Senior Sustainability Consultant

About Minimum

Minimum is a Y Combinator backed start-up, founded to tackle the biggest challenge currently facing humanity: how to get the world to net zero carbon emissions before it's too late.

Our mission is to help companies understand their impact on the environment and collaborate with them to reduce this impact through a hybrid approach of innovative and sophisticated software solutions and world class sustainability expertise.

The Opportunity

You would be one of a team of sustainability experts. Your role will be a combination of:

  • Guiding our larger clients on their sustainability journeys by helping them develop a comprehensive carbon footprint, develop a Net Zero strategy and engaging with relevant stakeholders to deliver the strategy.
  • Working with the co-founders and the product team to develop Minimum’s innovative proposition centred around streamlining the carbon accounting process.

You are joining a tight-knit team where everyone knows and cares about each other and what they're working on. You'll report to James Parker, our founding sustainability lead, but you will interact very frequently with all the wider team.

All (or some) of the following:

  • 4+ years of experience in sustainability, including regular customer-facing interactions
  • Experience evaluating business carbon footprints and/ or reporting on these in line with globally recognised standards
  • Experience developing stakeholder engagements, including building and managing long-term client relationships
  • Strong analytical and technical capabilities
  • Confident and self-motivated
  • Ability and drive to take ownership of projects

The Skillset – ‘Nice to have’

All (or some) of the following:

  • Experience engaging with senior stakeholders from large organisations.
  • Experience of conducting product hotspot analysis, ideally in a range of industries
  • Knowledge of different sectors (e.g consumer goods, automotive, fashion, finance, professional services) with insights on their sustainability and wider environmental challenges
  • Familiarity with reporting and disclosure standards e.g. CDP Reporting, TCFD Reporting

What the role will look like:

  1. Manage a team to develop high-level carbon footprint calculations and estimates for companies.
  2. Guide iterations of Minimum’s Carbon Management Platform.
  3. Lead engagement with companies’ forward looking sustainability strategies and journeys to Net Zero.
  4. Engage with prospective clients in the sales process to showcase Minimum's technical expertise.

This is a full-time role with a salary range of £50k-£70k per annum depending on experience.

We encourage applications from candidates of all backgrounds and identities. Each new hire is an opportunity for us to bring in a different perspective, and we are always eager to further diversify our company. Minimum is committed to building an inclusive, supportive place for colleagues to do their best and most rewarding work
