Communications and Special Projects Fellow (Peru)
Nisolo means not alone.
We are a team of makers, doers, and storytellers working together to facilitate a healthy connection between consumers and producers in the global marketplace. As consumers, we are not alone in the world. We recognize that our small choices have a big impact somewhere else. As producers, we are not alone. We enable access to the global market and fair compensation for our work. At Nisolo, we view our social impact in two ways: game changing and life changing.
As our full-time Communications and Special Projects Fellow in our factory in Trujillo, Peru, you will have the opportunity to gain exposure to content creation for our marketing team (photo, video, writing), international communications and information systems. You will tune up your Spanish language skills and gain an understanding of day-to-day operations, both from the factory floor and from our Nashville office and showroom. We are a dynamic, high-growth organization so assignments are flexible and adapted to the organization’s needs as well as the candidate’s strengths.
