Acre has partnered with a leading UK food manufacturer and as such I'm looking to speak with Environmental Managers from within Food manufacturing, Pharmaceuticals/Chemicals and site-based Oil and Gas projects.

My client has assessed how Environmental issues are evaluated within the business and as a result has created an Environmental Management position, to solely focus on the daily environmental challenges that occur within large scale food manufacturing facilities. Your objective will be setting the long-term strategy for reducing the site's environmental impact, including areas around water usage, carbon consumption and waste.

Alongside technical skills, and as part of our client's on-going progressive approach, you will be required to proactively drive culture change within the organisation. Achieving success within environmental culture change is a key focus for the company, therefore being able to effectively influence various senior stakeholders in the UK and overseas, will play a big part in your successes within this position.

You will be working for a company who are putting environmental issues high on the agenda, and this is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a new, exciting and fruitful project to make your mark on the company and the wider environment.

You will also be responsible for:

  • Formulating and implement environment management systems, consistent with wider group strategy
  • Representing the company at group environmental initiatives, preparing and issuing reports against performance, strategy and audits
  • Collaborating with CSR and Sustainability departments to ensure a consistent approach contributes to holistic improvement
  • Managing environmental relationships with enforcement agencies, developing uniformity across the company's sites
