Since the year 2000 WRAP has been at the forefront of the Circular Economy.  We work with governments, businesses, communities, thinkers and individuals around the world, forging powerful partnerships and delivering ground-breaking initiatives to support more sustainable economies and society. We are world leaders in establishing the facts, getting the right people working together and converting ideas into action and delivery on the ground.


We have an exciting opportunity for an International Relationships Manager to join WRAP to support the delivery of our international work on plastic waste and circular fashion. Joining a dynamic team delivering ground-breaking initiatives in over 20 countries, the International Relationships Manager will build vital funding and delivery partnerships around the world.

Our work is truly global, with projects across Europe, Africa, Asia, the Pacific and the Americas. The ability to identify and engage with funding and delivery partners in these regions is essential to this role, as is engaging businesses and governments to support voluntary agreements in multiple countries.

To be successful in this role you’ll need experience of working in a variety of cultural contexts outside the UK. In addition, you’ll need demonstrable experience of engaging a variety of stakeholders, including major international retailers and brands, and ideally governments, to deliver successful outcomes. You will need to be a self-starter, able to identify and drive forward opportunities in line with WRAP’s international strategy. A track record of developing funding proposals would be an advantage.

This is a permanent, full-time role, based from our Banbury office, with flexibility for home working. Worldwide travel is an essential part of the role.  Please refer to the job description below for further details about what the role entails and the job essentials.
