Oxfordshire Resources and Waste Partnership

This is an exciting time to join the Oxfordshire Resources and Waste Partnership. We are seeking an exceptional individual who can help us rise to the challenges ahead. Oxfordshire's authorities are collectively amongst the best in England for waste and recycling, and we want to be even better in the future. We have collectively signed up to the Oxfordshire Resources and Waste Strategy 2018-2023 (our Joint Municipal Waste Management Strategy).

With the county facing significant housing and economic growth, climate emergencies having been declared by many authorities, we want to develop a truly low carbon and circular economy. This is a role with considerable opportunities to influence change both within the county and nationally. 

We are looking for a natural collaborator, with a track record in delivering through partnerships to help us work together to achieve our challenging targets to improve our recycling rates, keep waste per person low, and send as little to landfill as possible.
