Job Description

About the company:

Established in 2005, we design and manufacture furniture for use in commercial spaces such as offices and retail environments supplied globally. We have grown significantly in recent years with a showroom in London and Chicago with a manufacturing facility in Elland where they produce their range of furniture which is 100% unique to NaughtOne and are now part of one of the largest brand groups in the world.

From day one, designing and making sustainable products has been a part of NaughtOne. From the first sketch to the last stitch, we do our best to reduce our environmental impact. Where ever possible, we make our products locally working with sustainably sourced materials and local, responsible suppliers to reduce our impact on the environment. We design our products to endure time, trends and use. Every product we make across the globe comes with a 10-year warranty.

Our environmental certifications and health product declarations help our customers to deliver healthier, more sustainable spaces and achieve their project goals. We help customers properly recycle products at the end of their life. Our Take-Back Programme repurposes components, reducing the amount of raw materials we use.

This is just the start. With every product that we design and make, our commitment grows and so does our desire to help everyone create a more sustainable future.

About the role:

Are you a Sustainability Manager that is passionate about making a genuine difference? Are you ready to belong to a team with a DNA of sustainability, that are committed to driving their business to the next level of responsibility? Do you want to be empowered to identify and implement the changes that will make a positive impact within our own industry and wider, raising the bar on expectation and achievability globally? Then NaughtOne are ready for you too!


You will be responsible for developing and implementing the company’s sustainability strategy guided by Miller Knoll’s overarching sustainability goals.

You’ll be responsible for setting key targets and communicating these to customers but also engaging with departments across the business to ensure they are aware of the strategy and what role they play in delivering that.

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone with relevant product sustainability industry experience who’s looking to join an aspirational and exciting business with a family feel whilst having the support of a much larger global brand.

Expected qualifications and experience:

You will be passionate about making a genuine difference, live and breathe sustainable practise and have a desire and ability to lead and educate on this subject. It’s expected you will have experience of carbon foot printing, waste reduction, plastics reduction and renewable materials, which is where your practical experience and relevant environmental degree will come into their own. Ideally, you’ll have gained experience within the manufacturing environment or a related product-based industry with experience in a business who operate in different geographies.

Prior experience having implemented and adapting a strategy would be extremely beneficial, engaging with colleagues across the business and external suppliers to really bring the strategy to life.

Your proven project management skills will be required together with clear and concise communication skills and an ability to prioritise and manage your workload effectively.
