Buckinghamshire County Council

On 01 November 2018, it was announced by the government that the five councils in Buckinghamshire will become a single unitary authority in April 2020.  This is an exciting opportunity for all the councils in the county to come together to build a brand new council for Buckinghamshire, building on the best experience and expertise of the five current councils.  We are developing plans with our District Council colleagues to build a new Unitary Council that is ambitious in its outlook, provides Buckinghamshire residents with simpler ways to access services that they need, and makes best use of public money.  Any changes made to the structure of local authorities in the county may affect council employees in the future.  Therefore, the five councils have agreed to restrict applications to this position to current employees of the five councils for a period of seven days from 31st January 2019 to 7th February 2019.  External candidates are welcome to submit their application at any point; however, if a current employee applies during this seven day period, their application will be assessed prior to the council considering applications from external candidates.

In this role, you’ll be responsible for co-ordinating and undertaking enforcement investigations relating to the use of Buckinghamshire County Council’s Household Recycling Centres, providing authoritative professional advice on matters including fly-tipping and use and interpretation of the Waste Access and Acceptance Policy.  You’ll also support other colleagues in the Waste Management Team, ensuring that work related to delivering the Household Recycling Centre service changes are implemented to a professional standard, within appropriate timescales.  This work will include proactively contributing to policy development, publicity work, including social media work, press releases and other waste prevention strategies.

This is a fixed term role which is envisaged to be 12 months from date of appointment.

With Knowledge of regulatory and technical aspects of Fly-Tipping enforcement and waste management, you’ll have experience of negotiating with defendants & witnesses, consultants and other organisations at a senior level to secure positive outcomes.

Ideally educated to degree level or with equivalent experience, you’ll possess good organisational, planning, and ICT skills. A professional qualification or equivalent together with membership or a relevant professional body would be desirable.
