About the Role

Are you looking to make a real difference to how we manage our environment?  Are you passionate about encouraging more sustainable consumption and waste management?  If yes, then the role of Waste Prevention and Strategy Manager might be perfect for you.

East London Waste Authority (ELWA) is leading on the establishment of a new regional waste prevention programme, covering the four London Boroughs of Barking and Dagenham, Havering, Newham and Redbridge.  As Waste Prevention and Strategy Manager, you will be responsible for leading on this programme, managing the staff and budget resources to deliver a range of projects and services alongside numerous partners and stakeholders.

You will also play a supporting role in the development of a new East London Joint Resources and Waste Strategy, which will shape how waste reduction, reuse, recycling and treatment services are delivered in the region for the next 30 years.
