This is an interim opportunity to join the leadership team within the Environment directorate at a high profile East London Council. As Head of Waste Services you’ll be working to the director of the wider service area, supporting a management team implementing a fresh service-wide improvement plan aligned with the bold vision the council has established for the coming years. Fundamentally the role will suit a waste expert with council experience who enjoys service redesign and improvement, and has a track record to manage this service with minimum disruption as it changes.

The council is conscious that this particular area plays a key role in the perception of the borough to residents and potential residents.

Your application for the role will demonstrate:

  • Considerable experience in the processes and procedures of waste services and management
  • The ability to develop the potential of a large budget and manage risks and services effectively
  • Previous experience of performance management across a department to benchmark the service and demonstrate improvement

You’ll be a natural manager with a good grasp of effective resource allocation, and be willing to embrace a modern philosophy of delivering council services.

If you have the background needed, and are galvanized by the kind of challenge outlined, we want to hear from you as soon as possible. Please send a CV and covering note asap by clicking on Apply – shortlisting will begin from Thursday 22nd June.
