Descriptif du poste

NEPCon’s activities and geographical reach are growing, and we are therefore seeking an experienced and enthusiastic professional to support the provision of our responsible sourcing services in France and globally. The role will include providing advisory services to a global portfolio of clients in the timber sector and beyond, as well as supporting sales and marketing of NEPCon services.

As Responsible Sourcing Specialist you will be working within these main areas:

1. Timber Legality:

You will lead NEPCon’s client relationship with timber legality clients in France and globally, including large retail clients. This will include scheduling and conducting risk assessment and mitigation activities, aimed at meeting the requirements of the EU Timber Regulation (EUTR) as well as clients’ bespoke sustainability criteria.
You will support the NEPCon Solutions team to conduct risk assessments, and liaise with regional teams in China, Africa, SE Asia and other source countries to assess the risk of illegal timber in supply chains.
You will also work closely with companies to implement solutions to problems, through training, creation of documented due diligence systems, and providing support with implementation.

2. Responsible Sourcing:

Assist the development and provision of NEPCon’s new ResponsibleSource service, aimed at supporting companies to mainstream sustainability into their business practices. The service helps companies create and implement sustainability policies; provides training and support for implementation; and maps and assesses risk in supply chains. Besides timber products, this service focuses on forest-impact commodities, such as oil palm, soy and beef.
An important aspect of this work is auditing against the LegalSource and ResponsibleSource standards.

3. Sales & Marketing:

Conduct sales and marketing activities to raise the profile of NEPCon in France and Africa. This will include translation and/or creation of marketing and sales materials, conducting sales meetings, creating budgets and proposals, attending stakeholder events and conferences, sales meetings and other activities.
You will also support NEPCon’s team in Africa to enhance linkages between France and African markets and effect change in producer countries.

Position details:

Work time: 35 hours/week
The position reports to the NEPCon Solutions Deputy Director for Europe, Russia & Africa (based in UK)
Working location: Working from home or a shared office space in France. Note that NEPCon does not have a permanent office in France.
Salary commensurate with qualifications and experience
Expected starting date: 1 May 2019

We offer:

International training in certification services provided by NEPCon
International travel opportunities
An exciting and challenging position within a dynamic and innovative international organisation with a mission-driven work atmosphere
A friendly, international team of colleagues, with a pleasant work environment
Excellent opportunities for growth and professional development

Compétences requises

Professional requirements:

Higher education (at least bachelor's degree) in the field of forestry, biology, geography, environmental management, law, international development, international policy, or related field.
Minimum 3 years’ work experience in the timber processing/trading, certification or related sector.
Excellent spoken and written French and English. Fluency in Russian, Chinese or Spanish will be considered an additional asset.
Detailed knowledge of, or experience working in, one or more of the following areas: timber processing industry, wood trade, forest management, nature protection, wood biomass industry, or similar area.
Detailed knowledge of forestry legislation and policy context, as well as associated laws around transport and trade of timber products.
Detailed knowledge of, or experience working with, Chain of Custody systems and traceability systems for wood products.
Understanding of risk-based approaches to legality and sustainability assessments.
Proficiency in the MS Office package and good understanding of administrative IT systems.

Personal qualities:

As a Responsible Sourcing Specialist, you will need to find the balance between serving the clients and at the same time not compromising the independent role of an auditor. As a person, you must have a high level of integrity and business ethics combined with customer service skills. In addition:

You have a high level of self-discipline, an ability to organise and manage yourself and your time to meet deadlines, as well as the ability to make independent decisions, since the nature of the job requires you to work independently and remotely from your colleagues.
You are willing and able to travel internationally as part of your job role.
You have an analytical approach and are able to identify non-conformities and risks when assessing client procedures.
You are a confident public speaker, and able to provide training to a variety of audiences and represent NEPCon at external events.
You are an open and friendly person, who is good at and enjoys communicating with people on all levels.
You are a constructive team-player and have an open attitude towards other cultures, as we collaborate across borders in our organisation.
You are comfortable working in a remote-working environment, where most communication with colleagues around the world occurs via email, skype and telephone.
