Do you want to lead a service that touches the lives of every resident and visitor to Plymouth? Do you have the skills and experience we need as part of our ongoing modernisation programme which aims to put the customer experience at the heart of our street scene and waste service delivery?

If so, we have two new opportunities within our senior management team for experienced leaders who will help shape and modernise the Street Scene and Waste Service.

Both roles will have responsibility for the strategic direction for the service and are critical to our ambitious plans for the service. Both post holders will work closely together to provide visible and cohesive leadership as the service continues improving and modernising in line with the Council’s priorities to be a welcoming, green and sustainable city that cares about the environment. It is an exciting time in Plymouth to bring innovation to this critical frontline service.

The focus of this role is to ensure that the core operational activities including household waste collection and disposal, commercial waste, street cleansing activities and services for the maintenance of our green spaces are carried out in line with legislation and are ready for the future.

This role offers you the opportunity to manage complex change projects, working with large budgets and delivering within a performance and safety focused culture ensuring that service productivity and efficiency is maximised.
