Better Cotton is now seeking an Events Coordinator to support the preparation and execution of our Programme Partner Meeting, the Better Cotton Conference and other internal and external events.

This is an excellent opportunity for anyone aspiring for a career in the sustainability sector to build his or her skills and experience in international event planning and coordination as well as in working in a fast-paced global multicultural not-for-profit.

The Better Cotton Conference is an annual event that welcomes the entire cotton sector to come together, providing an opportunity to connect, network and collaborate with a diverse community of changemakers along the cotton value chain. The conference gives a unique opportunity to engage in forward-thinking debates with global leaders and field-level experts and creates an environment where the challenges of sustainable cotton can be explored and navigated through dynamic discussion. In 2022, after a 3-year hiatus due to the pandemic, Better Cotton hosted a two-day hybrid conference in Sweden, bringing together 180 people in-person and 290 online.

The Programme Partner Meeting is designed to bring key stakeholders together, who are responsible for executing the Better Cotton Standard at the field level. The meeting focuses on sharing best practices in implementing the Better Cotton Standard and discussing solutions to implementation challenges faced in the field. The next Programme Partner Meeting is due to take place in Thailand in February 2023, bringing together 130 people in-person.

The Event Coordinator would spend 50% of her/his time on each event, supporting heavily on the logistical aspects and reporting to the Events Manager with matrix management from the Capacity Building Manager. You will receive training and deliver work in coordination with global staff based across the world. This challenging role offers excellent opportunities for personal and professional development, together with a competitive benefits package.
