ALLEN & YORK’s Waste Recruitment team specialise in sourcing high calibre talent across; waste management, sales, planning and engineering within; recycling, AD & Biogas,  Energy from Waste (EfW) and other related waste sectors.

The requirement to hire an Operations Controller was an urgent and key recruit for London Waste, and they were looking for a fast turn-around. 

Our Waste team have a fantastic network of ready screened candidates and an additional database of over 200,000 candidates to search.  The team was therefore able to hit the ground running and send a comprehensive shortlist through to the London Waste hiring team in a matter of days.

At ALLEN & YORK we will always tailor our approach to match each recruitment assignment and take the time to listen to the exact requirement.  Taking time at the beginning speeds up the process in the long-run and ensures excellent candidate matching.

With this approach we were able to present expertly sourced candidates, arrange interviews within an extremely tight timeframe and manage the offer and on-boarding stages in an effective and efficient manner. 

As such the ALLEN & YORK Waste team delivered a great service and London Waste were delighted with the results;

“ALLEN & YORK responded particularly well to a recruitment need which arose at short notice.  They quickly understood our needs and provided us with good calibre candidates to interview. Within 7 days we had interviewed and appointed the person we wanted.  We were very happy with their support.” Human Resources Officer at London Waste
