Resource Futures is recruiting a Coordinator to work with Waste Prevention Volunteers across Worcestershire. This exciting project is being managed by Resources Futures on behalf of Worcestershire County Council, to support their ‘Let’s Waste Less’ volunteer programme and the work of their Waste Prevention Project Manager. The post will be based at home but necessitates travel within Worcestershire, and therefore you will have a full, clean driving licence plus access to a car/van and be willing to drive when required.
The aim of the post is to coordinate a growing pool of volunteers, who are promoting waste reduction messages to residents of Worcestershire. The volunteers will be giving talks, attending events, visiting schools, or promoting waste reduction messages via social media and articles. The successful candidate will ideally be based within Worcestershire and will work closely with both the local authority and the Resource Futures project manager. This post will involve providing training and support for existing volunteers, as well as recruitment and training of new volunteers.
You will have an optional ethical pension plan – in this scheme you can contribute up to 7% and the company will match the employee contribution. In addition to this generous pension plan, we offer life insurance, Employee Assistance Programme, on call GP access, cycle to work schemes, volunteer days, external memberships, flexible working, company membership and annual away days. You will have access to our Consultative Group platform for employee voice and Learning and Development opportunities. You will be joining a company striving to be an inclusive employer and always interested in hearing your ideas.
