West Devon Borough and South Hams District Councils are shared authorities with an exciting, innovative and forward-looking delivery model. The two Councils are continually striving to provide more efficient and effective services for our customers. For waste and associated services, this involves a number of high profile and time critical projects relating to the delivery of the domestic and trade waste services. We therefore have a 1 year opportunity starting with immediate effect.
We are offering an opportunity to a customer-focused individual who welcomes change and can drive forward and shape new ways of service delivery in waste, recycling, street cleansing, and public toilet cleaning services. In return, we can offer flexible working in an environment where innovation, challenge and efficiency are key aspects within a small but dedicated team.
As a Specialist, you should ideally be qualified to degree level, or equivalent or have a sound knowledge of waste management practices. You will have a wide range of previous experience including domestic/commercial waste collections, project management and contract performance and administration. Most importantly, you will embrace change and challenge accepted practice.
If you have significant experience in waste and can demonstrate a clear understanding of our services and the methodology for improvements then this opportunity may be for you.
