The role is very much a hands on supervisory role. It will require travelling to the Council’s RHWSs and WTSs daily to undertake HR related tasks (supporting the onboarding process for new starters, undertaking one to ones, return to works, low level policy discussions), deliver training through work books and / or supporting those completing through e-learning, developing and delivering toolbox talks and other training packages / safety briefings, monitoring and enforcing the Council’s safe systems of work and risk assessments for all site operations, ensuring records for waste movements are accurate and appropriately filed, monitoring and enforcing the Council’s Quality Management System for processes at the RHWSs, issuing and monitoring / recording PPE and unfirms to staff, the role many require driving form time to time a Council 3.5 tonne box van, handling of low level complaints from customers face to face, by telephone and by email.

We will provide PPE and may be some uniform requirements, particularly the potential wearing of a Body Worn Camera (BWC). The BWC will only record and make footage available for download, if activated by the holder. These are part of uniform for all field based staff, unless reasonable adjustments should be considered.

The ideal candidate will have: –


Good IT skills
Good interpersonal skills
Good numeracy and literacy skills
Experience of dealing with customers
Experience of line managing multiple staff
Experience of delivering training packages
Valid UK drivers licence for driving up to a 3.5 tonne vehicle, access to own vehicle and insurance to cover business use

Have a valid and relevant Certificate of Technical Competence with the appropriate evidence of continued competence
Experience of driving a vehicle up to 3.5 tonnes

In addition regards mileage claims, we would agree a base / work location which would form the standard commute mileage. This is likely to be one of the Council’s primary RHWSs (excluding Whetstone) that is the closest one to where the candidate lives.

So for the purposes of mileage claims, the base is likely to be one of Barwell, Coalville, Loughborough, Market Harborough Melton, Mountsorrel or Oadby. They can then claim mileage undertaken daily that is above their commute to and from that agreed primary RHWS.
