Recycling firm offering graduate jobs?

Published: Tuesday, 30 June 2009   Category: Charities

Those looking for an ethical graduate job may be interested in the new positions being created by Rotherham firm Sterecycle.

By building five new plants across the UK, the firm is to provide a slew of new jobs, which could be taken up by graduates interested in helping to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill instead of recycling facilities.

According to the South Yorkshire Star, Sterecycle is to invest £200 million into the scheme, which will see 300 new jobs being created in order to assist in the recycling of 1.5 million tonnes of waste the company deals with every year.

Graduate recruits may also be involved in the development of a new technology to sterilise household waste before it is sent for recycling, further reducing the impact it has on the environment.

Graduate job hunters with an interest in ethical work were recently advised by the Guardian's Debbi Andalo to take advantage of the Charity Works graduate scheme, which offers two-year placements, training and a £20,000 salary.
