Eurowag was founded in 1995 by Czech entrepreneur and philanthropist Martin Vohánka, shortly after he graduated from school. Martin has successfully developed and scaled the business through purpose-driven leadership. Today, Eurowag is a leading pan-European integrated payment and mobility platform focused on the commercial road transportation ("CRT") industry.

Eurowag's innovative solutions make life simpler for small and medium businesses in the CRT industry across Europe through its unique combination of payments solutions, seamless technology, a data-driven digital eco-system and high-quality customer service. The company's strategy has been developed to democratise the on-road mobility industry through a technological revolution. In October 2021, the company was listed on the London Stock Exchange and has recently entered the FTSE 250. The company's workforce is 1,000 strong, with 18 offices across Europe.

At Eurowag, sustainability has been made a core part of the business' purpose: to create financial & technological solutions for the benefit of industry, society and the environment. In 2021, the company formalised its sustainability strategy, setting out the foundations for its environmental, social and governance (ESG) commitments and targets. At the core of its strategy, the business is focused on helping its customers compete, grow and prosper in a low-carbon future. The strategy includes specific priorities covering carbon reduction, inclusion, and employer of choice amongst European tech.

Recognising the growing importance of sustainability to the culture and future success of the business, Eurowag has made this role and function part of the Group Strategy team, reporting to the Chief Strategy Officer. This person will direct and oversee sustainability strategy and governance, leading the ESG Executive Committee and serving as the leading subject matter expert in advising and supporting the Board and ExCo on the ESG agenda.

This role will be responsible for raising the profile and performance of Eurowag, directing and coordinating delivery against its commitments and demonstrating the company's credentials as an FTSE-listed sustainability leader in its sector (as of October 2021).

The successful candidate will:

  • Be an independent, self-starter and collaborator who can build strong, trusted relationships and influence others without the need for direct reporting lines

  • Have exceptional influencing and listening skills with a proven ability to influence multiple stakeholders across global and senior levels of the organisation

  • Be flexible and adaptable enough to work in environments undergoing change

  • Enjoy working in a fast-paced, agile, lean, no-nonsense, and entrepreneurial working environment
