Roles available include drivers, loaders, street cleaners, office staff and supervisors.

A spokesperson for Barking and Dagenham said “This is a fresh start for our waste collection service, and a chance for us to do things better. If you're passionate about creating a cleaner Barking and Dagenham and want to make a real difference to your community, apply now.”

Jon Cruddas MP for Dagenham and Rainham said “refuse staff provide a vital service in our community.

I’m encouraging residents to apply and be a part of the new revamped team.”
