Sustainability Lead

Department: Procurement
Location: North London (Enfield)
Closing date: 27 September 2019

Westmill is a specialist food supplier whose market leading brands include Amoy, Asli Atta, Elephant Atta, Patak’s, Pride, Rajah and Tolly Boy. Found in the best professional and home kitchens, our brands are respected for their quality and authenticity and our vision is to inspire our communities with colourful food, through working with our trade partners in the ethnic and grocery channels. Working for Westmill means you belong to an entrepreneurial and culturally diverse business that values high performance, collaboration and the desire to make a difference.

This is an exciting opportunity for someone who is passionate about Sustainability, to lead the delivery and on-going development of our “Caring from the Roots Up” strategy across Westmill, to ensure it meets the needs of the business and that of our key stakeholders.

You will be responsible for leading our compliance work, ensuring that suppliers meet our stringent requirements on sustainability, as well as liaising with the sites to ensure that environmental targets are met. You will also support the delivery of wider sustainability initiatives across the business and represent Westmill at ethical trade forums, meetings and events as required.

We are looking for someone with lots of energy, drive and the aptitude to work in a fast moving and dynamic team that is focused on delivering results. Whilst experience in Sustainability would be an advantage, it is not a block to your entry into this role. The ability to convert passion for the role into results will be your biggest advantage.

The ability to build trust and respectful relationships in a cross functional and cross-cultural environment, together with strong stakeholder management and influencing skills, will be critical to your success, as will your ability to manage a range of competing priorities and multiple projects. The capability to communicate effectively and work collaboratively, supplemented with strong analytical skills are also important attributes for this role.
