An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Waste Officer to join the waste & environmental contracts team on a full time and permanent basis. This is a great opportunity for candidates looking to progress a career within a fast paced and challenging service area, one which touches the lives of all citizens living in, working in and visiting Tewkesbury Borough.

In this role, you will ensure that waste management and environmental issues are delivered across the Borough including waste minimisation and recycling campaigns. You will support the Service Manager for waste, recycling, street cleansing and grounds maintenance, to meet corporate and departmental aims and objectives and monitor waste management and other front line related contracts as appropriate, to deliver environmentally beneficial and safe services.

You will lead and support various projects to improve the Borough’s waste reduction and recycling performance while working in an enthusiastic team committed to making a difference.
