About Loam

At Loam, we have the earth in our hands. As a team of scientists, farmers and entrepreneurs, we are on a mission to improve the world’s farmland and address climate change. We are developing microbial technology to remove CO2 from the atmosphere and build carbon in agricultural soils. We help farming businesses prosper by boosting yield and soil health and enabling access to carbon markets.

As a start-up with ambitious founders and investors, our work is fast-paced and multidimensional. We foster a supportive and diverse workplace, where every team member is encouraged to learn and grow beyond their area of expertise. Founded in New South Wales, Australia, we have offices across The United States, Canada and Australia.

While everyone at Loam is working in different roles, we all have one job: to remove CO2 from the atmosphere and store it stably in farmer’s soils.

About the Role

At Loam, we have huge climate change ambitions, and your role will see you helping us continue to shape what is already a compelling story, driving global awareness of both our technology and the amazing potential microbes have to address the climate crisis. As Loam's Corporate Affairs Manager, you will become the “go-to” for Loam’s internal content development and support the team to tell not only Loam’s story but their own professional stories. You will also be working closely with the full scope of our team, from our microbiologists and soil scientists to our commercial team and executive board.

In summary, this role is integral to communicating the impact that Loam will have on agriculture and climate change, and position the agricultural industry and farmers as leaders in climate action.
