To apply for this job please visit toogoodtogo.org.

At Too Good To Go, we have an ambitious goal: to inspire and empower everyone to fight food waste.

Why do we need to do that? Because 1/3 of the food produced in the world is wasted. And that has a huge impact on the health of our planet, 8% of greenhouse gas emissions come from food waste!

As the world’s largest food waste-fighting app, we connect stores that have unsold, surplus food with consumers who buy and enjoy it. But we’re more than an app: we are a certified B Corporation and our mission is to inspire and empower everyone to take action against food waste, so we’re doing all we can to create educational tools, make our knowledge as accessible as possible, find new business solutions and even change legislation to reduce food waste.

We’re growing fast, with our community of 37 million users in 15 countries saving more than 73 million meals from going to waste – that’s more than 180,000 tonnes of CO2e saved! But there’s still a lot more we want to achieve.

That means we’re looking for talented people with diverse skills and backgrounds to add to our rapidly growing team. That is where you come in: we’re looking for an exceptional Key Account Manager to join us in our London office.

Your mission:

You will play a pivotal role in the growth of Too Good To Go UK and the fight against food waste by using your experience in the Food To Go sector to develop and grow partnerships with prominent retailers in the food and beverage industry, focusing initially on popular high street coffee and bakery brands.

Your primary responsibility is to drive the growth and optimisation of existing Key Account partnerships, focusing on increasing our footprint (active stores) across all sites within a partner’s portfolio and saving more food from being wasted. You will support these accounts through their roll out, and continue to look for ways to strengthen and grow the relationship, building rapport with key stakeholders across their business, and across franchise networks. Where applicable, you’ll engage these groups with the Too Good To Go mission and aid further expansion. Reporting to the Key Account Lead responsible for the On The Go sector, you will collaborate closely with the Success team, in particular the Key Partner Manager, as well as colleagues across  Key Accounts, Marketing and Independent Sales.

  • Cross functional working: be the voice internally for your key partners, working with the Movement, Marketing and PR to ensure we’re maximising joint growth opportunities
  • Contributing to the UK Key Account strategy and supporting international cooperation across global key chain opportunities.
