About Newport

Newport City Council: Improving people’s lives

Newport is a vibrant, forward-thinking city steeped in a rich industrial heritage that recently has proved it can re-establish and adapt itself as a centre of modern industry and commerce.

City Services is responsible for the Council’s front line services including, waste, cleansing, highways, transport, grounds, parks, cemeteries, customer services and infrastructure. It also includes all the operations at its Docks Way landfill site, managed in house.

About the job

This is an exciting role combining on the ground day to day operations and a more strategic management role. As the Landfill Team Manager you will be in charge of all our disposal operations for both non-hazardous and asbestos waste, and will lead on managing relationships with our commercial clients and supervise our weighbridge operations and Waste Acceptance processes. You will also oversee operations at out transfer station to manage all municipal residual waste and some recycling streams, and our dedicated composting facility, where you will have to manage the day to day operations to ensure compliance with our PAS 100 accreditation and secure outlets for our compost. Another essential part of the role will be to ensure observance and compliance with the site’s IPPC Environmental Permit and landfill tax requirements. Additionally, income generation is an important element to the landfill activities so the role will also involve actively seeking for clients and managing the financial element of the disposal activity. You will report directly to the Waste and Cleansing Service Manager and will work closely with the other managers in the team.

About the person

Enthusiastic and confident, you should have a relevant technical qualification to support the role or equivalent experience in this area, and hold a relevant Certificate of Technical Competence in Landfill Operations.

You have the ability to lead and motivate a diverse workforce and are open-minded and business focused, with an organised and analytical approach to your work – and you are used to maintaining attention to detail while working to tight deadlines. You are self-motivated and have excellent communication and interpersonal skills and appreciate the importance of customer care.

You have strong financial management skills and a creative approach to problem solving with excellent IT and data analysis/management skills.

Our vision is to provide the most efficient and effective services in Wales and to enable this you will need to embrace change, technology and performance management.

We look forward to receiving your application if you meet the criteria and requirements of this role.
