Our website is updated every time a new role occurs, so please keep checking for new vacancies or register for job alerts here!

We only accept online applications for all roles within Biffa.
In order to be kept informed of suitable vacancies, please register your details and we will send you regular email alerts when new roles arise.

Once you have registered with us, you can track your application in the Career Profile pages of the website. This shows information on the roles you have applied for and where you are in the process.

If you have any other enquiries, please refer to our extensive list of FAQs or email the Biffa Resourcing Team at recruitment@biffa.co.uk and we will endeavour to get back to you within 3 working days.

Yes, but please bear in mind that although the application process may be similar, most positions are very different because of the location of our depots/offices and the different types of customers we serve. Please think about the type of role that will suit you and your ultimate goals, and only apply for appropriate vacancies.

UK legislation prevents us from employing anyone who does not have the legal right to work in the UK and therefore, unfortunately, we cannot accept applications from people without the correct work permit or visa status.

Congratulations – you’ve been invited for interview, so on paper at least you’ve got what it takes to come and join us. Now that the euphoria has settled, it’s time to think about:

What are you going to wear?
We would expect candidates to wear formal business wear, but if you have any doubts please email recruitment@biffa.co.uk

How are you going to get to the interview?
As you’d expect, you’ll be sent interview confirmation details including the location, who you’ll be meeting and any other specific instructions so that you are fully prepared. Remember, travel isn’t always problem free, so make sure you have a contact name and number to call if you are delayed.

What questions will you be asked?
The interview, as you’d expect, is your opportunity to tell us all about you! Use the opportunity to tell us how your skills and experience match the role and to show how much you’ve researched Biffa in preparation for the interview.
We will want to know more about:

  • Your relevant experience
  • Your technical understanding
  • Your aspirations and how Biffa can help you fulfill them
  • What you know about us

Successful candidates will attend two or three interviews dependent on the position. We will always let you know what our process involves, but please do ask if you are not sure.
We will use competency-based interviews as part of the recruitment process for all of our roles. Wherever possible, we will hold the interview at the location where you are going to be based so you can get a feel for the environment.
If you receive a job offer and have some time before you are due to start with us, we will make sure that we stay in contact with you and that you have all the support so that you feel prepared and welcome on your first day.
If you have any questions or concerns at any point in the process, just email us at recruitment@biffa.co.uk and we’ll try to help.

Yes. We require details of at least two professional referees which cover at least the last three years of your employment, one of whom must be your present or last employer. Please note that open references or references from relatives or people writing solely in the capacity of friends will not be accepted. If this is your first job since leaving full time education, your head-teacher or further education tutor should be given as a referee.

New career opportunities are published as soon as they arise. You also have the option to register and upload your details so that we can consider you for future opportunities as soon as they arise.

Be yourself; act naturally. We want to get to know you. The interviewer is there to help you give a full picture of what you have achieved in the past and won’t be trying to trick you or catch you out in any way.

Listen carefully to the question. Don’t be afraid to take time to collect your thoughts and think of your best example to fit the question before speaking.

It’s okay to ask questions. Remember it’s a two-way conversation and we would like you to be able to find out more about us too and if you would like to work for us.

It’s also okay to ask the interviewer to repeat a question, or check your understanding of what’s being asked.

Your interviewer will be busy taking notes during the interview and may not be able to maintain eye contact with you. Don’t let this distract you or put you off. It’s their job to get everything down so they have an accurate record of what you have said in the interview.

If the interview is to be conducted by telephone, it’s just as important as a face-to-face interview so follow the same preparation guidelines.
Good luck and we look forward to meeting you!
