Public Engagement Advisors

Resources and Waste Advisory Group Ltd


Paid • Full Time • Fixed Term Contract 07970 717041 Stephen Bates

Sectors: sustainability

Closing date: Friday, 31st January 2020  

We’re recruiting a team of people to work across two projects in London from February to April 2020 undertaking doorstep engagement and event engagement activities promoting improvements to environmental behaviours.

One project will take place in the London Borough of Hackney where doorstep engagement will be used to tackle the burning of illegal solid fuels. The other is a series of 16 public engagement events promoting waste minimisation messages to the people across four South West London Boroughs.

Key duties will include

  • Operating as part of a team across the areas assigned to you
  • Engaging with residents on their doorstep to explain the key issues
  • Meeting passers by at events and opening discussions
  • Recording information into a hand-held tablet

No experience is required as full training will be provided. Key personal attributes include:

  • A confident but friendly manner in approaching members of the public
  • Competency in the use of hand-held tablets
  • Willingness to work outside 

No experience or knowledge of the environmental issues that the projects are promoting is essential (though welcome if you have it) as full training is provided but you must demonstrate empathy to environmental improvement.

We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from people from all walks of life. However, you should be aware that you will be required to walk several miles each day and spend extended periods on your feet. Please note that a working week will run from Wednesdays to Sundays.

Whilst this contract will run only to April, there does exist the potential for an extension. Plus, you will be fast-tracked to any future projects should they arise (subject to performance).

CVs and a covering letter or email is all you need to apply and contact us if you have any questions about the role. 

No agencies please.
