It’s been a busy time for UNTHA UK, with the company growing 30%, year on year, since 2016. We’ve passed our 50th anniversary, marked our 10,000th shredder sold globally, headlined conferences, scooped awards, and got through the highs and lows of the pandemic, together.
We’ve been lucky enough to welcome some fantastic people into our business as well. A number of our staff have been with us more than a decade, but fresh faces join us on an ongoing basis too, as we strive to achieve even more for our customers.
To some people, these customers just shred ‘rubbish’. To us – and anyone who takes the time to look a little closer – they transform unwanted materials into valuable new resources, that can be reused, recycled, and used for energy recovery instead of fossil fuels. These businesses push for innovation all the time, particularly when it comes to preventing the creation of ‘waste’. And we do our best to oblige.
That means, with every new year that comes, we look ahead to what more we can achieve. And to keep progressing, we need fresh talent, ideas, knowledge, and hunger, to complement our existing expertise.
And now we’re looking for two more people to join UNTHA UK, with the creation of a duo of roles.
The completely new positions – business development executives – will prove core to the ongoing development of relationships in the increasingly crowded environmental sector. The successful candidates will work together to further raise the profile of UNTHA in the eyes of prospective customers, identify and nurture new opportunities, and fuel the future pipeline of the business.
“This is a very different type of role for UNTHA UK, and one that reflects how committed we are to customers,” comments managing director Marcus Brew. “While it is a very outward-facing position – getting to know organisations and understanding their requirements often way before they invest in a shredder – it’s not a traditional sales job.
“Instead, it’s about cultivating relationships – shredders are a high-value investment after all. So, these two new colleagues will continually explore evolving industry needs, the competitive landscape, and the increasingly individual requirements of the innovative businesses in our world.”
With a clear progression route already mapped out for these individuals, the roles would suit ambitious candidates with their eyes on a senior position, continues Marcus.
“As the management team becomes extremely busy – not least through continued growth – the support of our colleagues is critical,” he adds. “These two people particularly, will help us work more strategically. They could easily move into a client management position themselves within 2-3 years – I’d even hope they’d be bold and have their eye on the boardroom one day.”
