    Interested in further developing your career in the multibillion-dollar carbon offset industry? Our client, an established global brand in the carbon and cleantech industries, is seeking an experienced Business Development Manager to expedite growth for their carbon division (someone with proven international carbon sales expertise).

    The carbon offset sector is an exciting and rapidly emerging market in which you can make the most out of your niche sales expertise. If you have over 6 years of experience in closing carbon credit deals alongside a Master of Business Management (MBM) and/or Master of Business Administration (MBA), you may be the professional we are looking for. The role calls for an established international network within the heavy carbon emitter sovereign states. These could include high carbon emitter states such as Saudi Arabia, the United States, Australia, Japan, and India. Tell us all about your exceptional track record of closing large ticket size deals with these heavy hitters.

    As the ideal candidate, you would drive the development, management, and expansion of an existing, highly specialised team of individuals. We are seeking an individual with skin in the carbon game.

    This rapidly changing landscape demands an individual who can quickly adapt to international policy changes by implementing comprehensive sales strategies, effectively mapping the market through business intelligence. Although not a deal-breaker, marketing experience is highly desirable. By securing this role, you will become a crucial part of a company that has successfully contributed to global social and environmental transformation.

    Our client looks for team members who are not only strategic thinkers – but they love to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in, if this sounds like you and the type of team you would like to work with – then apply before you lose the chance!
