Waste Composition Operatives

About Resource Futures

Resource Futures is an employee-owned consultancy with a vision of a sustainable world. With a focus on designing out waste and pollution, keeping products and materials in use and supporting and regenerating natural systems – a world designed according to circular economy principles.

The opportunity

We are looking for staff to work on projects all over the UK that help local authorities and companies improve their understanding of waste and recycling that they produce, what is being thrown away and how recycling can be improved.

You will separate waste and recycling into different item and material types and record the results. We will provide you with training, equipment, and PPE for the work. You will be part of a small friendly team which (depending on the job location) will usually travel from our Bristol depot to different parts of the UK. We do work in towns and cities all over the UK and pay a travel allowance for work in other areas. Generally, each job runs for five consecutive days of work.

We are especially interested in hearing from experienced drivers of long wheelbase vans (up to 3.5 tonnes).

Ensuite accommodation, subsistence allowance, and protective clothing are provided. The work would suit people that want flexibility in their work commitments and are happy to work away from home for short periods. No previous experience is required, but you must be reliable, motivated, and willing to do hands-on work.

We are a Living Wage Employer. Guaranteed minimum 7 hours per working day. Hourly pay is £10.90 p/h + holiday pay £1.32 p/h. We also pay £28.28 subsistence payment per night away from home, plus £7.50 per day for breakfast subsistence payment. Drivers are paid an extra driving supplement. Some travel costs covered.
