We’re hiring a Transparency Coordinator for the Provenance x Cult Beauty partnership in beauty and wellness!

Provenance is using tech to power the transparency movement – helping brands bring the social & environmental impact behind products and their supply chains to shoppers. We exist to enable a more conscious, fair, and low-impact future for commerce. 

Cult Beauty is a leading global online beauty retailer – on a mission to be the world’s most trusted in the industry. This role will be employed by Provenance and spend 50% of time working with Provenance’s partner in transparency for beauty and wellness – Cult Beauty. This 50/50 split arrangement will last for a minimum of 12 months. 

As a Transparency Coordinator, you are passionate about working with an exciting community of beauty and wellness brands – some of which are leaders in enabling more sustainable products. You have a passion for beauty,  social impact and sustainability, and are motivated to help protect shoppers from false claims aka “greenwash”.  

You are comfortable working directly with various client stakeholders, across departments and will play a key role in getting them set up within the Provenance platform. Through this client-facing role, you will also help educate and inspire brands to think about becoming more transparent and purpose driven to enable long-term growth that is good for business, people & planet. 

 

The role

Working as an Beauty Transparency Coordinator at Provenance, you will:

  • Lead the day-to-day interaction with our retail customers, primarily with our partnership with Cult Beauty. You are accountable to onboard the clients brands onto our beauty transparency platform. Success will be a significant increase of brands onboard, expansion of brand’s products as well as maturing of beauty transparency Proof Points.
  • Lead the day-to-day engagement with a range of consumer brands, with an initial focus on the beauty industry. You will be liaising with the clients’ brands, representing the clients and Provenance tone of voice.
  • Support brands through the education and onboarding process
  • Lead expansion to other Provenance beauty platform clients. Research and propose potential clients, manage introductions and lead on the transparency conversation.
  • Manage multiple clients to ensure they get ongoing success from the Provenance platform, driving more sustainable behaviour and hence more transparency
