Anna Minns

14 April 2014 – Global recycling start-up TerraCycle is looking for an account manager for the Australian office to build relationships with stakeholder brands across Australia and New Zealand, including Colgate, Nespresso, Nature’s Organics and Cadbury.

The company’s general manager, Anna Minns, said the full-time role would suit someone who is passionate about the environment, with several years experience in relationship management and skills across advertising and marketing. The successful applicant will be a self-starter, with the ability to multitask and take on other tasks as required.

“We have a start-up culture – it’s a very hands-on role,” Ms Minns said.

The new appointment will bring TerraCycle’s Australian staff to three people, working out of an office in Darlinghurst.

Since the global company launched its Australian operation in March this year, 2500 individuals and organisations have signed up for the recycling initiative with 147,000 individual pieces of waste submitted to date.

“A large proportion of this is cigarette butts sent in from Clean Up Australia Day,” Ms Minns commented, adding that Australia Post had brokered the company’s relationship with the national litter reduction initiative.

The coffee capsules recycling is also progressing well, with 40 florists around Australia acting as drop-off points for consumers.

Applications for the account manager position can be made through the company website, and close on 30 April. The new appointment is expected to commence work in mid-June 2014.
