Introduction to Impactt
Impactt is a leading consultancy specialising in ethical trade, human rights and labour standards. We work with major brands, retailers, governments, academics and NGOs to maximise the positive impacts of global trade on workers and local communities. With offices in the UK, Bangladesh, China, India, and a wide network of consultants across Europe, Asia and Africa, we are internationally recognised for our change focused, practical and innovative approach. Impactt works with a wide range of stakeholders, from large retailers and government bodies to factory workers and local communities. Often the experiences and languages of these different stakeholders are so far apart that they do not ‘see’ or interact with each other. Impactt helps to bridge the gap and deliver real change on the ground.
Impactt is looking for an experienced, innovative, and consultative ethical trade/responsible sourcing expert with strong business development skills to support the implementation and execution of an ambitious China commercial strategy.
The China Business Development Manager will report to the China Director and work closely with the UK Commercial Manager. The candidate will be instrumental in the delivery of Impactt’s growth plan, positioning the company as the go-to-partner for ethical trade/responsible sourcing in China.
The successful candidate will be part of Impactt’s small and growing China team, which brings an exciting opportunity to influence the overall commercial and product development strategy for the country. Ideally, the candidate will have a proven track record in business development and a strong network in the ethical trade space that can be called upon to accelerate success.
The candidate will be expected to hit the ground running in building relationships and developing new leads and opportunities. Ideally the candidate will have experience of either working in the electronics, construction, or oil and gas sectors.
To be successful in this role you will need to be passionate about improving the lives of workers in global supply chains and ensuring customers’ requirements are understood and their expectations are met. The primary focus is China; however travel may occasionally be needed to other parts of Asia.
The role will involve developing new leads in the China market and strategies to attract new clients, and growing Impactt’s existing Fortune 500 client base to adopt our diversified portfolio of products and services for the China market, designed to improve the lives of workers and drive positive change for businesses.
