About Do Nation:

Do Nation is a small organisation aiming to have a big impact. We’re on a mission to help millions of people to take meaningful climate action, while helping them to form healthy, environmentally friendly habits, both at home and at work. We do this through an online platform where anyone can either make a pledge or run a campaign to raise pledges - pledges to do things like cycling to work, wasting less food, or using reusable coffee cups.

Over the last few years, demand for our services has increased rapidly, leading to a customer base ranging from innocent drinks to The EU; The Earthshot Prize to Siemens Plc. Earlier this year we partnered with Count Us In, an ambitious global project aiming to encourage 1 billion people to take climate action by 2030, which is further fuelling demand for Do Nation.

We’re a small, nimble, and committed team, scattered across the UK and France. We strongly believe in the potential of our unique model to create a wide scale, meaningful impact on one of the most important issues of our time, and we’re hungry to deliver on that.

This is an unusual opportunity to join a small founding team at an exciting stage of rapid but organic and customer-fuelled growth. While we are commercially focused, social impact is the fuel that drives us - and as such, we are proud to be a certified B Corp. We have an attractive employee benefits package, including training budgets, volunteering days, and slow travel policies. We’re a fully remote team working across England, Scotland and France.

A note on diversity:

At Do Nation, we value diversity - of opinion, ethnicity, gender, religion, disability. and background amongst others. Given we’re all about engaging the population at large, it’s particularly important that our team understands and reflects the diversity of the population as far as is possible given our tiny size. We encourage applications from all corners of society, and are committed to building a culture of inclusion throughout the business.
