Who is Fenland District Council as an organisation?
Fenland District Council prides itself on being a quality organisation and as such has committed to protecting and enhancing the environment through its business plan.
We have thus made it our corporate priority to deliver a high performing refuse, recycling and street cleansing service.
The position has been created in order to help achieve this aim. That is to say, the Council has recognised that whilst it has a duty to collect waste it has an opportunity to work with members of the public to reduce the impact of this on the environment by diverting waste away from landfill, and in so doing creating a more sustainable system.
What is the Communities, Environment & Leisure Team like?
You will be line managed by the Senior Events and Projects Officer. The project will be governed overall by the Head of Environmental Services. You will be situated with two other projects officers, although you will have primary responsibility for this project.
With that said, the team is supportive and where necessary will offer you guidance and if appropriate direction. The Council has a one team ethos whereby employees will endeavour to assist one another to achieve the Council’s aims regardless of organisational structure. Consequently, members of the team demonstrate respect and dignity for all and have a strong customer focus.

We will help you to achieve this through monthly 1:2:1s with your line manager, during which we will reflect on your progress and discuss opportunities for project and personal development. You will also have the Council’s training resource library at your disposal to assist you in your learning and development.
