Ecommerce – Marketing & Content

Born out of our love of travel, Paper High began as a round-the-world trip. An unexpected change in destination, an extended stay in Kathmandu, and a chance meeting with a paper maker sowed the seed of an exciting business idea. Since 2002, we have been selling Fair Trade products and unusual eco-friendly, ethical gifts, all of which are handmade in India, Sri Lanka and Nepal.   

 We have an exciting opportunity for a marketing graduate with some work experience or someone who has more extensive work experience within marketing in an ecommerce background to join our small but mighty ecommerce team.
