We’re on a mission to eliminate all single-use food packaging for a more sustainable future. We’re starting by tackling disposable coffee cups, by providing a returnable packaging service for drinks to brands, retailers and businesses.
We are looking for an experienced and commercially minded Chief Operating Officer with a passion for making the world a better place. The role is to build, lead and manage the delivery of returnable food packaging (starting with CupClub™ designed and manufactured cups, lids and cases) for some of the worlds biggest food and beverage businesses. You’ll need to be the perfect mix of commercial, operational, technical, practical and personable.
We’ve had some attention from the press already since our industry launch in April 2018. Check out : City A.M, BBC, Sky, Y-Food, Dezeen, Design Week, Core77, Disrupt Innovation Festival, Dwell, Design Indaba and Ogilvy.
You’ll be given the freedom to make decisions and you’ll be empowered to design and implement effective and efficient systems. You’ll receive the support and the opportunity to learn from those around you. We are currently a growing team of eight plus a wide network of contractors with specialist skills. We fund a monthly team outing where we check out one of the capital’s cultural highlights around the topic of food/packaging/sustainability/tech.
One of the key reasons for working here is that you get to work with some of the most important sustainability driven clients in the world. Happy clients and ongoing relationships are our most important indicator of success, and the cornerstone of our business. Our clients include Waitrose & Partners, John Lewis & Partners and Cushman & Wakefield. Our client leads range all the way from the largest drinks brands through to catering companies, corporates, and high street cafes owners.
