JOIN OUR TEAM!
We’re looking for a brilliant full-time Consultant in Organizational / Behaviour Change!
As a communications and culture consultancy that is built around purpose, values and sustainability, every single project we deliver at Kin&Co makes the world a little bit happier and healthier – it’s why we come to work. We help companies find their purpose beyond profit and set of values, embed these in their strategy, culture and operations, then communicate transparently to the outside world.
Established in London (UK), Kin&Co has reached the first milestone for global expansion with its opening of the Canadian office in Toronto, Ontario. This means you’ll get the best of both worlds – the buzz and pace of a startup, with all the learnings and guidance from a well-established company in the UK. As a small company with big impact, Kin&Co is known for moving the needle on huge issues, through powerful, creative interventions. Our clients include leading tech and global giants TripAdvisor, Danone, CPA Canada, Grant Thornton, O2, Montreal Airport, and leading not-for-profits WWF, Joseph Rowntree Foundation, Conference Board of Canada, Crisis, and #ReuseRevolution pioneers (and fellow B Corp) KeepCup.
We are an extremely fast-paced company. We get stuff done. If you don’t like pressure, pace, ownership and the thrill of making exciting things happen on a daily basis, we’re not for you. At the same time, one of our core values is Stay Playful – although we’re busy, we put a big emphasis on fun and general wellbeing.
We are deeply, fire-in-belly passionate about creating positive social and environmental change – and at the same time, we are unapologetically commercial and expanding globally. We believe that doing well should be synonymous with doing good.
About the role

In some cases, you’ll be helping to redesign the way people work, or bring a company to rethink their supply chain or social impact. You’ll be applying organizational change using audience insights, facilitation and communication skills to really move the needle from the inside to create more purpose and values-driven organizations.
