Zero Waste Team Members

We're looking for helpers at our Zero Waste stand at Flamingo Pier from 4 -6 Feb 2022. If you are keen to reduce waste and spread the word on composting and recycling at this amazing event, we want to hear from you!
The role consists of being a Zero Waste Hero by helping to monitor the Zero Waste Event stations where we collect compostable cups, plates and packaging, recyclable materials, food waste and landfill materials.
As a Zero Waste Team Member, your main purpose will be to engage with the event attendees by having positive interactions about waste (for example, enthusiastically talking about why collecting food separately and composting it is better than sending it to landfill.) We also help to collect waste items that have not been brought to the waste station (such as drinks bottles left by attendees) to keep the event tidy and organised. The Zero Waste Team Members work on an hourly rate and in shifts of 6-8hrs.

About you

  • Enjoy meeting people, friendly with excellent customer service skills.
  • Work collaboratively in a team.
  • Have a passion for sustainability and improving the environment.
  • Proactive self-starter with flair for connecting people with our sustainability purpose.
  • Can-do attitude and the ability to roll up sleeves and get stuck in!

This role will require general fitness as individuals will be expected to stand for long periods. The Flamingo Pier festival is a high energy and noisy environment, therefore Team Member will need to embrace the scene and go with the flow.
