PROJECT MANAGER

ABOUT NATOORA

We are a fast-growing company with a clear mission: to revolutionise the food system.

We deliver radically seasonal produce to over 1500 restaurants in London, New York, Paris & Copenhagen - we count among our customers some of the world’s most forward-thinking chefs.

We also engage directly with home cooks through our Natoora delivery app, as well as in our stores and concessions, and online via Ocado, Waitrose and Monoprix. We are actively seeking to change the way people understand fresh produce by putting flavour and biodiversity back onto the shelves.

Be part of a more meaningful and responsible food system that preserves seed varieties, growing techniques & traditions that are threatened by modern industrial farming and supermarket culture.

ABOUT THE JOB 

To further our mission of leading a revolution in the food system, we are looking for a Project Manager to coordinate some of our strategic and transformational projects globally with an initial focus on sustainable packaging projects.

With proven experience in managing projects throughout their entire lifecycle, you will have oversight of the planning and execution of key initiatives that span multiple areas of the company and be instrumental in the strategic evolution of our business.

Your responsibilities will include:

  • Initiating projects: checking feasibility, working out budgets and resources
  • Planning: setting goals, defining roles, scope, dependencies, and timelines
  • Executing projects: coordinating the work of the project team, managing stakeholders as needed
  • Identifying and mitigating risks to ensure delivery is on time
  • Monitoring and controlling: tracking the project's progress, reporting regularly to management on time, budget, roadblocks, risks & managing change requests
  • Closing: evaluating successes and challenges to enhance learning

ABOUT YOU

Our ideal candidate will be extremely organised and an outstanding communicator at different levels of the organisation. You will possess a growth mindset and be able to demonstrate remarkable work ethics, empathy and a passion for achieving results. The ability to enjoy the challenges of a fast growing business will be a key asset to be able to succeed in the role.

  • Experience in project management, with demonstrated success in managing full life cycle of a project and familiar with project management tools
  • PMP, Prince2, or similar Certification is a plus
  • Experience with Lean, Kanban, or Six Sigma methodologies is beneficial
  • Excellent organisational and communication skills
  • Flexible working approach in a 24/7 business

PERKS  

  • Subsidised lunch - made with the same seasonal produce we supply to chefs
  • Cost-price fruit & vegetables - we don’t profit from sales to our own team members
  • Your birthday off*
  • Kitchen stocked from our own growers and producers - including Estate Dairy milk and butter - as well as from our Spa Terminus neighbours Monmouth & Little Bread Pedlar

*Once you’ve hit the 6 month mark
