Are you looking for a unique opportunity at a growing sustainability department where you can be in the lead of sustainability projects? Then working as a LCA Sustainability Consultant at Cefetra might be a perfect fit for you!

Who we are
The Cefetra Group consists of various agricultural and food ingredients trading and supply chain management companies, with leading brands within the ingredients business. Collectively we employ over 600 people across 35 offices in 20 countries around the world. We work closely together to guarantee the best possible service to our customers. We develop supply chains with suppliers and create value by sourcing raw materials and supplying those to the international food and feed industry.

Our strategy
For BayWa and Cefetra Group, sustainability is a strong business driver. The United Nations and Bloomberg even selected BayWa as one of “50 Sustainability and Climate Leaders” worldwide for our pro-active leadership in sustainability and climate protection. With roots in the feed industry as a supplier of various proteins, cereals and oilseeds/(vegetable) oils, Cefetra Group is looking to further expand its portfolio in the coming years. Thereby transforming into a trader and supply chain manager of high-quality ingredients across different industries. Supported by its clear 'Road to Ingredients' strategy, Cefetra Group is actively seeking new growth areas within the food, nutrition and health markets.

The job

In a rapidly changing world, Cefetra takes its responsibilities seriously and looks critically at its processes and products. We believe it is important to know what is going on, where our impact is and where we can create opportunities to improve it as much as possible.

We are therefore looking for a professional who can make sustainability measurable by carrying out Life Cycle Assessments (LCA), in which making greenhouse gas emissions measurable is an important element, along with related issues such as biodiversity, water and various social aspects. However, the role is not limited to these services. You will also be involved in other sustainability projects that match your ambitions and skills.

Cefetra works in an international context with colleagues, customers, suppliers and many others in and around the chains in which we operate. We are ambitious, we want to grow and we want to do so responsibly, minimising our footprint in collaboration with many other stakeholders. That is why we are looking for an ambitious, enterprising and energetic Sustainability Consultant!

Your responsibilities are:

  • Planning and executing sustainability projects where independent and complete execution of Life Cycle Assessments (up to external verification of results) is an essential part of your work.
  • Define specific project scopes, objectives and deliverables.
  • Build and manage project teams, resources and budgets.
  • Monitoring progress and making adjustments where necessary, ensuring quality and reporting effectively to stakeholders.
  • Evaluate project deliverables and processes, and propose and implement necessary changes.
  • Willingness to dive into the needs of our various internal and external clients and provide ad hoc advice, proactively where necessary.

Who are you

Most important is that you can be critical and precise, but also pragmatic when needed. To be successful within Cefetra, it is important to have a ‘self-starter’ mentality, be open minded and curious. In addition, you can identify with the following requirements:

  • You have relevant experience in LCA and you have the ability to manage projects independent.
  • You have affinity for sustainability and its application in the agricultural and logistics related sectors, with an interest in corporate carbon accounting, carbon reduction plans and the development of ad hoc solutions for more sustainable practices.
  • You are IT savvy and have a strong experience with MS Office and other relevant software such as SimaPro or Gabi.
  • you have an excellent command of Dutch and English (both verbally and written) and if you speak any other language is welcome!

Our offer

A unique opportunity to help grow Cefetra’s sustainability department and join a dynamic team, within an existing multinational. We are always open for a conversation to discuss your individual needs, but please note we offer the following:

  • Flexible working hours and hybrid working as well as interesting learning and development opportunities.
  • An excellent package of primary & secondary working conditions. Of course a good base salary, holiday allowance, an attractive bonus and 27 vacation days.
