Local authority waste services are commencing a period of major transformation as the government develops legislation to deliver a new Resources and Waste Strategy; at the same time as legislative changes are requiring amendments to the technical solutions procured under the existing Waste Private Finance Initiative (PFI) contract to meet the BATc (Best Available Techniques conclusions) amendments to the waste permits issued by the Environment Agency; all of which feeds into the delivery of our waste services.

The Waste Projects Manager role is accountable to the Waste Programme Manager, for providing technical expertise to support and manage the effective implementation of projects for the County Council’s Waste Service so that they are delivered to the highest standards, in line with relevant legislation and the Waste PFI contract.

The role is in place to support the successful delivery and project management of the strategic infrastructure capital projects and wider strategic and specialist projects as directed by the Head of Service Waste Management.

Work collaboratively with partners and other stakeholders at a senior level to deliver strategic and specialist projects as a key support to both the Waste Programme Manager, and the Head of Service in order to deliver the Council and Directorate’s objectives, whilst also representing the County Council at a local, national and regional scale where required.

Delivery of waste services to both revenue and capital budgets, with control and management of budgets, responsibilities for specific delegated projects.

About you

Your ability to influence our strategic direction and communicate with a range of stakeholders and teams will be essential in this role.

You will need to work closely with the rest of the waste services team to design and deliver an integrated work programme. Collaboration, enthusiasm, energy, determination, and an attention to detail are a must, as well as a focus on delivering value for money and getting it right first time for our stakeholders.

You will be responsible for ensuring that health, safety, and wellbeing are at the heart of everything we do and deliver. This role will include the line management of a small project management team who you will help to maximise their potential.

Please ensure your covering letter is no more than 2 pages.
