Ambition Ipswich

Waste and Fleet Operations Manager

We are looking for someone to lead and manage a large and vital operational area, reporting directly to the Head of Culture and Environment.

The successful applicant will be responsible for the safe, efficient and effective operation of cleansing, recycling and waste collection in addition to having responsibility for a strong trade waste service.

However, you will be much more than that. Your team carries out a variety of frontline services that are in the public and media spotlight and you will have the opportunity to develop initiatives that benefit both Council and community – developing innovative ways of ensuring "buy in" from residents and colleagues.

You will also be the Council's primary Transport Manager and ensure we comply with guidance and regulations set by the Traffic Commissioner.

You will be a key member of the Council's Senior Managers Group and will represent the Council on the Suffolk Waste Partnership.

If you are up to the challenge, we want to hear from you.
