Talent Acquisition Specialist – Operations

Job Overview

About Us

We're an ambitious team with big plans for the future, but the environment motivates us as much as any share price or KPI. And if there's one thing that fires us up, it's plastic waste. Plastic bags, plastic packaging, plastic bottles; don't get us started!

We're talking about the single-use plastics people discard every day, without a second thought. We're on a mission to revolutionise consumer habits by delivering fresh ways to return and reuse packaging, shop ethically, and feel good about convenience. We want to reset our throwaway society.

Can you help us accomplish our mission? We're looking for enthusiastic people with strong ethics who care about the planet, as well as our working environment. We want you to feel proud of the company and the vital work you're doing to reduce landfill waste and keep our oceans clean. Above all, we want you to thrive in your role.
