Does working for us interest you?

We welcome speculative applications and would love to hear from you.


We are committed to equality of opportunity for all staff

Applications from individuals are encouraged regardless of age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and marriage or civil partnership status.

Ban the Box

We support the Ban the Box initiative, a campaign which creates a fair opportunity for people with convictions to compete for jobs by removing the tick box from application forms and asking about criminal convictions later in the recruitment process.

Bristol Equality Charter

We are also part of the Bristol Equality Charter, a commitment Bristol organisations make to help improve equality, diversity and inclusion across the city.

Equalities, Diversity and Inclusion

It is hugely important to us that our organisation reflects the diversity of our community, service users and partners. We understand that as a Company we are underrepresented by Ethnic Minorities, Women and LGBTQ+ across our workforce. Bristol Waste Company is committed to targeting these groups during our recruitment process and welcome candidates who can contribute greater diversity of representation at all levels of our business. Our Equalities, Diversity and Inclusion working group aim to form initiatives across the company to tackle this underrepresentation.

We reserve the right to close vacancies early if we receive a high volume of suitable applications.

All our vacancies close at midnight on the closing date and late submissions will not be accepted. Applications will be shortlisted soon after the closing date.

If you have not heard from us within three weeks of the closing date, you can assume that you have been unsuccessful at this stage.

Thank you for your interest in vacancies at Bristol Waste.
