About the role:
Refill is City to Sea's national, practical drinking water campaign that aims to reduce plastic pollution by making refilling your bottle as easy, convenient and cheap as possible! Through our free rewards app and bright, friendly stickers in windows, Refill connects you to taps and fountains wherever you are. Launched in Bristol in 2015, the scheme has grown from a pilot into a national scheme with over 3000 refill points on our app and 17 live schemes across the UK. As the campaign grows, we're looking for four proactive Regional Coordinators to support the England-wide rollout of Refill in 2018/2019.
