Image de présentation de l'article Jobs with a positive impact that are recruiting in 2021!

Over the past ten years, we have seen that jobs with a positive impact have been booming. These professions emerged in response to companies' commitment to social and environmental causes.

A job with a positive impact is one that contributes positively to society. This term is used in opposition to a profession that has no other objectives than the maximization of the company's profits. These jobs are therefore non-negligible sources for individuals with strong values, who want to have a job that makes sense!

This week, Meet My Job invites you to discover the positive impact jobs that are recruiting the most in 2021!

Finally, their role is to generally implement all the procedures and tools to improve the overall performance of their company's purchasing department.
