What you’ll do

We’re looking for a Sustainability & Carbon Negative Executive to join our Operations team. This individual will work to drive the carbon negative and sustainability (specifically carbon footprint related) agenda within MMT Digital and the wider MSQ group. The role will start remotely, but when we return to the office, you'll be based in our Uppingham office, East Midlands.

We’re passionate about making a better and greener future, but this is more than an empty strategy. In 2020 the MSQ Group became one of the first global digital marketing organisations to become carbon negative. We do this by:

  • accurately measuring and reporting on carbon footprint
  • putting strategies in place to reduce the carbon footprint of each entity within the MSQ Group
  • running initiatives to offset far more carbon than we produce.

Demonstrating this requires accurate data capturing, analysis and for our models to be regularly updated. These reports will be shared with new and existing clients, internal teams and across our social channels allowing you to demonstrate the impact of our work.

Some of the awesome projects you’ll be working on:

  • Creating company reporting dashboards to share our progress across the group and with key clients.
  • Creating and managing staff surveys to enable more accurate modelling of carbon footprint.
  • Being the driving force within the carbon negative council and communicating / updating regularly to keep the group engaged with all activity.
  • Keeping up to speed with news around the drive to a Net Zero economy in order to bring forward new ideas and initiatives.
  • Carrying out official MSQ offsetting reporting (via the Ecologi platform)
  • Working with key people at MSQ companies to review and switch to more renewable suppliers for all goods and services (e.g. working with landlords to switch to green energy suppliers)
  • Working with MSQ companies to review how to reduce electricity usage (e.g. LED lighting etc)
  • Installation of electric vehicle charging points for offices with car parks
  • Supporting HR and finance teams in the management of the “MSQ People” staff salary sacrifice scheme for carbon offsetting.

What you’ll bring

In order to flourish in this role, you’ll need the following:

  • A passion to tackle climate change and improve sustainability to support our global organisation reduce our carbon footprint for today and tomorrow.
  • Confident communicator – both in writing and verbally. You’ll need to feel comfortable to communicate across all levels of the MSQ Group and our clients.
  • Passion to work hard and do an amazing job.
  • Ability to work independently and operate within high level guidance principles.
  • A willingness to learn and develop, growing with this role as it evolves.
  • You’ll need to be flexible in your approach leading the administration and management of this work moving forwards.
  • Comfortable working with data and Excel spreadsheets.
  • Proven ability to use your passion to stay informed within the Net Zero economy space to make real life changes.

It would also be great (but not essential) if you have:
