Cherwell Collective announces their new project Waste Innovation Station Headquarters (WISH) with 4 part time vacancies
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has” - Margaret Mead
Cherwell Collective, CIC is happy to announce we are searching for ambitious individuals to help our partnership build an exciting future through our new project in Oxfordshire: Waste Innovation Station Headquarters (WISH).
What is WISH?
WISH is interactive, where each and every exhibit is made from waste, teaches us how to reduce waste, and informs about the carbon footprint of waste and therefore the massive help we give to our planet by making small changes in what and how we waste!
WISH will provide demonstrations as well as take home “DIY” kits to help people reduce waste at home, guidance on where and how to repair items, and ways to reduce consumption/demand for new production lines to take real climate action, now.
WISH is a vision of a brighter future, a “circular economy” focused on zero waste, where nothing is purchased new until absolutely all options for keeping items in circulation have been exhausted.
WISH is a partnership, reaching more than 50,000 people in Oxfordshire, designed to guide our community to a lowered carbon footprint through outreach and demonstration around reducing waste.
Would you like to help us make a WISH? We currently have 4 part time positions open:
Administrator - helps make WISH run smoothly day to day
Creative Director - designs and implements WISH exhibits
Compliance Officer - makes sure WISH is safe for our community
Evaluation Officer - measures the impact of WISH
