We believe that s ustainable business has a positive impact on our environment, society and economy – it is ambitious for all its stakeholders. Sustainable business is resilient, innovative and embraces change; and change must happen as what we do today will not be enough for tomorrow – every business must be sustainable. Our mission is to make sustainability more than a word.
Avieco is a market-leading independent sustainability team based in London. We work with great organisations that value our input and expertise – they include Google, Lloyds of London, Domino’s Pizza Group, the UK government, the European Investment Bank, Seasalt, Croda, Johnson Matthey, Royal Mail and many, many others.
We are hard-working and collaborative sustainability champions from diverse backgrounds. Together we take on each client’s sustainability challenge as if it were our own. Sustainability can be tough – if it were easy, then our economies and societies would already be sustainable. To help our clients, each of us must dig in and get to the bottom of the challenge before working out the best way forward. Every day means tackling and solving new problems, crunching the numbers, and working with our clients to understand what’s really going on.
We are a team, an ambitious, dynamic, positive team. We succeed through deliberate, conscious, active collaboration and through a diversity of skills, expertise, opinion and background. We know that the best solutions are brave and inspiring – that they can come from anyone, and that everyone’s contribution can progress, develop and grow.
Since 2007 we have grown one of the best sustainability teams in the industry and we are still growing. Our vision is to be the best independent sustainability team in the world, owned by the people in it.
Our mission is to make sustainability more than a word, by inspiring, challenging, understanding and empowering the clients we work with. We want people that are prepared to grab hold of challenges, and help shape workable solutions. We are looking for people who can embody our values – we only succeed when:
There is no limit to what you can get involved with as part of our growing team. An open mind, a keen interest to learn and a drive to tackle some of the greatest challenges of our generation is essential. We expect everyone at Avieco to progress and promotion is an important part of life here. If you are self-motivated, like a challenge, want to make a difference, take pride in delivering high-quality work and thrive in a collaborative environment – you’ll fit in just fine!
We are looking for a Business Assistant to perform a wide range of office and business support functions to help ensure Avieco operates well. You’ll be reporting directly to the Business Manager and will work closely with the Chief Executive and Chief Operating Officer, along with other senior managers in the business. You’ll be involved in every aspect of the business from Finance, HR, management systems, and more.
We want someone who is a problem solver and who will dive in and get things done. You’ll need to be committed to working and collaborating with everyone in the business – from junior colleagues to the Directors – to strengthen and improve the business. You’ll need to have an eye for detail and be able to manage several processes at once.
This role offers a great step-up on the business support ladder, offering a wide exposure to all the moving cogs within a business. We offer a thorough induction programme, and you’ll be supported to help you learn new processes relating to the role and business. There is significant potential for personal growth, with increased responsibility as you gain experience.
The key areas of responsibility are listed below, but we are looking for someone who will spot other areas that will help us work better.
At Avieco, diversity and inclusion are more than a mission to make people feel valued and included – it’s what makes us great at what we do. We take pride in encouraging people from all walks of life to come as they are, not only because it’s the right thing to do but because we fully believe that it allows us to better understand each other, better understand our clients and better solve sustainability challenges. We strongly encourage applications from all sectors of society and particularly those that are underrepresented in our team.
