Projects Officer

Do you have experience in project management and an interest in tackling environmental issues?

This role will be responsible for undertaking projects for Joint Waste Solutions, the team that delivers recycling improvement work on behalf of a partnership that includes all of Surrey’s councils and manages a £14m waste and street cleaning collection contract on behalf of four partners.

You will deliver a variety of projects to reduce waste and increase recycling across Surrey. For example, this could involve trialing initiatives to increase food recycling; delivering targeted interventions to reduce contamination in recycling; or finding partner organisations to work with to promote food waste reduction. You’ll also evaluate the success of initiatives and work with colleagues within Joint Waste Solutions and across the wider Surrey Environment Partnership to identify opportunities for further improvements.

The successful candidate will have experience of successful project delivery, preferably in waste management or the wider environmental sector. You’ll also need to demonstrate experience of effective partnership working and the ability to work flexibly and under your own initiative.

Full details of the role and person specification are included in the role profile, along with an outline of the responsibilities of the Projects Team.

The role will be based at our Woking office, but we are working flexibly and there will be the ability to work from home for some of the time.

Benefits include a minimum of 24 days annual leave, Local Government Pension Scheme, free parking and lifestyle rewards benefits.
