Oxfam Wastesaver, the textile sorting facility for charity Oxfam, is undergoing a reshuffle of staff which has revealed the resignation of long-serving general manager Tony Clark.
Following a revision of the staffing structure it was decided that the general manager position was no longer needed and that key tasks could be split among other members of staff.
Head of logistics and trading Matt George was brought into the organisation in order to modernise the organisation. However, he told MRW that the reasons why Clark resigned are confidential.
He added: “Essentially my first task is to modernise the whole estate for recycling. There is going to be further investment in the Huddersfield facility and the people working there, securing its future in terms of volumes and investments.”
George reassured that there will not be any redundancies, instead there are plans to grow the organisation while making efficiency savings.
Further plans will see the whole transport team move to its Milton Keynes site, creating more efficiency in the management team. “We’re actually adding more staff here. It is an area where we’ve lacked some core management skills in the past,” George said.
Wastesaver collects two million sacks of textiles and the delivers four million new products into shops each year.
