The ocean is in danger, and we don't have much time to save it. We create inspired, motivated Ocean Activists everywhere, each one of us committed to protecting the ocean and all it makes possible. We shout loudly for the ocean, gathering the evidence and giving voice to the issues that hold leaders to account.

Today we are more than surfers. It’s about more than sewage. We’re here because of the ocean. Read on if you are ready to join us.

As the Education Administrator you will be responsible for engaging people in our work by developing and maintaining relationships with teachers and schools. You will oversee the procurement and delivery of education packs and manage data to track schools progress. This will need to be delivered at the highest administrative standard and always meeting SAS’s safeguarding and organisational policies.

We will provide:

  • Space and equipment to work in our recently refurbished office on the cliffs in St. Agnes, north Cornwall. Coastal walks, lunchtime swims and surfing is encouraged.
  • Flexibility, working around core hours of 10.30am to 3.30pm. Remote working options, with a current requirement to be in the office 2 days per week to maintain human contact and a feeling of team cohesion.
  • A salary within a band, which will be reviewed at least annually. Pay will increase through the band with length of service. Opportunities for promotion to more responsible roles in higher bands, as your role evolves or others become vacant.
  • 25 days of annual leave, increasing each January up to 28 days, plus Bank Holidays.

  • Access to free confidential advice from a qualified counsellor on any issues, through our Employee Assistance Programme

Diversity and inclusivity:

We want Ocean Activism to be open to everyone. A diverse voice is a more powerful voice. Diversity in our people brings new viewpoints and this drives debate and creativity, which is key to successful campaigning and an ability to engage new audiences. As such, we encourage applications from people who belong to groups which are often marginalised in society.
