Sourcing Manager

MOMENTUM RECYCLING

VACANCY ANNOUNCEMENT

Sourcing Manager, Denver Glass Recycling Plant

Description
Momentum Recycling helps communities move toward zero waste through its glass recycling plant in Denver, CO. As the only waste glass processor in the region, we currently accept and process waste glass from singlestream recycling operations along the Front Range. These activities have our plant operating at about 67% capacity, and we’d like to reach full capacity within a few years. We are looking for a great Sourcing Manager to help us achieve this goal.

Job Responsibilities
The Sourcing Manager will be primarily responsible for growing the volume of waste glass “feed stock” into our glass recycling plant. The successful candidate will employ a range of creative strategies for achieving this goal, but in general the work entails helping communities in the region that do not currently have glass recycling programs to start them. Success will be measured in terms of tons of waste glass added to our feed stock and diverted away from landfills.

As a secondary function, the Sourcing Manager will represent Momentum Recycling in the regional recycling community. The goal of this function is to establish and nurture the company’s relationships with local governments and other recycling entities, in pursuit of diverting more waste glass into the plant.

The Sourcing Manager reports directly to the CEO, and is a full time position with a minimum of 40 hours per week.

Compensation
The Sourcing Manager will be paid a combination of base salary and incentive bonuses, depending on experience. The company offers a full range of benefits, including health insurance, paid vacations and holidays, paid sick and bereavement time, and a retirement plan. Travel expenses are covered directly by the company.

Desired Qualifications

  • Strong work ethic.
  • Consultative sales experience.
  • Basic logistics experience.
  • Commitment to sustainability and a desire to contribute to the community in a positive way.
  • Professional written and oral communication skills.
  • A background in providing customer service.
  • Strong attention to detail.
  • Team player.

How to apply: Interested candidates should notify the apply directly to the CEO, at: 801-335-0334, x101; or john@momentumrecycling.com. Applicants will be asked to fill out an application, provide professional references and submit to a background check.
