Denholm is delighted to be partnering with Circularity Scotland – a unique not-for-profit start-up – as they bring some fantastic new Account Relationship Manager roles to market.
As the first company of this kind in the UK, Circularity Scotland was set up in 2021 with the specific purpose of administering Scotland’s Deposit Return Scheme and have a mission to make Scotland a cleaner, green place.
These are newly created roles for the organisation and with a mix of permanent and 12-month FTC opportunities available, you will provide hands-on relationship management to a number of large organisations within the Producers, Retailers or Trade Associations groups.
These would be well suited to individuals with a passion for building long-lasting relationships looking to build on their experience gained within an account management, category development or customer service area (FMCG experience would be a bonus!).
Key responsibilities of the role include:
- Championing Circularity Scotland and being first point of contact to allocated organisations
- Working to set timelines to get organisations signed up to the scheme and supporting them through the registration process
- Ensuring all organisations have all the information to hand and are fully briefed
- Assist with the signing of formal contracts
- Working closely with the organisations’ project teams with weekly project calls
- Meeting with organisations over Teams and on-site where appropriate
This isn’t a cold calling or “sales” role. It will be in their benefit to sign up to the scheme, so you’ll use your confidence and enthusiasm to explain the benefits of this. You’ll come with some broad commercial experience (ideally around 4/5 years+) and if you’ve worked within a start-up before, that would be great, but by no means essential.
You may be sitting within a category management, account manager, supply chain or customer service role. Or you could be working in a sales environment – looking to make the move into more of a relationship manager role.
This will initially be fully home-based but with a new office opening in Glasgow in September, will then revert to hybrid where you will likely be in the office once a week. This is more to give you the chance to build relationships with the internal teams at Circularity Scotland.
