All about Waste and Recycling Recruitment

Moving towards a more circular economy and increasing the production of energy from waste is why we’re in the Waste and Recycling recruitment marketplace.​ We work with national and regional waste management companies within the UK, as well as internationally, to help recruit people who will make a difference in this sector.

The Waste and Recycling market is growing at a steady pace and is expected to keep growing as the world looks for new technology and solutions, like the deposit return scheme, improved management of electronic waste via secondary storage of the EV batteries and recycling of complex solids and chemical waste without the use of toxic acids and solvents.

As one of the most innovative industries we specialise in and it’s constantly developing, so it’s important we keep ahead of the curve. We hire for jobs across Waste to Energy, Anaerobic Digestion, Biogas, Landfill Gas, Energy from Waste, Refuse-derived fuel (RDF), for Materials Recovery Facilities (MRF) and Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF).

Having a sustainable offer for Waste and Recycling relies upon sourcing the best talent - from Operators to Project Managers, Contract Managers to Business Development and Sales Professionals, Recycling Managers to Waste Consultants, and Operations Directors to Managing Directors. Allen & York will help you find that talent.
