Deadline: 31 Oct

Starting (training) date: 1. December 2022

We’re looking for two people to join the Other Nature team, for part-time 12h/week positions! Both will receive training as Sex Educator/Shop Assistant. One position will focus on working at the front of shop (helping customers, unpacking orders, operating the cash register, other retail-related tasks), while the other will also include processing orders from our online shop.

As we are now a worker’s collective, we are looking to hire team-oriented people who would be interested in becoming members of our Collective after a trial period. Being in our infancy as a collective, our working structure is still in development, and we warmly welcome those who are inspired and excited to help shaping it. There will be opportunities in the long term to take on more hours, as well as different tasks.We hope you’ll consider applying if you have a passion for sex education, working collaboratively, enjoy talking to people about sex all day long, are an extremely good listener, and also love to create nice displays, and clean!

We’re looking for someone who*:

• Has strong communication skills in both English and German, spoken and written.

• Is warm, friendly, and sensitive to the needs of others.

• Is self-reflective and can talk to people in a non-judgmental way.

• Has experience working within teams, especially collectives.

• Is open and receptive to feedback and continuing professional and team development.

• Has customer service experience.• Can work flexibly with our small team, and responds positively and creatively to multiple demands with conflicting timescales.

• Has a deep commitment to the mission and vision of Other Nature, and is familiar with the work we do.

*We ask people to please apply for this position only if they meet the criteria listed here. We genuinely appreciate that you want to work with us, but as our time and resources are limited, please wait until the right position for you opens up!Please also note that, although our approach to retail at Other Nature is quite different from more “sales-oriented” stores, there is still a lot of daily housekeeping needed to make the shop look nice and feel cozy. So if mopping floors and emptying trash bins isn’t your vibe, then this might not be the job for you.

These positions require availabilities during our opening hours (12-19:00 Mon-Sat), as well as Wednesday mornings for weekly team meetings (9-11:00, usually over zoom). You must be available for 1-2 Saturday shifts per month, and, ideally, have some flexibility during the week. The standard weekly schedule would be 2-3 shifts per week. Online shop packing hours can be very flexible during mornings/early afternoons, while shop shifts may be anytime between 12 - 19:30. Please indicate your availability on your application. If your availability does not match these shifts, you will not be considered for the position.

**

This is a salaried contract position, with a monthly gross (Brutto) starting income of 675 €, paid holidays (6 weeks/12-18 days per year) and paid overtime (optional). All health and social insurance benefits apply. If you’re a student or otherwise employed/insured, we’re also open to discussing other possible employment forms.

Other Nature understands that the inclusivity of our work is only as broad as the positionalities reflected in our team. We especially welcome applications from BIPoC, trans-fem, femme-presenting, working-class, non-university-educated folks, and members of groups who often encounter systemic barriers to employment. If there are ways in which you identify that you would like us to take into consideration, please let us know on your application.

To apply: Please send your CV and cover letter to iwannawork@other-nature.de by Oct. 31, 2022. Applicants selected for an interview will be contacted by Nov. 14th, and interviews will be held on Nov. 17-18. Because of our limited time resources, we’ll only be able to reply to those we invite for an interview: thanks for your understanding!
