz, illustration) and report layouts

  • Interfaces for our web apps and tools

  • Communication materials (brochures, presentations, posters…)

  • Processes and templates to automate and improve design workflows

  • Our brand identity

We offer €400 gross per month based on a full time employment and can provide a travel stipend as well, if necessary. We would like you to begin asap for at least 3 days a week and a minimum of 3 months.
