    Are you a high-level executive looking for your next challenge? Our client, an established global brand in the carbon and cleantech industries, is seeking an experienced Commercials Director that that can lock-down multiple existing long-term distribution agreements and strategic alliances (someone with proven international experience in securing high stakes contracts).

    If you have over 10 years of experience in a senior management or leadership role within the carbon offset industry, then you might be perfect for this role. We’re looking for someone who has a proven track record in successfully creating opportunities and partnerships that ordinary people wouldn’t envision. This calls for an individual who has a well-established network within the aid, development, and carbon industries.

    So, you’ve got the experience, but will you fit in with the team?

    Our client is looking for a naturally creative mind to join their dynamic team of world-class designers and engineers. Someone strategic that isn’t afraid to colour outside of the lines. The carbon offset industry is a fast-paced, constantly shifting environment and so this role calls for a candidate with an agile and analytical mind. Someone bold that can convince just about anyone to jump on board a project whilst simultaneously questioning their own assumptions. The ideal candidate would need to be a strong leader and confident representative of our client at international events and conferences. At these events, you would easily move through the room, shaking hands and locking-in unique partnerships. This type of business environment demands versatility.

    You might be comfortable in a suit, but can you interact with communities that aren’t part of the 1%? Imperative to this role is a passion for both social and environmental transformation on an international scale.

    If purpose is something you value in a career and you meet all the above criteria, then apply now before someone else snaps this role up!
