About you

You will be excited by the opportunity to play an important role in growing the organisation.

The role would be ideal for someone who is a self-starter and is happy to work remotely and flexibly. This is a remote position but you should be based in the UK. As an equal opportunity employer, The Gecko Project values diversity and continuously strives to maintain an inclusive and equitable workplace.
