ACE (Action for Community & Environment – charity number 1149290), are an LCRN member and in collaboration with WAMITAB (Waste Management Industry Training & Advisory Board) and Smart Development is delivering Eco-Diversity Training through Jobcentre Plus, an official industry recognised qualification in environmental and resource management. The training covers health and safety, recycling activities, waste classification, waste management and handling including food, and support services.
ACE is looking for partners willing to accept the qualified candidates in work placements (at least 100 hours), to gain practical experience and to contribute to company initiatives, in the waste, re-use and recycling sector. The work placements are scheduled to start at the beginning of September.
We need twenty two work placement positions at no cost to the network members (expenses are covered by the jobcentreplus), They are expected to do at least three weeks of work placement to gain practical knowledge of the sector. We expect the candidates to work on any support roles under supervision.
The objective is for the candidates to gain practical knowledge on how the waste/recycling and re-use sector works.
