18 Apr Business Development Exec / Sustainability Consultant
An excellent opportunity has arisen for a commercially minded individual who knows the language of sustainability. Whilst this is predominantly a business development role where you will be owning the business development function in a small but perfectly formed business, we are not looking for someone who is too “salesy”.
This role would suit someone who has had exposure to sustainability either though their education and ideally also through their experience. You might have gained some experience in sustainability working in a consultancy or perhaps you’ve worked in an in-house sustainability or CSR role? What is vital is that you have an appetite to work in a commercial role and, in an ideal world, you will benefit from some business development or commercial experience – you will need to appreciate the importance of a lead or prospect never being dropped. You will probably be an extrovert, happy to work the room at conferences and breakfast events – a people person, polished but humble.
You will join a company that works with large corporations and helps them to manage their sustainability by getting a handle on their data across areas such as carbon, waste, water and energy. You will join a small, friendly and social team that is increasingly working internationally.
