Global Creative Operations Associate

We are people against dirty® (PAD), and we've always done things differently. We are fearless thinkers, mad scientists and adventurous designers who believe that making soap leads to brave ideas, bold inventions and beautiful bubbles.

We are small, but we have big plans to make the world a cleaner, greener, more colorful place. And we invite everyone to join us as we pioneer a future where doing business is doing good for all.

PAD was born out of the coming together in 2012 of two iconic, eco-pioneering cleaning brands, Ecover® from Europe and method® from the USA. PAD is dedicated to inspiring generations of happy, healthy households through an outstanding portfolio of non-toxic products.  We are 100% owned by a European based family committed to the long term success of the world's most innovative green cleaning company. As an organization, PAD is very fast paced, entrepreneurial, non-hierarchical and solutions focused…combining a huge sense of ambition with love and care for our consumers (or in PAD-speak, advocates), the environment and our people alike. Our company name is our mission—and it's bold and challenging. We are a values led business in every sense, caring as much about the "how" every bit as much as the "what".  Our people are our secret sauce, the most significant element of delivering a sustainable competitive advantage.
