Hi, We’re Nexio Projects

At Nexio Projects, we firmly believe that everyone has the power to shape a more sustainable future. As a trusted advisor and partner to clients in a wide range of sectors, we simplify the challenges associated with sustainability and bring clarity and transparency to fuel bold action. We are facilitators and implementors at heart and strongly believe in the power of incremental change to shape a more sustainable future.

As a dynamic team, we form a motivated group of 50+ co-workers headquartered in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. We have cultivated a unique team spirit that is both impact-driven and purpose-oriented. We are humble, hardworking, and continuous learners.

Everyone’s voice can be heard and promoting an environment where maximum potential can be reached is at our core. Because of this, we continuously look for enthusiastic intrapreneurs who can do things without taking themselves too seriously.

Your typical week:
It’s Monday morning, and you’re returning to the office all refreshed from a great weekend. The week starts with our team meeting, where everyone reflects on the learnings of the past week and shares intentions for the coming one. This creates a space for alignment, awareness, and enthusiasm before stepping into the new week and allows everyone to get the latest updates from different departments while hearing about the organisation’s growth.

During the week, you can expect a close collaboration with the Sales Manager and the marketing team to act upon leads. What is this noise in the background? Your phone is ringing as clients wants an introductory pitch. The following week you will be attending events representing Nexio Projects while being in close collaboration with our partners and consultancy teams. Nexio Projects is moving from a start-up to a scale-up phase, and the sales team is growing and evolving rapidly.  This role will, therefore, be fast-paced and challenging but will come with a lot of excitement and provide enormous potential for growth and learning. 

The week closes off on Friday 5 pm with our gratitude award. This is the time to reflect on the successes and challenges of the week and, most importantly, to share what we’re grateful for. After this, our team is always keen to stay longer and enjoy some precious bonding time on the house over beer, wine, and ginger beer.
