Anything But Plastic Is hiring!
If you want a job with flexible hours that also makes you feel like a hero helping to save the world by ridding the earth of plastic pollution, then look no further! …Well you may want to read the rest of the job ad, but I’m sure you are hooked already. This is the job for you, I know it.
Anything But Plastic you say? What’s that?
Anything But Plastic is a growing online business based on Murano Street in Glasgow that brings together plastic-free alternatives to everyday items and provides a platform of convenience for the average consumer to purchase these goods. Cutting down on plastic should not have to be hard, inconvenient or time consuming. With ABP I’m striving to remove these obstacles and bring about positive change.

Alright then, what’s the job?
Helping to pack up orders mainly, as demand is growing for plastic-free products keeping me very busy! A bit of admin type work and social media marketing as well once you’ve got packing down pat. If you enjoy talking to likeminded people about this kind of stuff there’ll be opportunities to help me out with market stalls too.
If you are also interested in campaigning, then you can help me to run the sadly neglected ‘Plastic Free Glasgow’ campaign (I’ve had too many orders to give it it’s due right now!) as part of the Plastic Free Scotland campaign network. I may also ask you to help out with various research things too, as I like to know everything.
Candidates must have an all-consuming passion for saving the environment (…or a mild interest at least), a righteous fury concerning the problems of plastic pollution (although a slight indignation will do) and… various other skills. Go on, impress me.
Retail experience would be useful but not necessary. (Everyone has to start somewhere and it’s really not that difficult). Enthusiasm and willingness to learn may be substituted for this.
Oh and you must live in Glasgow…or commuting distance of Glasgow if you are super keen but a bit further out.
Why should you want to work for ABP?
Pros: Ridding the world of the scourge that is single use plastic, helping people make eco-conscious choices and an inside glow of smug satisfaction knowing that what you are doing is making a difference. This isn’t just retail therapy, it’s plastic rehab for those wanting to help cure humanity of our harmful addiction to disposable plastics.
Cons: You have to put up with me, sorry. If you don’t like ideas being bounced off you or are unable to offer emotional support for my insanity/entrepreneurial zeal, then this may not be for you. I’m not that bad though, honest.
Pay - £8 an hour
Minimum of 5 hours per week for now (perfect if you have other commitments). You’ll need to be able to work weekdays, but exact days and times can be agreed on to fit around you. ABP likes zero waste not zero hours contracts, let’s make job flexibility fun not forced.
Potential for more hours as the business grows.
How do I apply?
Please send me a song and dance explaining why you should get the job. (Kidding!) Send a CV or some form of explanation as to why you want to work for ABP as well as a reference, (character or professional, your choice), so that I know you are who you say you are. If you are available to start immediately that would be excellent.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to apply. If you get through round one I’ll contact you so we can meet up for a chat …No stressful interview situations - I promise 😊
The role will stay open until I find the right person, so there is no closing date, but I need help soon so get cracking with your application and send it in to me asap.
Let the applications commence!
