Reconomy Case Study



Reconomy is the UK’s market leader in outsourced waste management and recycling services.

Their nationwide operations extend to every business sector, helping thousands of companies and other organisations to recycle, process or otherwise dispose of every category of waste in an environmentally responsible manner.

They handle every conceivable waste disposal problem and employ 100+ employees.

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.

Reconomy were looking to recruit a Site Liaison Officer, which is a typical recruit for our experienced Waste team.  Even so, a detailed brief was taken of the role, to include responsibilities, qualifications, experience and also, cultural fit and personal profile, which is of equal importance. 

Equipped with a comprehensive brief our Waste team set to work in sourcing the best candidate matches for the Site Liaison position.  With an extensive database (200,000 individuals) and a specialist network of waste professionals our teams quickly identified an impressive shortlist.

ALLEN & YORK will always manage the whole recruitment process, providing close communication with both our clients and candidates alike, to ensure everyone is on the same page and the process is as smooth as possible.

We were delighted that the successful candidate was able to join team relatively quickly, as were the Reconomy team;

“I have enjoyed working with the ALLEN & YORK Waste team, they very quickly understood what we required and developed a very strong working relationship. From this we have been able to secure a very strong candidate to join our team. We won’t hesitate to work with ALLEN & YORK on other assignments.  A pleasure to deal with and a real change from the ‘standard’ recruiters that we have tried to work with in the past."
