The Role

Ecocem is shaping the future of low carbon cement with ambitions to deliver a 50% cut in CO2 emissions from cement by 2030. We are looking for a driven and ambitious Business Analyst as we embark upon one of our biggest projects to date, the construction of our Terminal and Milling Operations at the Port of Los Angeles. This is a rare opportunity to join a business that can change the world for the better.

You will be working in a high-performing, entrepreneurial, talent-focused and innovation driven business.

This is a new role within the business, and it is critical to the success of Ecocem’s growth strategy. The role will have the opportunity to be one of the first feet on the ground as Ecocem delivers on our ambition of breaking new markets in the US and, in so doing, will make a seismic impact to Ecocem’s future, whilst being a key enabler of Ecocem’s Mission & Vision. This role will involve helping Ecocem manage, change, and plan in line with our ambitions and goals. It is a role for an ambitious, creative, and hardworking individual, and while it is a demanding, fast-paced role, it will be hugely rewarding.
