Did you know printer ink cartridges can be recycled for money?! Think-Inks have helped raise over £1 million to charities and organisations for used printer ink cartridges they’ve recycled with us in the last 8 years.

 

Think-Inks are looking for someone to join the Fundraising Team, to help teach others about the exciting fundraising initiative, that not only helps them receive donations but also benefits the environment!

Do you care about the impact plastic waste has on the environment? Are you interested in being part of a team that helps reduce landfill waste whilst generating donations for a wide range of local and national charities? Do you have telephone-based sales experience? Are you looking for a different ‘sales’ challenge? Could you convince people to put their used inks into a box instead of the bin, so we can collect them for recycling and help a charity too?

 

Think-Inks are a national company that are small enough to care about the person and large enough to offer a rewarding career! Interested?...if so then this might be the role for you. Check out our website to see more about what we do – www.think-inks.uk.
