Vacancy: Commercial Assistant

Who are we?

Are you worried about the climate crisis and how it will impact our future? So are we.

That’s why we are on a mission to make sure every building on this planet is green.

Combatting the climate crisis is behind everything we do as a company. We are a small organisation but we strongly believe that a strong team with a clear purpose can make a real impact. Our mode of operation is do good and be good. We always strive to do good for the planet, and also be a good employer.

The built environment contributes almost 40 percent to global energy-related greenhouse gas emissions. We want to get that number down as quickly as possible.

We were founded to verify the impact of the built environment around the world, acting as an independent third party to validate sustainability claims made about buildings and ensure companies are genuinely making a positive difference. 

Our core service offering is EDGE certification. EDGE was created by the International Finance Corporation (IFC), member of the World Bank Group, and is an innovative green building standard and certification. EDGE makes it faster, easier and more affordable than ever before to build and brand green. EDGE is revolutionising green buildings around the world and enabling mass market transformation of the built environment.

As one of the two global certifiers, Sintali delivers EDGE certification in every country around the world, supporting the vision that every building on this planet can be green.

What is the role?

The commercial side of the business is working on three key objectives: growing international awareness of EDGE, setting up partnerships with financial institutions and local construction associations to drive market growth and supporting our channel partners to sell effectively.

We are seeking an individual to work directly with the Commercial Director to support the commercial side of the business, including marketing, sales, business development and partnerships.

This is a great opportunity for a candidate at an early stage in their career to gain experience in a variety of different commercial roles within a rapidly growing business. Candidates will gain hands on experience and mentoring in each segment.
