  • Collaborate with officers and waste teams to ensure the procurement of the vehicles, waste receptacles, staff and other resources are managed and complaint.

  • Chair and organise project management meetings and attend Council Programme board meetings.

  • Prepare and present data, in various formats, to key stakeholders, including senior officers, elected members and residents.

  • Liaise and co-ordinate a range of council teams, external partners and consultees on project matters.
