Position Summary: Are you passionate about working with others to address climate change and reduce food waste? Metro is looking for a motivated person to support implementation of the commercial food scrap separation policy adopted by the Metro Council in July 2018. As Associate Solid Waste Planner, you'll play a key role supporting "Food Waste Stops With Me" -- a public-private partnership that aims to advance business and industry efforts to prevent food waste, support the donation and rescue of edible food, and develop business food scrap collection programs. You will both lead and support projects, and collaborate with other public and private organizations to develop technical assistance resources for businesses. In this role, you will spend about 60 percent of your time on food waste-related work, managing projects, leading and/or support working groups, conducting research and data analysis, supporting partnerships, and coordinating and preparing reports. You'll also support the maintenance of partnerships with businesses, other government agencies and community-based organizations to advance food waste reduction efforts. Your role will include work on other solid waste and waste reduction issues with a focus on projects and programs that support waste reduction in the commercial/business sector. For the first six to seven months in this position, you will spend up to 40% of your time working on Metro's Investment and Innovation grant program.
At Metro, we hire a workforce representative of the communities we serve, understanding that a diverse workforce strengthens our organization. We value diversity and support a positive and welcoming environment where all of our employees can thrive.
A Bachelor's degree and two years of experience including research, analysis, project management and report writing or public policy development; or any combination of experience and education which provides the applicant with the desired skills, knowledge and ability required to perform the job.
Strong collaborative skills and a demonstrated ability to form and maintain partnerships, lead groups, and to work effectively with others on a common task.
Experience working with commercial/business sector waste reduction or other sustainability programs.
