Job Description

We are recruiting a Sustainability, Environmental Compliance and Bid Manager to work for a leading manufacturing company based in Dudley.

There will be an opportunity for Hybrid working.

Due to continued international growth our award-winning designer and manufacturer has a new and exciting role to manage the delivery, governance and reporting of a long term, robust and credible sustainability strategy for the Group; thus helping to position the Group as an industry leader to assist with revenue growth through bid compliance and environmental and social enhancements.

This role will play a vital part in delivering, reporting, and communicating this vision, both internally and externally, and will work with all our business units and functions (mostly in the UK and USA, but also working with our global supply chain) acting as a catalyst for sustainable strategies and change.

The successful candidate will manage three distinct yet overlapping areas of the business:, The Sustainability Program, Bid Management; Environmental Compliance

Bid Management

" Assess RFIs and RFPs for suitability for our business and work with the management team to agree which bids we will respond to.
" Gather information from across the business to generate a factual and robust response.
" Answer the questions posed clearly, accurately and truthfully. Every bid should be written persuasively, ensuring that the value we can bring to any given contract is obvious to those scoring the bids.
" Work with our marketing team to develop a suitable tone of voice that reflects each customer's profile.
" Work with the wider team to develop consistent grammar and lexicon, so that each bid feels harmonious, regardless of which members of the team have contributed text to each section.
" In the interests of futureproofing and making the process of bidding more efficient, build a database of answers that make each new bid an easier task than those that have come before.

Environmental Compliance

" Work with our design team to understand our products in detail.
" Make yourself an expert in the relevant clauses of BREEAM, LEED and WELL v2.
" Gather information from our component suppliers and their materials and finishes supply-chain to allow you to build a comprehensive picture of each product at base material and chemical level.
" Become familiar and efficient at uploading data into portals like 'Toxnot' and 'Living Building' in order to achieve approvals for Declare Labels or Health Product Declarations, which can then be published on architectural databases to drive future specifications.
" Build a detailed understanding of what is required to pursue Cradle-to-Cradle certification and then work with the Design Director to ensure that new product development (NPD) is conducted in line with expectations.
The successful candidate will have the following skills:
" We're looking for someone who is engaging, as you'll be inspiring employees, customers, and other stakeholders across the group to participate in our sustainability, environment and social activities.
" Has a passion to drive sustainability and compliance throughout the business.
" Has an understanding how the products we manufacture and distribute have an impact on our drive towards sustainability.

" Degree/Postgraduate level or equivalent qualifications in sustainability, environmental management, bid writing, project management or similar.

In return the company will provide full product support training, a family business, a wide range of benefits and a stable company to work for.
