We are FCC Environment, one of the nation’s leading waste and resource management companies. Committed to sustainability, we strive to minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill by transforming it into valuable resources wherever possible.

We own and operate more than 200 recycling, treatment and disposal facilities and employ nearly 2,400 people across the UK.

We’re currently looking for a Recycling Centre Team Lead to join us in Peterborough and support the day-to-day operation of our Household Recycling Centre.

- Up to 25 days’ holiday per annum
- The option to purchase up to five days of additional leave

At FCC Environment, we have a lot to offer our employees. We know that in order to achieve our goals, our people need to be happy and have all the tools they need to give their best.

We will invest in you, your talent and potential (for your benefit and ours). We’ll encourage you to challenge yourself, increase your existing knowledge and develop, both personally and professionally.

Once you join the team, you’ll discover an open, honest environment where everyone is treated equally, feedback is actively encouraged and a job well done is always recognised and rewarded.

The Role

As our Recycling Centre Team Leader, you’ll be responsible for the day-to-day operation of Peterborough Household Recycling Centre.

Striving to deliver excellent customer service, you will actively encourage recycling and reusing items and help members of the public to use our waste disposal facilities.

The other key aspect of your role will involve ensuring the health and safety of staff, visitors, contractors, agency staff and customers on-site.

Some of your duties will include:

- Leading and motivating your team to complete tasks to a high standard
- Supporting the Contract Operations Manager in delivering a safe and efficient recycling centre service
- Encouraging staff to identify reusable items and pass them on to our charity partners
- Ensuring that all plant and equipment safety checks are completed
- Making sure that all waste is identified and non-conforming waste is appropriately dealt with

About You

To join us as our Recycling Centre Team Leader, you’ll need:

- Experience of working in a customer-facing environment
- Team management experience, including the ability to lead a multi-disciplined team
- Great communication skills
- A commitment to delivering high levels of customer service

Experience of working in a household waste recycling centre and/or in a waste or recycling environment would be beneficial, as would experience of working in a heavily regulated environment.

Experience of operating a 360-degree excavator would also be an advantage, as would first aid training (or the ability to undertake training for both of these).

Other organisations may call this role Centre Team Leader, Recycling Centre Supervisor, Refuse Site Supervisor, Refuse Centre Team Leader, or Household Waste Recycling Centre Team Leader.

Those who’ve worked as a Customer Service Team Leader, Customer Service Supervisor, Customer Care Team Leader, or Senior Customer Services Advisor are also encouraged to apply.

Please note, this is a full-time role, working five days out of seven with possible split rest days dependent on operational requirements.
