🔭 Our mission & vision

Job Description

At Too Good To Go, we have an ambitious goal: to inspire and empower everyone to fight food waste.

As the world’s largest food waste-fighting app, we connect stores that have unsold, surplus food with consumers who buy and enjoy it. Our community of 67 million users has saved more than 173 million meals from going to waste across 17  countries, but there’s still a lot more we want to achieve.

Globally, more than a third of food is wasted, and climate experts agree that combating food waste is one of the most important things we can do to address the climate crisis. For us, it’s simple: the bigger we get, the better placed we’ll be to make a huge difference.

Your mission:

As we continue to grow, so does our need to ensure our fellow Waste Warriors have the tools and support they need to thrive throughout their career in Too Good To Go. 

We are therefore looking for a People Operations Partner to join our global People & Culture team, to further improve and professionalise the way we organise and align our people processes in our Cluster South countries (France, Italy, Portugal and Spain).

You will become part of and work closely with the global People & Culture teams and our People & Culture in the Cluster South countries, a team constantly evolving to meet the requirements of a fast-paced business in high growth.

Reporting to the Director of Global People Operations, you will divide your time between the operational engine room and development projects benefiting our Waste Warriors. Few days are the same, but overall your tasks would revolve around:

Further developing global and scalable people operations processes to support the annual employee life cycle and drive business value

Ensuring compliance in employee relations and data handling at cluster level 

Driving implementation of people operations processes at cluster and country level, ensuring efficient governance of local payroll, employee handbook, insights and data

Partnering with country People & Culture to continuously improve the way we run our processes and supporting the teams on good practices

Managing relationships with key People & Culture vendors

Project managing or contributing to prioritised initiatives that help raise the bar on the people agenda in Too Good To Go

Your profile: 

You have relevant experience within HR or organisational change, likely in an operational or consultant role. You like getting things done, but stay curious on ways to do things smarter

You are experienced in employee relations and people operations processes in countries like France, Italy, Portugal or Spain

You are motivated by exploring, learning and finding solutions, and take pride in implementing them with high attention to detail and deadlines

You are a good communicator who understands what it takes to create crisp and clear messages, and provide excellent service across geographies, cultures and to all levels of the organisation

You are great at getting your message across using slides, and you enjoy taking an extra round on a message or communication piece in order to get it right

You know your way around spreadsheets, creating structure and insights from data

You have more than a flair for IT, and strive to stay current with what goes on in the HR tech world

You are a true organisational talent and can easily prioritise competing tasks. You love to switch constantly between administrative, people-oriented and creative work

Your English skills are excellent, both written and spoken. Additional languages can be a plus

If you have a specific field of expertise or particular interest beyond the list above, we would love to hear about it. Examples could be Compensation and Benefits, analytics, working with KPIs or OKRs within the people function or workforce planning

Our Values:

We fight together: food waste is a big beast to fight. We can do it if we fight together as Waste Warriors with no ego. We believe in a #oneteam

We raise the bar: we always push for more. We work smart, smash barriers and elevate one another

We keep it simple: our ambitions are bold but our solutions are simple

We build a legacy: we’re proud of the change we’re driving

We care: we always look out for each other. Caring is also about the way we do business. We do the right thing

What we offer: 

A rare opportunity to work in a social impact company (and certified B Corporation!) where you get to wake up every day knowing you’re achieving positive change

An open company culture where you have the independence and room to unleash your creativity

A strong team culture where successes are celebrated together

Space to develop your ideas and your career in a multicultural team, in a fast growth company

A unique, challenging and fun place to work
