Senior Resource Advisor

Brian Carr, Belfast City Council

My job as Senior Resource Advisor is to be responsible for the planning, co-ordination and delivery of recycling awareness and advice activities direct to the public through the management of the Resource Advisor team.

I am also responsible for the introduction and support of new recycling schemes, such as the food waste trial currently running in areas of Belfast. This work involves the collection, production and monitoring of a wide range of data used in assessing the effectiveness of our waste education campaigns.

What I enjoy most about my job is the variety of work involved and that I am based both in an office and 'out and about' throughout Belfast.

For example, I could be in the office designing a promotional leaflet or catching up on paper work or out inter-acting with the public through information events or canvassing areas where not enough people are using their recycling bins. This involves knocking on doors and talking to people about recycling and why it is a good thing to do.
