About our company and the position

Sustomi was founded in 2016 with the intention of helping people move towards a Zero Waste life. We believe that through practical, intentional products and through leading by example, we have the power to make a real difference. We strive for no-nonsense and transparency. All of our products are carefully designed and refined to keep in alignment with our values – to provide customers stylish, Zero Waste goods with a conscience.

Our collection has grown from the increasingly-popular beeswax food wraps to produce bags, metal straws and other reusable goods that replace single-use plastics in the kitchen and lunch box.

Based in Hobart, we manufacture our own beeswax wraps with the help of our team of 7.Over the past 2 years of business, our products have been sold in well over 100stores across Australia and a handful internationally. We believe we have not yet reached our full potential and are looking for a superstar production manager and operations coordinator who is self-motivated and ready to be a leader for our Zero Waste future and to grow with us.

The job:

Our production coordinator plays an integral role in keeping the shelves stocked as we grow. As a small business, the role is quite varied – a day may consist of supervising the wonderful production team in our Hobart workshop, ordering/stocking up supplies, liaising with suppliers, developing systems, enjoying the mindfulness of repetitive tasks, working on unique projects and most importantly appreciating good food, music and chats with the team!
