Job Summary:


Salary range: £27,009 - £31,155 per annum
Work location: London
Hours per week: 36
Contract type: Temporary up to 24 months
Closing date: 17th July 2022
Interview date: Week commencing 25th July 2022

About Us:


Turn your environmental passion into practical action.


In Kensington and Chelsea, we put local people and local businesses at the heart of decision-making, working in partnership with them to provide quality services that are responsive, effective and efficient. Waste reduction and recycling targets are a key area of focus, as achieving high participation both saves the council money and contributes to our climate emergency goals. Communicating our message, however, can sometimes be a challenge in this diverse and densely populated borough – which is where you come in.

The Role:


In this frontline role, you’ll be responsible for monitoring and increasing the recycling rate within an area. You’ll get to know your patch inside and out and will engage directly with residents (e.g. through doorstepping) to help them understand recycling issues, increase recycling and tackle recycling contamination. In addition, you’ll monitor collection crews to make sure the right collections are made to the right standards. The role also involves making presentations to community groups and gathering data on recycling performance. It’s a practical way of sharing your passion for sustainability and environmental protection. And, if you’re looking to work in the environmental sector, it’s an ideal starter role.


Please refer to the Job Description for more information

About You:


A good knowledge of waste reduction, sustainability and recycling issues is essential, as is a genuine commitment to protecting the environment. As there’s a strong customer-facing element, you should expect to be out and about around the borough, ready to knock on doors, engage with residents and solve practical problems. You’ll need to be energetic, personable and persistent, and ready to work with limited supervision. Some early starts, as well as evening and weekend work, will be required, with time off in lieu. Along with good organisation, the ability to compile data and write reports is important.


In return, you can look forward to a package that includes a competitive salary, a high-quality pension scheme and generous annual leave plus bank holidays.
