Job Description

Allen & York are delighted to be partnering with a unique, purpose-driven sustainability consultancy who work with a range of clients across various sectors, including retail and food and drink, as they now look to recruit a Head of Department for their Sustainable Business Team, of which there are twelve members. This is also a senior leadership role where you'll be part of a four-person strategic Team, so will influence the strategic direction of the business and help guide it to further success. This role is critical to the success of the business so they're looking for someone who's confident in their ability to engage with clients, talk confidently about the services and products that the company offer, and have sufficient technical knowledge in the sustainability arena to be able to consult effectively. It's very much an outwardly facing role, client focused so you'll be comfortable engaging with clients and other stakeholders, talking about sustainability whilst also managing the Sustainable Business Team, inspiring them and guiding them. You'll need to be credible from a sustainability perspective, so have a good all-round knowledge of various technical areas in sustainability and a level of gravitas is required, for both new and existing clients and also for the Team internally. Based in Central London in a co-working space - which in itself is a sustainable building and has a vibrant atmosphere - they really value the Team being in the office whilst appreciating that people want flexibility as well so they offer hybrid working, with three days in the office and 2 from home. For the right candidate, they're also open to considering someone who is looking to work four days a week and be in the office for half of this. They offer a really good work life balance and a lovely culture, which makes it a really great place to work. So, if you are interested in joining a company who are committed to working closely with their clients and forming long standing partnerships with them, as well as nurturing and developing their own Team, and you'd like to find out more, please contact Katie on About us: Allen & York have been matching purposeful people with purpose-led organisations for 30 years. We partner with our clients and candidates on roles that build an understanding of climate change, promote sustainability and create inclusive and responsible organisations, working towards a sustainable world for us all. Committed to inclusiveness in the workplace, we aim to increase diversity across all areas and therefore welcome applications from all qualified candidates, regardless of their ethnicity, race, gender, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, age, or whether or not they have a disability. Let's help build a better world, together.
