What gets you out of bed in the morning?

If it's a delicious cup of coffee that's good for you and the farmers producing it, then this could be the job for you!

Cafédirect is a pioneering social enterprise working in partnership with smallholder farming organisations to deliver award-winning hot drinks to consumers through retail, online and wholesale channels.

In a phase of growth and development, an opportunity has arisen to join Cafédirect's Purpose and Sustainability team as an Impact Manager; to offer your expertise and leadership to successfully optimise the Cafédirect impact model and the delivery of the Cafédirect Gold Standard framework, which includes four pillars - customers, growers, environment, and business.

You will also have the opportunity to:

  • Innovate Cafédirect's impact data, processes, and systems to optimise Gold Standard KPIs to support annual delivery across all commitments.

  • Provide crucial data and insights to inform the orientation of producer, supplier, and customer development programmes that help those partners build a sustainable trading relationship with Cafédirect and address their challenges and opportunities.

  • Communicate the impact model and measurement of Gold Standard commitments and progress to all internal and external stakeholders, e.g. annual report, website, and other resources.

  • Lead on supporting change and coordination of the Purpose programme's projects and management of their inter-dependencies through the Gold Standard 2030 Roadmap.

As a purpose-led company, Cafédirect invests a proportion of its profits into Producers Direct. This UK charity works directly with farmers to improve sustainability and livelihoods right across the coffee-growing world. The charity is run by farmers for farmers, taking leadership and developing innovative solutions to the challenges they face.

As an impact professional, you will already have:

  • Strong experience in building and implementing sustainability data (qualitative and quantitative), metrics, monitoring, and evaluation.

  • The ability to effectively communicate learning, written and impactful visualisation of data.

  • In-depth experience in developing and maintaining programmes and project management skills.

  • Excellent Spanish written and oral communication skills.

  • Degree level or equivalent education.

Confident that you can add value but not 100% sure you 'tick every box'? There is no such thing as the perfect candidate. Cafédirect prides itself on growing the team with diverse professionals. So, however, you identify, and whatever experience you have, please apply if this is a role that excites you.
