An approach to sustainability to be proud of


When it comes to sustainability, we’re an organisation that doesn’t compromise on our responsibilities.

In 2019 we launched a sustainability strategy designed to make sure we were focusing on our contribution to society and the major issues facing our planet. And then in 2022 we reassessed our approach. We set ourselves even tougher challenges and targets to meet because we recognise just how urgent a priority climate change is.

Our sustainability ethos is built around supporting the communities we serve, sourcing as responsibly as we can, and showing respect for the planet by working hard to reduce our emissions, tackle waste and protect biodiversity.

And we will never stop asking ourselves what more we can do.

  • A full clean UK driver’s licence
  • As this role is mobile there’s flexibility over where you reside in the UK, but you’ll need to be able to travel to our Head Office located in the heart of the vibrant city of Birmingham for meetings when required
