In this new role as Sustainability Advisor at BRB International, you will be at the forefront of our sustainable growth strategy. You will have the opportunity to actually build this. Together with your colleagues at PETRONAS, you will work on a global approach. Do you bring the expertise we are looking for?

What will you be doing?

Sustainability is something that has high priority in our agenda and that is why, as an advisor, you will be actively involved in it. You will gather information about sustainability topics within the organization and translate this into feasible policies and procedures to achieve our sustainability goals.

Initially, your focus will be on issues surrounding CO2. Think for example about the amount of CO2 emissions per product and the CO2 value for the entire factory. You will get your information by doing research and having conversations with suppliers and colleagues. Then you combine the various reports, identify any areas for improvement and come up with a recommendation. And what makes this job even more fun? You do this worldwide.

We are a partner of MVO Nederland. You will be closely involved in the implementation of the CSR strategy and will work with questionnaires.

You will report to the Global Manager QESH who will allow you to work independently and to whom you can always turn with questions.

What makes this job interesting?

Because you are actively working on our growth strategy in the field of sustainability, you have a lot of influence on the way we work in the future. This means you can contribute to the growth of our company. You will be working in a dynamic fast-growing organization. We work hard and there is room for conviviality.

You will also be working closely with our colleagues at PETRONAS. The acquisition by PETRONAS gives you the best of both worlds. The advantages of a large corporate organization and with the freedom to be entrepreneurial and implement your own ideas.

• a good salary that matches your knowledge and experience;

• The possibility to work hybrid.

What do you bring?

You enjoy the challenge of working in an international environment where every day is different. Because you have good communication skills, you can communicate at every level within the organisation and with external parties. You are also accurate, which ensures that you record all data correctly. You enjoy working in a highly independent position and take the initiative.
