City of Newcastle (CN) is seeking a Senior Resource Management professional to join our Waste Services leadership team as the Post Collection – Client-Side Organics Delivery Manager.

With a continuous improvement culture, our Waste Services service unit is committed to providing waste minimisation and recycling solutions and ensuring the long-term sustainability of our waste management operations. Our Summerhill Waste Management Centre (SWMC) is pivoting from a predominantly landfill operation toward resource recovery by imbedding circular economy into future operational design and taking a co-location and precinct development approach.

  • Degree in Engineering/Environment, Operations/Facility Management, Logistics, Business/Commerce or similar.
