London waste board advertising for new head

The mayor of London is advertising for a new chair of the London Waste and Recycling Board (Lwarb), the first time an open recruitment process has been used for the post.

Applicants for the £20,000 role, part-time for one day a week, have until 8 January to stake their claim.

A statement from Lwarb says: “The role will be crucial in delivering the mayor’s ambitions to reinvigorate recycling and accelerate the transition to a circular economy (CE) in London.

“The successful candidate will be someone with proven interest and experience in areas including the circular economy, green finance, recycling and materials recovery, and climate change mitigation”.

The mayor of London’s priorities include:

  • a 65% recycling rate by 2030
  • creating jobs in reuse, repair, remanufacturing and materials innovation to support London’s transition to a CE
  • London becoming a zero carbon city by 2050

The statement added: “The mayor has decided to find a new chair via an open recruitment process in order to attract someone who has the best combination of skills and expertise to take his important agenda forward.”
