If you are looking for a new exciting challenge then this could be the perfect role for you.
We have an excellent opportunity for a Continuous Improvement Manager within our newly created Bioresources team. In this role you will be initially responsible for establishing and managing the implementation of standard process and procedures across our Bioresources sites. Once these have been set up and working to plan, you will lead the review of these improvement activities across the department. Covering 35 sites you will build a continuous improvement attitude at all levels and will be expected to manage relationships from site operatives to managers and influence senior stakeholders to ensure the smooth delivery of any change activity.

Let's talk about what skills or experience you'll need to be able to do the job.
With an understanding of wastewater processes you will also be able to demonstrate experience of stakeholder management, commercial awareness and be able to deliver programmes to time and budget. If you have no prior waste management experience you could have a qualification in Engineering, Science or Project management, along with an IOSH qualification for Health and Safety or equivalent. An effective communicator, with the ability to influence others, delivering solutions using change management skills and a responsible team member supporting others will be key for this role.
