Summary of vacancy

TerraCycle is seeking a French Speaking Project Manager who will join TerraCycle’s Material Solutions Team

Operating in 21 countries (including 12 in Europe), TerraCycle is a world leader in the recycling of generally non-recyclable waste, such as pens, snack wrappers, baby food pouches beauty product packaging, home care product packaging and even the likes of cigarette butts or marine plastics. We create collection and recycling solutions systems for anything that would otherwise be sent to incineration or landfill. We are partnered with some of the most recognizable brands and retailers in the world, including BIC, L’Oréal, Procter & Gamble and JDE amongst others.

TerraCycle has partnered with SUEZ, one of the largest resource management companies in the world, to develop innovative and differentiating recycling solutions:  http://bit.ly/2dDonSA

 

 

 

About the role

The main responsibilities for this role are to coordinate and support new and ongoing team projects. The initial focus for the first months will be on two innovative Diaper pilot projects. Based on the learnings and results of these pilots, the workload on that particular project might vary which will shift the focus of this position at different points through the year to other projects such as the beach plastic supply chain.

 

What will I be doing?

The 2 ground-breaking pilot programmes will launch in September in collaboration with a leading diaper brand company in order to collect and recycle diapers in the city of Amsterdam:

A collection programme where TerraCycle will install and service 10-15 smart collection bins (with the help of third-party partners) in different locations of the city for users to drop off their used diapers

A Direct-To-Consumer (DTC) model with a selection of families, where TerraCycle will manage a website to collect subscriptions orders and liaise with third-party partners to ensure regular delivery of new diapers, and pick up used diapers, to users directly to and from their homes

The position is based in Perivale, West London and will be reporting to the Head of Material Sales and Solutions in Europe and work closely with the project team based in Europe and in TerraCycle’s headquarters in Trenton, NJ.

What are the requirements?

Main responsibilities

  • For the diaper pilot: source, on-board and manage vendors such as bin manufacturer, collection and logistics partners, distribution partners, website, etc.
  • Create and manage tools to keep track of budget and timelines
  • Act as the liaison between external brand partner and external vendors to manage deliverables
  • Coordinate meetings and work with internal departments to manage deliverables and secure internal resource when necessary
  • Creation and management of an e-commerce platform for the DTC collection model.
  • Please note that candidates must have a working knowledge of French.

To apply please attach your CV.

SUEZ are advertising this position on behalf of TerraCycle and as such the successful candidate will be employed by TerraCycle directly.
