Job title: Waste Management Officer

Area of work: Waste Management Operations

I’ve been working for Devon County Council for almost three years having joined the Waste Management Team in 2016.

As a commuter from the Torridge area to Exeter, Devon County Council are very supportive. Flexible working hours mean I can avoid the rush hour traffic and, now that we have laptops and Windows 10 software, I can work from home once a week. Flexible working hours are a great help too for balancing my work and home life.

Within my role as Waste Management Officer (Operations), Devon County Council have greatly supported my career development. They’ve funded a proportion of my Masters Degree studies and encouraged my attendance of industry seminars held by the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management.

I thoroughly enjoy working for the County Council and hope that I will have many more years working here.
