Project Lead, Hubbub Enterprise

Location: based in Central London

Contract: full time

Salary: £35,000 per annum

Apply by midnight, 5th December 2018

Hubbub Enterprise is seeking a Project Lead to join our dynamic team in Somerset House, central London. This is a brilliant opportunity to join and shape a purpose-led business with huge growth potential. 

Hubbub Enterprise is the social enterprise arm of Hubbub Foundation, an environmental charity. The charity designs positive, playful campaigns that inspire people to make healthier, greener choices. The social enterprise draws on the charity’s work to create products and services that maximise the charity’s impact and create a financial surplus. Examples include our corporate volunteering activity, Plastic Fishing and our innovative anti-cigarette litter product, the Ballot Bin.

The role

In a typical week a Project Lead might be running a coffee cup recycling campaign in a busy town centre, creating a business case to expand Plastic Fishing to other locations and delivering a presentation at a conference. 

You will take responsibility for developing and managing projects from the first conversation to the final report. You understand the intended social and environmental impact for each project, and ensure this is prioritised throughout.

You will create budgets and project plans and work with your colleagues, clients and external stakeholders to deliver them effectively. 

You will play an active part in developing Hubbub Enterprise’s strategy. You will explore new business opportunities and help to make the most of our existing relationships. You are as comfortable talking to corporate clients as you are with local government and the non-profit sector. 

You are highly organised, independent and you have a can-do attitude. And you want to put all these qualities and skills to use for environmental and social benefit.

We are looking for the following skills/experience

  • Experience of running complex projects from beginning to end. 
  • A high level of numeracy, and familiarity with creating and running budgets. 
  • Experience working under pressure. You are able to prioritise and produce high-quality work with tight deadlines. 
  • Sales and marketing: you have sold something, and you understand how to position and promote products and services. 
  • Stakeholder/client management. You have been the main point of contact for clients or partners and feel confident managing and building those relationships.
  • Excellent written and spoken English; you are confident speaking in public and writing proposals, blogs and reports. 
  • Confidence with Excel/Sheets and PowerPoint: you are able to organise and analyse data and create attractive presentations. 
  • Business development experience (preferable but not essential)
  • Knowledge of social enterprise, corporate CSR and employee engagement, local government and/or waste & recycling sectors would be a bonus.

How to apply

Please send the following to [email protected] with the subject 'Project Lead Application'.  

  1. A cover letter (max 1 side)
  2. CV (max 2 sides)
  3. A brief description of a commercial product or service you admire that delivers an environmental benefit (max 50 words)
