The Waste Way
There’s only ever been one way we do things at Waste and that’s ‘the more you give, the more you get back’. These four pillars form the cultural backbone of Waste, and 14 years on have never steered us wrong.
Wasters with Benefits
So we talked about the more you give... Well, as a Waster, here’s a few of the things you can expect coming back your way:
The way people work is changing - so we're moving with the times. Wasters can now request to work from anywhere in the world for a month a year. Where would you go?
Have ease of mind - if something unfortunate happens and you're unable to work for more than 26 weeks, we can cover a proportion of your salary.
All Wasters are covered by Group Life Assurance, and are eligible to receive a lump sum benefit of 3 x the basic annual salary at the date of death.
Throughout February & August depending on your workload, if you usually finish at 5pm, it's now 3:30pm. Too busy to log off early? Speak to your line manager and get it moved to another day. Result.
While a few wasters have chosen to come to the office on some days (completely voluntary!), a lot of us are still working from home. Make your workday your own with flexible start times & schedules.
Nobody wants to work over Christmas, especially us, so we don't. Ranging from 1 - 2 weeks, our Out Of Office is on during the festivities. And as it's the time for giving, we don't take it out of your holiday entitlement.
Birthdays are best spent in the pub or eating cake somewhere nice, not in the office - so take the day off! If your birthday falls on the weekend, no worries. You can take it on the Friday before or Monday after.
We'll be offering up to 2 days per year for you to give back and volunteer your time to a charity or community. Whether it's fundraising or organising donations, you'll be able to do this either individually or as part of a team.
To encourage healthier journeys to work and to reduce environmental pollution, we'll be able to loan you a bike as a tax-free benefit. Get pedalin'!
We're encouraging environmentally friendlier journeys by providing the Electric Vehicle Scheme! If you go electric, you can save up to 40% on maintenance, tyres, insurance and more - by using part of your gross salary and making savings on income tax and national insurance.
If and when you choose to come to the office - when the clock strikes 4, it's cork poppin' time.
EAP offers access to confidential guidance with face-to-face counselling if required. The service can be accessed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and can help with financial, work, general and medical, family or personal issues.
Christmas and summer parties you'll want to post about (hopefully in person, but we also know how to throw together an online extravaganza).

D&I StatementOur D&I Report
Us Wasters are committed to diversity, equality and inclusion. For us diversity and inclusion are not just a tick-boxing activity, but a chance for us to make long-term meaningful change. A diverse workforce means that we’re able to unlock our ability to innovate, be creative, be better problem solvers and provide an inclusive environment for everyone and we encourage candidates from all backgrounds to apply.
By making ourselves accountable, these measures will go some way to make a real difference in diversity and inclusion, but this is only the start. We can do more… and we will.
