Processing hazardous waste towards its final destination


The people in this business are down to earth (sometimes literally) and genuinely care about our environment.  They manage our waste, including substances requiring special attention prior to disposal.  On these sites dealing with hazardous substances, chemical process is significant. Safety is a constant priority. 


The position enjoys the variety of moving between locations, supervising people and workflow across 3 sites.  The teams are responsible for determining the correct treatment process of diverse waste materials, to a point where the final product is acceptable for disposal to landfill or sewer.  Unique challenges for the team include the sights, smells and sounds associated with a hazardous waste site.  Supporting all site activities including data and reporting, the Supervisor engages with Chemist, maintenance, operations, suppliers and contractors, always with a view to continuous improvement, capability development, environmental compliance and of course, safety. 


You don’t need to be a qualified Chemist, but you will bring knowledge of chemical processes, possibly from manufacturing, water treatment or a similar background. You will have a flair for inspiring teams to high performance, recognising the value of the work they do.  You will pride yourself on attention to detail, process efficiency and diligent risk management, committed to the safety of your people.
