Why work at Ecometrica?
You will be working for a leading sustainability company with global reach and the recipient of numerous awards and accolades.
We value diversity — in backgrounds and in experiences. Climate change is a universal concern, and we need people from all backgrounds and swaths of life to help build the future of sustainability. Our team is empathetic, caring, and supportive. We are deliberate and self-reflective about the kind of team and culture that we are building, seeking people that are not only strong in their own aptitudes but care deeply about supporting each other’s growth.
We are also very proud of the working environment and ethic we have honed over the years. We provide a flexible approach to working within a very collaborative “one team” environment. We don’t stick to rigid job descriptions; whilst we all have our main responsibilities, our employees find themselves collaborating across the various areas of the company. We are doers, we all muck in and do what needs to be done. We work hard and are very driven, but also actively support a mutually beneficial work/life balance.
We offer a generous employee benefits package following three months of successful employment including:
- 27 paid annual vacation days plus 8 statutory holidays per year (a total of 35 days every year from day one and we encourage employees to use them up as we are serious about ensuring our employees have a good work/life balance).
- Flexible working hours, including hybrid working approach to work from home and office as well the option to choose to work a compressed 4 day week.
- Health insurance
- Retirement savings plan with generous employer contributions
- Lovely, modern offices with good amenities in great locations.
“We recruit top-level graduates from leading universities with skills in statistical methods and communication. Our work environment encourages critical thinking and careful interpretation of data and assumptions.”
Ecometrica Chairman, Dr. Richard Tipper
We want people who will thrive within an SME environment. Yes, we want high performing people who are kind, empathetic, respectful, responsive and good at actively building effective professional working relationships, but we need people who have an entrepreneurial spirit and think commercially; people who are comfortable coming forward with great ideas of how to continue evolving our products, no matter what your role is, in a way that will fit our clients’ needs not just today but, in the years to come.
You do not need to be an extrovert, just happy to have a chat and share your good ideas. We also need people who like to have a laugh and some fun along the way, who are not put off by setbacks but have the tenacity to stick with things to find not just a solution, but the best solution by collaborating with team members across the business and actively listening.
We want to hear your ideas but for you to understand that not all ideas will be taken on, so the emotional intelligence and ability to understand different peoples’ roles and perspectives is vital. We are all here working together for the success of the company. Working this way also means that the on-the-job training and work experiences we offer are top notch. We want to take the skills you have and develop them in a way that not only helps the company but prepares you for when you are ready to move onto the next chapter of your career, whether that is with us or somewhere else.
Being in the business we are, we also take our own climate change efforts very seriously, and as with most things, tend to punch above our weight in our efforts to ensure we are doing all we can to minimise our own impact as a business.
