Working in Environment and Transport

Our Environment and Transport department offers some exciting opportunities, involving some of the most widely used services by residents in Leicestershire. These services offer major benefits to residents both now and for future generations, so if you are looking to make a real difference, we have a lot that will interest you.

From dealing with a wide range of environmental issues to sustainable transport, traffic safety, design and the maintenance of highways, we have a wide range of important and interesting roles.

Meet our colleagues

I work on campaigns and initiatives to reduce waste and encourage recycling throughout Leicestershire. I work closely with our volunteers to communicate these messages to residents at various events and talks throughout the county. Some of the areas I work on include waste education, volunteer and event coordination and our SHIRE environment grant scheme. I find it rewarding to know that the behaviour change messages I am communicating are having a positive impact on our environment.
