We’re looking for a sustainability hot shot to spearhead our ongoing efforts to drive quality and environmental awareness in everything we do. We’re a proud industry leader on sustainability issues, but we know we can always be greener, so if you’re the person who can help us achieve that, read on…
You’ll be the go-to sustainability expert in the agency, working closely with stakeholders across the entire business, helping to drive standards, develop and test strategy and best practice, train colleagues on procedures and new legislation.
This is a new role within our operations team, and you’ll help ensure the business operates in line with ISO standards – ISO9001, ISO14001 and ISO20121. ISO training will be provided.
There’ll be research, monitoring, data gathering and reporting. You’ll help us keep our core processes and sustainability criteria up to date. And we’ll need you to help us ensure our partners and suppliers meet those criteria too.
You’ll have been working in a similar role for at least two years. And you’re going to need a working knowledge of the events industry and the complex sustainability challenges we face across our supply chains. Maybe you’ve worked in an agency before, which would be helpful, but not imperative.
What is important is your experience working across an organisation to drive standards and implement sustainability process best practice in a similar situation. You’ll be able to tell us about the success you’ve achieved in this regard and how that experience will assist you in this role.
You’ll be responsible for communicating your strategies, plans and findings to key stakeholders and the wider business, so your written and verbal communication skills will be top notch.
We’ve got big sustainability plans, so this role will develop alongside them. And for the right person, we’ll offer training in the areas you need. We’re leading the way in many areas when it comes to sustainability, and this is a chance to grab the baton and help us drive our industry to be better.
What we offer
For starters, you get 25 days holiday, which goes up to 29 after 2 years. There’s a company pension scheme, cycle to work scheme, and an extensive employee discount scheme that will save you money on everything from gym memberships to eating out.
We play hard. We throw awesome seasonal staff socials, finish early on Fridays in the summer, and we close down every year between Christmas and New Year.
We’ll look out for your wellbeing. There’s a medical plan that pays cashback on your dental treatment, glasses, physio and things like that; plus, it features an employee assist programme with a 24hr GP hotline and wellbeing support service. And if you refer a friend to come and work for us, we’ll pay you a finder’s fee.
The serious stuff
We take the serious stuff seriously. You’ll be given access to the learning and development you need to grow and progress. And we have clear codes of conduct and policies on issues like equality, diversity & inclusion, and sustainability (which you’ll be all over). We want our people to feel confident about helping us always be better.
