HOW WE WORK
Open World Alliance is a growing evolutionary (Teal) organisation inspired by Holocratic principles. We are working on creating a workplace that operates through horizontal governance decision-making processes and where everyone is trusted to take ownership of their work and responsibilities.
Our culture aspires to be welcoming, friendly and co-operative, where team members are empowered and supported through open and transparent communication, radical candour and where everyone can bring their authentic selves to work - with egos left squarely at the door! As a fast-growing, hard-working start-up, many of us wear several hats and help out where we can to ensure we deliver on point!
We’re a diverse hands-on bunch looking for pragmatic, productive and pro-active team members who share a like-minded vision to help us deliver stellar work and realize OWA's greater objectives.
OWA is an equal opportunity organisation committed to creating an inclusive environment with people of different backgrounds and experiences. We welcome diversity in age, gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability etc. and strongly encourage folks from marginalized and under-represented backgrounds to apply. We value our team members for who they are and truly believe these differences make us better and enable us to grow and thrive as an organisation and team.
We only assess applications on ability and fit for the role. Please get in touch if you'd like to discuss any adjustments you might need to ensure a level playing field during the recruitment process.
