Sustainability and Environment Manager

Aston Manor is multiple-award winning business that as a strategic priority is working to become increasingly sustainable. To deliver on this business imperative we invest significant resources and drive continuous improvement across all operations.

In this role you will be responsible for managing and overseeing sustainability and environmental issues for all four of our sites.

We are especially keen to recruit someone who can bring insight and drive to help us identify how we can continue to make progress by identifying what more we can do and, in particular, how we can meet and exceed the future ambitions of our customers and their consumers.

This is a hands-on role, reporting directly to the Head of Compliance who is based at the Witton site.

You will have recent experience in dealing with both internal and external customers at varying levels of seniority.

Most likely you will have a postgraduate degree in a relevant discipline and/or relevant professional qualifications. It will be of value if you can demonstrate subject matter knowledge and expertise of environmental and social sustainability within the retail and consumer goods sectors.

The role involves the ability to prioritise broad areas of responsibility and a workload that can change at short notice whilst remaining resilient, with a positive can-do attitude, when that happens.

There will be some travel between our sites and to customer and other locations within the UK. Other features of the role include:

  • Keeping up to date with changes in legislation linked with Sustainability and Environment and drafting consultation submissions on relevant issues
  • Keeping abreast of key industry and sustainability trends and proactively identify emerging and future supply base issues, risks and opportunities
  • Identifying potential new beneficial collaborations to advance sustainability with the support of others
  • Supporting the development of training materials for key internal stakeholders and suppliers as needed
  • Supporting the development of business objectives, performance measures or other metrics to aid decision-making and to demonstrate improved sustainability and commercial value
  • Representing Aston Manor externally with key stakeholders such as the Environment Agency, UK Plastics Pact, OPRL and others
  • Acting as an internal consultant to the business providing expertise on sustainability.
