O My Bag

Hi there! Are you ready to start on a journey with a purpose? Are you mission and data-driven, not afraid of change, willing to go the extra mile, and do you have a can-do attitude? Most importantly, do you thrive at a small, fun, international, and growing company, with ambitious goals? Then we are looking for you!

As O My Bag’s Sustainability Superhero, here’s how you’ll make a difference:

  • You’ll put our ambitious sustainability plan into action, constantly tweaking it to be even better and staying ahead of the curve. You translate recent developments, such as upcoming legislation and digital traceability platforms, into actions, whilst ensuring a frontrunner position in sustainable fashion.
  • You work directly with our producers in Kolkata  on guaranteeing traceability throughout our supply chain, managing certifications, improving working conditions through our annual worker surveys, and organizing skills and gender equality training and championing fair wages.
  • Ever dreamt of turning 1% into a wave of change ? As the mastermind behind our 1% Giving Back projects you’ll oversee the women empowerment and education projects we already support, making sure they grow bigger and better, and you’ll think of new ways to ensure we’ll have positively touched the lives of 100.000 people by 2030.
  • You reduce O My Bag’s environmental footprint by crunching numbers to pinpoint areas for improvement and turn these into action. You join forces with external partners to research and implement strategies for both minimizing carbon footprint and in- and offsetting initiatives.
  • You work hand in hand with our production team to develop our Preferred Materials Matrix and source cutting-edge sustainable materials for product lines.
  • At O My Bag, we wear our B Corp badge with pride ✨. As our Sustainability Manager, you’re the torchbearer of our mission to continually better our business practices and ensure we’re not just a part of the B Corp community, but an active, thriving member.
  • You’ll be our resident sustainability guru, you’ll keep our team in the know about all our ground-breaking endeavors. You know how to inspire and engage people within the company and beyond.
  • Spreading the word is key! You’ll team up with our marketing team to tell the world about our bold sustainability initiatives. As the face of O My Bag’s impact, you’ll be our ambassador both inside and out, weaving our story into every interaction, creating compelling reports, and igniting enthusiasm for our mission.

Some of the projects you’ll be working on this year:

  • Extend our Living Wage initiative to beyond our direct reach: Boost the involvement of other clients in closing the Living Wage gap.
  • We’re in the midst of our B Corp recertification. All the paperwork is done, and in Q3 it’s time for the interviews. The most exciting part…We’re not just aiming to maintain, we’ve got some bold plans for improvement !
