Vacancy, Bilingual Communications Coordinator

by Stephanie Klotz on Feb 01, 2017

Are you passionate about sustainable fashion and looking for a new challenge? Then join the Germany-based team of C&A Foundation.

C&A Foundation is looking for a Bilingual (German/English) Communications Coordinator to complement our Impact & Communications team. Our ideal candidate has a passion for writing and a flair for social media that will help the foundation enter the German language market.

He/she will be responsible for collecting and translating information and stories in English and drafting written content in German, which will be rolled out through the foundation's communications channels. He/she will also be responsible for gathering insight from publicly available sources about sustainable fashion in German, so that we can understand our audiences and reach influencers. In addition, the Communications Coordinator will be responsible for managing the German social media channels of C&A Foundation, as well as the German website.

At C&A Foundation, we are working to transform the fashion industry. We provide financial support, expertise, and networks to enable brands, NGOs and other changemakers to make the fashion industry work better for every person it touches. Our work is focused on areas that we believe will have the biggest impact for people: accelerating organic cotton and other sustainable materials, improving working conditions, eradicating forced and child labour, fostering circular fashion, and strengthening communities. As a corporate foundation, we share the same heritage, values and approach to sustainability as the global retailer C&A. And we work closely together to find the best ways to drive change.
