Project Manager/Advisor (m/f/d) in the field of Circular Economy, Waste Management and Resource Efficiency (full time with immediate effect) - Berlin location with home office option (within Germany).

Your working field

In March 2020, the European Union published the second action plan to promote the circular economy, putting the concept of circular economy at the centre of the European sustainability agenda. Modern waste management is an important part of this, as are approaches to change product design, the development of service and leasing-based business models, and the introduction of innovative policies to increase resource efficiency. In this field of activities, adelphi advises political decision-makers, companies and international organisations on the development of policy instruments, technology and knowledge transfer, and innovative concepts for a sustainable circular economy. Our work focuses on extended producer responsibility (EPR), the prevention of packaging waste, e-waste and marine litter, as well as the anchoring of circular economy principles in international supply chains (e.g. in the textile/clothing sector). Within the framework of our projects, we work with public and private clients and partner organisations.

adelphi's Circular Economy Programme is growing and is looking for talents to work on a growing number of projects in the fields of plastics, textiles and agri-food value chains. To support our Circular Economy Programme, we are currently looking for a full-time Manager/Advisor (m/f/n) to start as soon as possible.
