Waste Planner Position at Wellington City Council
Waste touches all aspects of how we live, work and play in our city - having long term impacts on our environment and contributing to Wellington's carbon emissions. To become a net zero carbon capital by 2050, we need people who have the skills, experience and commitment to manage and minimise waste.

Our new Waste Strategy team, formed to help the Council meet its bold goals, is focused on implementing the zero waste strategy, and naturally people in our team are wanting to be the champions of change - making a difference for generations to come.

The Role & You
As our Waste Planner you'll support the delivery of actions to implement the Zero Waste Strategy and associated work programmes. You'll be involved in projects around kerbside rubbish reviews, organics collection, construction and development waste diversion - just to name a few.

You'll be gathering data and working to understand the trends and meaning - gaining insights to share with the team to allow informed decisions to be made.

As you would expect from such a role, you'll need to be analytical, comfortable understanding and managing data - and passionate for our cause. You'll be able to prioritise and organise your work effectively.

Why Us?
You'll be joining a team with a range of skills, from experts in the industry to newbies - you can learn from the experts while sharing experiences and working through solutions together with our newer team members.

The team culture is action oriented - people have joined this team to get things done. The manager, Diljinder Uppal, has a hands-off style - there to help and guide, but not nitpick or micro-manage. He is outcome focused rather than task focused.
