Cefic, the European Chemical Industry Council, is both the forum and voice of the European chemical industry. It aims to maintain and develop a prosperous chemical industry in Europe by promoting the best possible economic, social and environmental conditions to bring benefits to society.
The chemical industry is a € 500+ billion industry, providing over 1 million direct jobs and nearly 2.5 million indirect jobs in Europe. The chemical industry is the “Industry of Things”. The industry's products are essential to 95% of everything manufactured: hygiene, health, mobility, construction, computers and electronics all rely on the chemical industry. The sector is also critical to meeting future needs, such as developing energy sources or managing scarce resources. The chemical industry is essential for achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Cefic is located in Brussels to represent the industry vis-à-vis EU institutions and involve member federations and companies in European advocacy. We employ more than 150 people.
For its Product Stewardship department, Cefic is looking for a (m/f): Product Stewardship Manager (Microplastics and Polymers).

This is an important file for the European Chemical Industry given the increased public concerns about the use and disposal of plastic.

When regulating plastics, the authorities need to ensure that the environment is properly protected now, and for future generations, whilst allowing industry to produce plastic materials for the benefit of society. As PS Manager Microplastics and Polymers, you will be responsible for ensuring that industry’s knowledge and experience in this field is fully taken into account by the authorities, with the purpose of striking the right balance between the benefits provided by plastics and the protection of the environment. You will report to the Product Stewardship Director.
The successful candidate will be an experienced professional who demonstrates the following experience and competencies:
