Briefing

Somerset Waste Partnership is an innovative service, established in 2007 to manage waste services across Somerset. The first county-wide initiative of its kind, Somerset Waste Partnership are proud to be a leading provider of waste services and a pioneer of effective and efficient strategies.

They sought an outstanding people manager with a wealth of experience in waste services, to drive efficiencies and seek new ways to improve their ambitious service.

As it was such an important role, we created a bespoke microsite to narrate Somerset Waste Partnership’s success story and give candidates in-depth information about the organisation.

Campaign testimonials

I was particularly pleased with the way in which SmartSearch listened to our requirements and made sure these were included in the application details and shortlisting process. I was also impressed with the weekly updates on progress with the campaign. I would use SmartSearch again to search for and shortlist suitable candidates for senior roles.
