Position: Marketing Consultant (Marketing Generalist)
Organization: Transition Toronto
Location: based in Toronto, Ontario. Candidate can be from anywhere in Canada

TreeMobile is a Transition Toronto project that provides affordable food-bearing trees and plants to individuals in order to increase the environmental and local food sustainability in the communities it serves.

TreeMobile requires consultation with a Marketing Generalist who can use their professional experience to produce a marketing plan that will increase sales. TreeMobile is a non-profit project that is executed by volunteers and has made customers aware of its products through various means over its 10 years of successful operation. In order for TreeMobile to increase its impact, the means of awareness raising needs to be better coordinated, and volunteers need to be assured that the time they put into marketing efforts are generating results. The first step in improving TreeMobile's marketing is consultation with an individual who is experienced in marketing community projects so that a results-oriented plan for efficient marketing can be put in place.
