CLOSED – Communications Manager

About the role

At Too Good To Go, we have a big Mission: To inspire and empower everyone to fight food waste together.

Why? Because 40% of all food produced in the world is wasted. And that has a huge impact on the health of our planet. Did you know that 10% of greenhouse gas emissions come from food waste alone?

Launched in 2016, Too Good To Go is a certified B-Corporation that has helped its growing community of over 78 million registered users in 17 countries connect with more than 189,000 associated businesses and save more than 224 million meals from going to waste. As a team, we are incredibly proud of this, but we know that there’s still a lot more to do.

Today, Too Good To Go helps  people to save 3 meals per second… While 40,000 are still going to waste. We are expanding our team to really increase our impact. And that’s where you come in:

We’re looking for an exceptional Communications Manager in Copenhagen, Denmark, to join the global Comms team at Too Good To Go.

The role:

You will be part of a global Comms team that works every day to tell the incredible story of Too Good To Go. To contribute to that goal, you’ll have to build the necessary tactics, campaigns, processes and assets to share the right information, to the right audiences, through the right channels at the right times, in the right way.

At Too Good To Go we are proud to be making a positive impact in our world, led by our  colleagues, and together with our millions of users and hundreds of thousands of partnered businesses. For this reason, the vision we have for our Communications efforts is that they can be the perfect match for our business and we can inspire more people every day to fight food waste together.

 

Your role:

Communications at Too Good To Go is a business-critical function that keeps us connected with our community and also helps the organisation adapt, grow and deliver an even bigger positive impact.

In this role, you will report directly to Linda Almstedt, Senior PR Manager for North Europe, with a dotted line to the VP of Global Comms, and collaborate with colleagues across 17 markets in Europe and America.

The ideal candidate has exceptional skills in written, verbal and visual communications. Experience organising events and supporting senior leaders with corporate communications is a big plus.

The ideal candidate can handle complex stakeholder environments and is a master at building great relationships. The ability to combine a strategic vision with a willingness to roll up our sleeves when necessary will be essential.

We are looking for a great mix between a world-class professional and a compassionate individual, who embraces diversity and seeks success through active collaboration.
