Your mission:

  • Cold Call Kings and Queens - zero fear of the phone and the tenacity to keep trying when things get tough

  • Independence - you’re comfortable working remotely, understand how to structure your time, and can communicate clearly and openly with your line manager remotely.
  • Confident relationship builders - whether on the phone or walking in off the street, you enjoy making connections quickly and presenting the proposition with clarity and passion
  • Hunger - you’re impact focused, understand KPIs and are driven to hit smash targets

  • First class communication skills
  • Good listener and the power of persuasion
  • Strong organisational and time management skills

  • Driven by both individual performance and desire to see team succeed


Your Values:

  • A true passion for sustainability and fighting food waste is a MUST - you understand the urgency of action for the planet
  • You’re creative, full of ideas to develop and implement - and quickly!
  • You’re resourceful, able to find another way to achieve your objective with maximum impact and find solutions (not problems)
  • You’re growth-minded; always wanting to go a step further and do better

Benefits

What we offer:

  • Superb (and rare!) opportunity to join Europe’s hottest start-up - a fast scaling pan-European business with a very real environmental and social impact
  • The chance to do something that really matters - every day
  • A unique and challenging place to work, with smart, highly passionate and dedicated people from around the world who love food and hate waste
  • Competitive salary (with opportunity for performance related bonuses)
