This is an excellent opportunity to join our Waste & Resource Management Team as a Project Support Officer. We are responsible for the management of 14 former landfill sites, where we must minimise environmental impacts, protect human health and safety and comply with the law.
Your role will involve procuring and supervising specialist contractors to carry out environmental monitoring and day-to-day management of the sites. You will help to audit their work, interpret monitoring data and recommend improvements.
In addition, you will help monitor the contractor managing our Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs), making sure they fulfil their contract conditions and statutory waste disposal obligations. This will include dealing with customer enquiries, so you’ll need to be focused on delivering excellent customer service.
Educated to degree level or equivalent in a relevant waste or environmental subject, you will have strong communication skills (spoken and written). You should be a team player who is equally comfortable working unsupervised when required. You will hold a valid driving licence and be able to meet the travel requirements of the role.
You’ll be assisting with an important part of our waste strategy, and we’ll give you all the training and ongoing professional development you need to succeed. We also offer a local government pension scheme, competitive salary, flexible working, family friendly policies and more.
