“WRAP has been the opportunity to work with a passionate and dedicated team of individuals who are all committed to making a positive impact on the environment and society.”
As a Project Manager supporting our International team, my typical day involves planning, organising, and overseeing projects such as the India and South Africa Plastic Pacts and World Economic Forum-funded projects for Ghana, Vietnam, Pakistan, and Maharashtra in India. This includes setting project goals, developing plans, confirming resources, assigning tasks to team members, monitoring project progress, and ensuring that projects are completed on time and within budget.
To be successful in my role, I need to use a range of skills, including project management, leadership, communication, problem-solving, and time management. Over time – I’ve been with WRAP for just over a year - I hope to continue to develop my skills and knowledge within the sustainability field and take on more responsibility within WRAP.
I was initially attracted to the organisation because of its reputation for being a leader in the field of sustainability and resource efficiency. I was also drawn to WRAP's commitment to making a positive impact on the environment and society as a whole.
One of the biggest highlights of working for WRAP has been the opportunity to work with a passionate and dedicated team of individuals who are all committed to making a positive impact on the environment and society.
We work to promote sustainability and resource efficiency through a range of projects and initiatives, so our days are full of variety and fulfilling work.
And we take our work home with us too – in a good way! Since working at WRAP, I've gained valuable knowledge about reducing food waste and have applied this to my personal life by implementing meal planning and being more conscious about the food I purchase and how I store it. In addition, I've extended this eco-friendly mindset by reusing jars of sauce, opting for thrifted clothes, and using sustainable products whenever possible.
