Business Associate

WHO WE ARE:

Entocycle is a mission-driven company revolutionising how we feed animals. We are developing the world’s most efficient and sustainable system to produce protein. Combining natural biological processes with deep technological innovation, we rapidly transform local food waste into protein-rich insects to feed animals.

PURPOSE:

As a business associate your mission is to help us deliver our business roadmap by undertaking key projects contributing to our commercial and operational success. It’s a diverse role where one minute you’ll be identifying new sources of food waste for us to feed our insects and the next you’ll be helping define which markets Entocycle should focus its efforts on. You’ll have a direct impact on major areas of our business and you’ll have the opportunity to further grow in one of these fields.

TASKS:

  • Undertake market deep-dives to help the commercial team better direct their efforts into markets such as Aquaculture, Animal Feed, Pet Feed and Human Consumption.

  • Research and identify new waste streams to feed our insects and establish relationships with key waste producers

  • Build and execute a regulations roadmap

  • Support the operations team to build an operational and quality assurance model that meets the requirements of the users and markets that Entocycle targets.

  • Take an ownership role of our grants, acting as the go-to person for day-to-day government relationships, reporting and scope changes.

  • Act as an ambassador for Entocycle, wearing the company’s mission on your sleeve at industry events and conferences.

  • Support the broader commercial and operations teams in delivery of their roadmap.

WE’D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU IF:

  • You have at least two years relevant work experience or have graduated from a strong business school

  • Your attention to detail is impressive, not least given the pace you work at

  • You have fantastic analytical skills, applying critical thinking and coming up with actionable recommendations

  • You can simplify the most complex topics in a way that anyone can understand

  • You’re hungry to learn and even hungrier to make an impact

  • You’re comfortable in ambiguity and like filling the gaps in our knowledge

  • You play well with others

  • You’re an engaging communicator whether one-on-one or in a room of people

  • You’re a self-starter, ready to take the initiative and drive radical improvement in your own and your team’s work

  • You’re driven to work in a fast-paced, ever-changing start-up environment, and can organise & prioritise your work independently

THE ENTOCYCLE WAY:

At Entocycle we have a set of cultural values that translate into our approach to work:

  • We give a shit about the planet, our people and our customers

  • We are brave, bold and courageous. Always

  • We are hungry, foolish and humble

  • We commit to excellence and expect that from each other

  • We have the freedom to make decisions, acting in the company’s best interests

  • We have a good time… all the time
