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 looing 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 Contract and Haulage Operations Team. You will manage the Haulage Operations service and ensure that the haulage service for our directly operated HWRCs and WTS delivers value for money. You will also manage numerous high value haulage and waste contracts. A proactive, flexible ‘can do’ attitude, a commercial approach and good financial management 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. You will have extensive experience in haulage service management and service development. Your knowledge will cover statutory requirements, policies and procedures that are associated with operating a haulage service.
Leicestershire County Council is committed to Smarter Working and understands the benefits of supporting employees to manage their work and life balance, whilst meeting the needs of the service. We are supportive of flexible working and candidates who wish to discuss this or any other aspect of the role should contact Sue Smith, Team Manager – Contracts and Haulage Operations on the number provided.
Examples of Smarter Working may include requests for flexible working patterns, part-time hours, compressed hours, flexible start and finish times, home/remote working etc.
This role will involve some out of hours working and emergency cover, due to the operational nature of the service.
