EcoTree is a green-tech company specializing in sustainability. Our goal is to promote environmental awareness and engage individuals and businesses in eco-friendly behaviour by offering simple, concrete, and financially viable solutions to becoming a tree or even forest owner.
We’re looking for a bright, entrepreneurial mind that is interested in kicking off their professional career by helping businesses save the planet by supporting afforestation across Europe . As a junior business developer, you will work closely with the country managers for Denmark and the United Kingdom, helping them to turn leads into commercial partnerships.
You’ll play a key role in growing our client base and annual turnover by closing deals and helping commercial teams service existing client needs. In doing so, you will learn valuable skills in scaling up a new, sustainable business.
EcoTree is a startup on a mission to make the world a greener place by planting, developing and managing sustainable forests across Europe.
EcoTree owns and sustainably manages forest land, and our customers buy & own the trees. Our work aims to both preserve biodiversity and contribute to the planet’s vital capture of CO2. When the trees accomplish their miraculous job of keeping nature in balance, they are cut and sold for high-quality timber at minimal impact to the forest. And here’s the wow bit: all the revenue goes directly back to the tree owners!
We’ve planted and currently manage over 1 million trees in France and Scandinavia on behalf of 60,000+ individuals and 1,200+ companies. We are launching our first UK projects in 2022 and Germany in 2023.
EcoTree is proud to be B Corp and recognised in 2021 as being “Best for the World” in their environment category.
You are currently close to finishing your Bachelors or starting your Masters. Your academic interests are in business, sustainability or environmental sciences. Even better if you already have a track record of growing good business ideas. Either way, you are keen to help our young company grow into a leading nature-based solutions provider; interested in saving the planet and able to make a difference.
