Description

Director of Sustainability for EMEA

Shirley Parsons has been exclusively retained to appoint a Director of Sustainability with a leading logistics company. Due to the global presence of this organisation, for the right candidate there is flexibility on location across the UK, Netherlands and Germany.

As Director of Sustainability, you will be pivotal in building the sustainability strategy and advising the business accordingly. Understanding the focus at corporate level will be necessary in order to develop this strategy and to successfully manage several stakeholder groups. Keeping abreast of latest trends, national and global initiatives and having an appreciation for the industry in which the business operates will be fundamental in making a positive impact.

To be successful, you’ll need proven experience in a senior sustainability position, knowing how to build and implement a sustainability strategy and how to successfully navigate and influence across an organisation.
