Are you looking for a role where you can utilise your agricultural academic credentials, as well as your acumen and understanding of the farming business community? Do you want to help sustainably recycle 200,000t of biosolids each year, in a dynamic area of our business, which has great development opportunity for the right individual? If you hold a degree and have credible knowledge in farming and agriculture, then we have a great opportunity to join our team as a Biosolids Recycling Controller!


The role

As the Biosolids Recycling Controller you will work to ensure that biosolids are sustainably recycled to land across the Wessex Water region. To do this, you will liaise with the contractors delivering the operation and the 200+ farmers who purchase the 200,000t of biosolids each year, where you will make the initial farm contact and build good working relationships.

A key part of this role is to ensure we maintain our compliance with regulations, such as single farm payment (BPS), nitrate vulnerable zones (NVZ), and sludge and environmental regulations. To keep compliance, it is essential all operation environmental, sludge and agricultural procedures are followed, and all activities are recorded on the company system for audit purposes by the Environmental Agency.

Together with using your industry expertise to run a safe operation that generates maximum income, keep costs down, the post will be key in helping the team progress and adapt to new challenges, whether developing new markets, exploring new products, or incorporating new regulatory or environmental changes.


What do I need?

To be successful your customer service skills will be excellent. You will also be a strong communicator and confident liaising with colleagues, contractors and farmers where you can share their expertise and capabilities.

In addition, we are looking for someone with:

  • the ability to take on a full understanding of sludge recycling regulations, and all associated regulations and codes of practice
  • an understanding of agricultural practices, fertiliser requirements, crop rotations and the nutrient release of organic material
  • a willingness to qualify in FACTs qualification and maintain this professional qualification annually
  • a degree or similar level of experience
