At WRAP we are trying to change the world. We’re experts in mobilising tangible action – and we’re on a mission to ensure that we use our resources sustainably to limit climate change.

We broker and manage sector-wide voluntary agreements, accelerating change in ways that governments, individual companies or communities cannot achieve on their own. We forge powerful partnerships, bringing together organisations that would not normally work together to work towards common goals. 

Textiles 2030 will be the most ambitious national voluntary agreement for clothing and other textiles in the world. Our ten-year programme will transform UK clothing and home fabrics to reduce their impact on climate change. It will take the UK from a make-use-dispose culture to a circular one where goods are produced sustainably, used longer, and then re-used or recycled into new products.

We are looking for an equally ambitious Senior Business Account Manager to lead our engagement with the UK’s biggest brands and retailers from across the clothing and textile sector.

You will acquire new signatories to the Voluntary Agreement, secure their commitment to take action and use your commercial experience to help shape our programme of activities to maximum effect.

This is a fast-moving role and we’re looking for someone who can hit the ground running. You’ll be great at building relationships, adept at developing value propositions that get results, motivated by making a big difference in the world and a self-starter.

This is a full-time, permanent role.  Please refer to the job description below for further details about what the role entails and the job essentials.

WRAP welcomes applications from suitably qualified applicants, regardless of religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, marital status, disability or race.

To apply, please complete an application form and email to jobs@wrap.org.uk, enclosing your CV. 

Interviews will be held on the week commencing the 7th December
