An exciting new opportunity has arisen within our team. Leicestershire County Council is looking to recruit a Senior Officer with significant experience in the Haulage sector (ideally Waste Haulage) to manage a small team of staff focusing on managing and developing our Waste Haulage service.
The County Council is constantly looking to innovate and deliver a commercial approach to provide the best value service for its residents. For example, we have insourced the operation and haulage of 13 Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) and one Waste Transfer Station (WTS) following the end of a contract with an external provider.
As the successful candidate, you will become an essential member of the Contracts and Haulage Operations Team. You will manage the Haulage Operations service and ensure that the haulage service for our directly operated HRWCs and WTS delivers value for money. You will also manage numerous high value haulage and waste contracts and play a key role in the development and operation of our planned new WTS at Bardon.
A proactive, flexible, ‘can do’ attitude, a commercial approach and good financial management and problem-solving skills are key attributes. You will also be responsible for supporting and delivering innovative opportunities to optimise efficiency savings and develop our services in the future.

  • Candidates should have a relevant degree or equivalent experience.
