As a Transport Planner at SUEZ, recycling and recovery UK, you’ll be contributing to an ever growing established recycling and recovery company that’s helping customers reduce their impact on the environment, conserve natural resources and reduce landfill.

What will I be doing as a Transport Planner?

  • With 300 sites across the country serving 12 million residents and 40,000 businesses, we need an extensive fleet to provide our services.
  • As a Transport Planner, you’ll take charge of our regional transport function and ensure it runs like clockwork.
  • You’ll be the immediate line manager for our drivers - allocating work, delivering instructions, monitoring their progress and checking that everything has been completed at the end of the day.
  • Excellence will be as important to you as it is to us, so you’ll be exacting when it comes to ensuring that vehicles are maintained and that driver checks are carried out properly. In fact, you’ll strive for constant general improvement and increased profitability.

What are the requirements? (experience and qualifications)

  • An experienced supervisor, you’ll be used to managing people, keeping accurate records and dealing with queries and problems. 
  • Some knowledge of the Waste or Transport industry is also needed, along with good numerical skills.
  • Ideally, you’ll have a National CPC and the ability to use Word and Excel, however, what’s important in this role is clear communication (in person and on paper), a friendly, approachable manner and great teamwork skills.
  • Please note that a full driving licence is essential.
  • Some weekend working, early starts and/or late finishes may be required on a fixed or rotating basis.
