Prospectus is delighted to support Material Focus to recruit for an Environmental Partnership Officer. Material Focus is an independent not-for-profit established to help the UK meet its electrical reuse and recycling targets. They fund technical research on the barriers to recycling; work with partners to improve the current systems; and make it easier for people to change their behaviour through their nationwide Recycle Your Electricals campaign.

This role is part of their work to improve the UK electrical recycling system. All businesses who manufacture, import and sell electricals (producers and retailers) in the UK must comply with environmental obligations. These include ensuring electricals are responsibly recycled to protect natural resources, and manage waste. Businesses who don’t comply are called ‘Freeriders’.

This role will support the Local Authority and Environmental Partnerships Manager to educate electrical producers and retailers on their environmental obligations. You will carry out desk based research to help identify, map out and contact new and existing electrical producers and retailers (on and offline). And you’ll work with the inhouse team to develop communications and toolkits to help these businesses understand their environmental obligations. You’ll also work with the Environment Agency who are responsible for managing and investigating any potential ‘Freeriders’.

Material Focus is looking for someone with excellent organisational skills with the ability to manage work with attention to detail and comfortable collecting and analysing data. As well as any additional experience of building effective relationships and working collaboratively, including with external partners.

At Prospectus, we invest in your journey as a candidate and are committed to supporting you with your application. We welcome all candidates to apply, regardless of age, sex/gender, disability, race, religion, sexual orientation, marital status, or pregnancy/maternity.
