Team Method: Meet Sebastian

At Method, we aim to be forward-thinkers. That's why we hire the brightest minds and most inspiring sustainability advocates to help us reach our goals.

We'd like to introduce you to Team Method – starting with Sebastian, our Sydney Business Manager and newest team member.

Here we talk about how his experience in retail and hospitality has inspired him, his passion for change, and more.

How did you come to your role at Method?

After working in retail + hospitality for over 15 years, I wanted to join a company that has a bigger cause for change within our world. I'm happy to be working for a company that's focused on things other than just selling products and growing bottom lines.

What do you like best about your role?

I really like assisting clients in achieving their desire to implement a sustainability process in their workplace. It's rewarding to help them reduce landfill and support recycling.

What does your average work week look like?

Monday to Friday however I struggle not to do work on the weekends or take that call after hours as I see it as another opportunity to help make a difference. As the role is quite autonomous, it does give some flexibility around schedules & work life balance. Overall, it is a great life to do what I am doing.

Is there anything that would surprise people about what you do?

Initially I know a few people were surprised that I went from what I was doing to this role, but overall I don't think so. Once people see that I am at Method to educate, and make a bigger difference, they understand why I am doing what I am doing.

What’s your favourite thing about working at Method?

Creating change, finding solutions to people's needs, the product and definitely the team I work with. Everyone in the company is passionate and driven. Everyone is on the same driving path to make a difference outside of what we can do as an individual.

What’s your favourite thing about working as a Business Development Manager?

I love to see things work and find solutions to problems. The role also allows me to use my personal desire to achieve success and self-measure.

What do you like to do outside of work?

I have my own online business, I'm studying to become a psychologist, and I am a volunteer Youth Mentor for Wesley Mission so my life is pretty full. I love to be engaged in life and always doing something, as this helps me to grow and develop myself as an individual.

Who or what has inspired you to get to this point in your career?

Honestly, myself. I want to make a difference in the world and always do everything I can to be the best version of myself, both personally and professionally. I believe that what you put out into the world you get back.

Do you have any advice for someone who wants to work in your field?

Do it! If you have a true calling to do something that causes change for the greater good, I highly recommend it. It is rewarding and fulfilling – I love doing it everyday.

What’re you most excited about for your future with Method?

I'm excited for the opportunity to grow within in the company, and to help and support the business as it grows. Method is the market leader with Open Plan Recycling, and I can see great things for the future of the company.
