Your Career


Inducting new starters to our business is a fantastic opportunity to offer them a warm welcome, give them a speedy introduction to their work and to ensure that they are quickly compliant with all of our policies and procedures. Done well, our new starters will feel engaged, valued and able to add value very quickly.

To assist this process, the induction will explain to the employee; the organisation, the culture, the people and the role, also ensuring that all employees understand their health and safety responsibilities. In addition to this, staff will also have a local induction, which will be specific to their area of work.


The safety of all our people is our number one priority and we are very proud of our Health and Safety record here at Biffa. We received a five star award from the British Safety Council (BSC) for the seventh year running this year (2019). We have a team of dedicated Health and Safety professionals to support all of our people in their day to day activities.


To support your learning and development we offer a portfolio of different courses through our Know How platform. Through these pages you can access everything you need to invest in your own, or your teams', training and development. Know How provides up-to-date information on all of the training and personal development courses available, including technical training, sales, leadership, management and personal development, customer service training and all other aspects that can contribute to progressing your career here at Biffa.




"Training sessions are vital to an individual's development…. they are the first step in the learning process" To support an individual's development, the building of confidence within their role and supporting their growth towards fulfilling their potential, Biffa offers various face to face based sessions and e-learning modules that aim to enhance existing skills and knowledge through interactive, fun and meaningful learning experiences. Whether it's to become more organised and make the most of the time available, handle conflict situations more assertively, present more confidently, persuade more effectively, communicate more meaningfully…we can help.

Professional Development

With such a diverse and widespread team, we work hard to make it easy for our people to access learning remotely. e-learning is therefore readily available to all of our people via the Know How training platform. We have a wide range of e-learning programmes available covering a broad range of subjects including health and safety, product knowledge and personal development modules.


We have a very strong focus on encouraging our people to realise their potential and we work hard to support and encourage the development of talent within the business. We operate a talent identification programme and positively encourage our people to progress their careers at Biffa.
