To advertise a job

Ethical Job Seeker's mission is to support the growth of ethically minded business through the promotion of job opportunities and investment in environmental and social campaigns. There are many organisations out there who are moving towards a more ethical and sustainable model but are not there yet. We are all about driving change, if the role in the organisation has a clear positive environmental or social impact then we would prefer to advertise it.  These organisations are limited only to posting roles that clearly contribute to improving the environment or society for example a sustainability manager or supply chain professional with a remit for ethical sourcing.

We do not advertise organisations or jobs that derive income from, gambling, pornography, tobacco, weapons industries and the mining/extraction of conflict minerals and fossil fuels.
