What You'll Do

Cisco is looking for a visionary, experienced leader who will lead key aspects of our circular economy transformation. You will be working collaboratively to set strategy, identify and align new opportunities, build business cases, and implement new operating models. You will build and manage strong cross-functional relationships at all levels of the business to enable a successful circular economy program for all of Cisco.

You'll lead programs every single day to support and drive circular economy projects throughout Cisco, that require data analytics, metrics, work plans and relationship building. You will hold functional teams accountable for their individual contributions to the overall program. In addition to leading and aligning internal cross-functional teams, this role will involve external engagement with customers, partners, suppliers, and collaboration partners.

Who You'll Work With

When you work with us, youll be part of a highly empowered collaborative team who's passionate about our sustainability vision: what's good for the world and good for business have never been more connected. We are a team of change agents with strong business analytical skills passionate about opportunities to be a catalyst for our customers' transformations.

Who You Are

You are an ambitious person who has experience and real passion for sustainability, particularly circular economy. You are not afraid to take ownership of big, groundbreaking projects that involve calculated risks to the business. You can expertly manage and drive our key Circular Economy projects that are in-flight and also help bring new Circular Economy Projects to life.

Our Minimum Requirements For This Role

  • At a minimum, we expect you to have an MBA or other Master's-level degree (Sustainability or Environmental-related programs are preferred but not required) and 10+ years experience in program or project management.
  • You should have demonstrated success in leading complex cross-functional teams, building business cases, influencing without authority, change management, and supervising others.

Who We Are

#WeAreCisco, where each person is unique, but we bring our talents to work as a team and make a difference powering an inclusive future for all.

We embrace digital, and help our customers implement change in their digital businesses. Some may think were old (36 years strong) and only about hardware, but were also a software company. And a security company. We even invented an intuitive network that adapts, predicts, learns and protects. No other company can do what we do you cant put us in a box!

But Digital Transformation is an empty buzz phrase without a culture that allows for innovation, creativity, and yes, even failure (if you learn from it.)

Day to day, we focus on the give and take. We give our best, give our egos a break, and give of ourselves (because giving back is built into our DNA.) We take accountability, bold steps, and take difference to heart. Because without diversity of thought and a dedication to equality for all, there is no moving forward.

So, you have colorful hair? Dont care. Tattoos? Show off your ink. Like polka dots? Thats cool. Pop culture geek? Many of us are. Passion for technology and world changing? Be you, with us!
