AMMA is a social enterprise on a mission to provide training and employment to mothers and young women through sustainable jobs within the textile industry. We aim to be a model for new methods of rural textile production. Creating design-led products that respond to the regional environment by using dyes that are 100% derived from plants. With a strong focus on developing a circular economy, reducing waste by committing to small batch handmade production and dyeing products to meet demand.
Based in Sri Lanka’s highest town, we employ women who live in and around Sri Lanka’s tea estates.
AMMA was started to provide flexible, fairly paid employment within an area that commonly sees women moving to the Middle East for work, leaving both themselves and their children vulnerable to abuse. Operating as a social enterprise in partnership with Sri Lankan and UK-based NGO Tea Leaf Trust, AMMA commits to reinvesting profits back into the local community.
We are looking for a Office Manager to work alongside the Founder and Operations Manager to deliver our new strategy at an exciting time of growth. Our main priority is that you have a skillset, passion and vision for social impact within the community that we work and that you champion our values of empowerment, equality and job creation.
Closing date: 1st April 2019, 5pm Sri Lankan time
