Do you want to turn your sales experience into creating positive change? We are looking for someone who wants to make work that matters by joining the sustainability sector, who loves a challenge and who can manage multiple projects simultaneously.

In this role you will get the chance to work on a wide variety of accounts, so no two days at TerraCycle will be the same!

What is TerraCycle?

TerraCycle’s mission is to Eliminate the idea of Waste®.

Operating in 21 countries (12 in Europe), TerraCycle is a world leader in recycling hard-to-recycle waste, such as pens, snack wrappers, food pouches, beauty product packaging - even cigarette butts and marine plastics!

We create solutions for waste streams that would otherwise go for incineration or landfill, then transform the collected packaging into new products like outdoor furniture, playgrounds and park benches to be donated to local charities.

To achieve this, we partner with some of the biggest household brands and retailers in the world, including P&G, L'Oréal, Kroger and Walmart.
