Waste management, environmental health, and sustainability initiatives – keeping Wiltshire green

Search & apply

Whether you’re in Waste Management or Sustainability, you’ll do something great, not just for local people, but for the planet too.

With the earth 1.2 degrees warmer than before the Industrial Revolution and devastating climate events, we have acknowledged a climate emergency – and action is crucial. That’s why we have committed to becoming carbon neutral as an organisation by 2030. But we can’t do it alone – we need you.

By mitigating climate challenges, we aim to protect the environment for future generations. And Wiltshire’s worth protecting – it’s full of natural beauty, historic sites, villages, habitats, and stunning wildlife. Our scenic county draws thousands of visitors, boosting the local economy and benefiting local people too. Then there’s the health benefits: green areas support the wellbeing of residents, combating anxiety, stress and depression.

In short, we want to preserve the beauty of our region but also restore ecological balance. Whether you’re an Enforcement Officer, a Climate Change Specialist or a Scientist, you’ll be looking after unique natural resources that are essential to Wiltshire’s future.

We know progression is important to you, but it can mean different things to different people. That’s why we’ve created a range of support tools where you can gain valuable experience, acquire new skills and embrace greater responsibilities. Each progression journey is bespoke, but we have defined some fundamental steps:

Entry-level: These are the first jobs, usually needing little experience or qualifications.

Mid-level: These require more experience and skills, often with added responsibilities.

Senior-level: These roles involve important decisions, team management, and major contributions to the organisation.

Leadership: Managing the organisation’s direction and strategy as managers or directors.

Side stepping: Switching roles or departments for diverse experience or for more education to progress or get qualifications.

Flexible working

People give their best when their job fits in with their lives. So, wherever possible, we offer flexible working. There are several options available:

  • Flexi-time scheme (for most roles)
  • Compressed or part-time hours
  • Job shares or term-time contracts where appropriate.

We’ve invested heavily in new tech to make flexible working possible.
