Recycling Collection Officer

Based in Blackburn
Contract: Full time, permanent
Salary: c£25K + basic with £20k OTE / bonus / pension
Immediate Start

Clothes Aid collect small unwanted household items and bric-a-brac from our national door to door charity collections. When sold on, we are able to donate substantial amounts of the proceeds to our charity partners. The more we can collect the more financial support we can give our charity partners.

We want to set up an alternative national recycling collection network to complement our established door to door collections. Collecting free donations for our charity partners as well as buying unwanted goods from non-charity suppliers e.g. council recycling centres, household clearance companies.

We are looking for a recycling collection person who will help us to extend our reach so we can access unwanted household goods (e.g. kitchenware, pots and pans, cutlery, even ironing boards and golf clubs – any household items) from sources such as local council recycling centres, schools, community jumble sales to name just a few.

Once the recycling collection network is established; working alongside an experienced supportive team, the next key step will be to organise and coordinate the collection process across the UK.

We need someone with experience of working in a recycling background (local authority / business context or similar).

If you have the transferable knowledge, skills and experience we need with a hands on approach to managing all aspects of a challenging new initiative… we would very much like to meet you!

In return we will offer you the chance to use your talents, to drive both the company and your own personal success.
