DIVISION/TEAM: Pricing Unit – Standards & Pricing
REPORTS TO: Head of Pricing
Fairtrade is an alternative approach to conventional trade and is based on a partnership between producers and consumers. Fairtrade offers producers a better deal and improved terms of trade. This allows them the opportunity to improve their lives and plan for their future. Fairtrade offers consumers a powerful way to reduce poverty through their everyday shopping.
Fairtrade International is the international non-profit, multi stakeholder body that is responsible for the strategic direction of Fairtrade, sets Fairtrade standards and supports producers. The Standard & Pricing Unit (S&P) seeks to bring social, economic and environmental benefits to producers and workers and to empower them to address the challenges of poverty and to achieve sustainable livelihoods. We do this through developing, monitoring and reviewing Fairtrade Standards and Prices, including Fairtrade Minimum Prices and Fairtrade Premiums. The S&P also provides standard and pricing support services, such as communication, guidance and training on Fairtrade Standards, Minimum Prices and Premiums.
The post holder will lead the development and management of Fairtrade standards and price setting projects mainly focused in T2/3 products and supporting Senior pricing managers and pricing work related to Fairtrade strategy such as Living Income (LI) and Living Wage (LW).
