Business Development Associate – France

TerraCycle is the world leader in the collection and recycling of post-consumer waste that is generally considered non-recyclable. We recycle everything from pens, toothbrushes and candy wrappers to cigarette butts and scores of other waste streams that would otherwise be sent to landfill or be incinerated. TerraCycle promotes a circular economy and a closed-loop approach to waste management.

Headquartered outside of NYC and operating in 21 countries (and growing), TerraCycle contracts with some of the top 100 consumer products companies (including P&G, L'Oreal, BIC, Henkel). TerraCycle is a global pioneer in green business; it recently received significant notice by the famous business magazine Fortune: http://for.tn/2bA5IVC

In late 2009, TerraCycle began its European operations in the UK, beginning with two waste streams and has since grown to over 50 collection programmes across 12 European markets with over 100,000 consumer locations.

TerraCycle has recently partnered with Suez Environnement, one of the largest waste management companies in the world, to develop innovative and differentiating recycling solutions: http://bit.ly/2dDonSA

In this context, the company seeks to hire a Business Development Associate to support the growth of the European business with a core focus on France. This is a unique role for a resourceful, driven individual looking for an exceptional opportunity in the sustainability field.

The position is based in Perivale, West London and the Business Development Associate will report and work closely with the European Business Development Manager and join an existing team of 4 Business Development Associates.
