Chiltern and South Bucks District Councils

Chiltern and South Bucks District Councils have successfully embraced the challenges of modern government through taking a progressive partnership approach to offering services. We are proud of what we have achieved through our joint working and we are passionate about delivering excellent services to our customers every day and meeting the needs of our local communities.

Our staff survey results consistently tell us that our employees think this is a great place to work and that they are proud to work for the Councils. An Investor in People (IiP) Assessor commented that, "staff are incredibly positive about their work for the Council, committed to its success and have a high level of satisfaction".

We are looking for a confident and experienced Waste Contract Manager to work within the Joint Waste Team on a full-time basis. We provide a waste service to the residents of Chiltern, Wycombe and South Bucks District Councils and manage two waste contracts. This post will focus on the management of the waste and cleansing contract for Chiltern and Wycombe District Councils, but you will also work collaboratively with your colleague who manages the South Bucks District Council.

The Joint Waste Team has an overall responsibility for delivering waste services to around 140,000 households and this post plays a crucial role within this exciting three-way dynamic.

You will have the proven ability to manage waste contracts effectively and will have excellent problem-solving skills. You will need to demonstrate an ability to manage a team with a positive and supportive management style and excellent communication skills are a must.

While this post will have responsibility for managing the Chiltern/Wycombe contract, it will also provide cover for the Waste Contract Manager for the South Bucks service, in order to provide resilience for the busy team. This post will be based at the Chiltern District Council Offices at Amersham, but we operate agile working and will require flexibility and an occasional presence at the South Bucks offices at Capswood or Wycombe District Offices at High Wycombe.

As Waste Contract Manager, you will ensure the effective management of the Chiltern/Wycombe contract in line with relevant legislation, regulations and the policies and priorities of the Councils and you will provide support for the Waste Services Manager.
