Recycling Industry Leader Vanden to Create Dozens of Jobs Worldwide

VANDEN Recycling has launched a global recruitment drive to fill positions across the UK, Europe and as far as Australia and East Asia, as the business continues to grow.

The company is looking to appoint around 60 roles in a number of departments, from finance and factory posts to purchasing, logistics, shipping and sales.

The move has been prompted by huge demand in the recycling sector and means further growth for Vanden, which will be hiring talent to fill positions around the UK and Northern Ireland, Italy, Spain, The Netherlands, Hong Kong and Australia.

As the recycling industry continues to expand, Vanden currently enjoys a successful international operation, with representatives across the globe.

The business currently handles over 100 grades of recoverable plastics, servicing hundreds of customers across 35 countries.

Its UK operation – which has its head offices in Lisburn, newly opened Birmingham sales hub and dedicated recycling facility Whittlesey near Peterborough – has this year celebrated its 10th anniversary, which was marked with an awards ceremony attended by company directors and staff from the UK and overseas.

Global HR Director Matt Haynes said: “The recycling industry is expanding, and Vanden is growing alongside it to meet the huge demands with the aim of becoming the world’s largest recycled plastics commodity company.

“To be able to achieve this we need the very best people, and we are hiring to fill roles across all our major locations, both in the UK and overseas.

“As a values-led organisation, we are dedicated to attracting the very best candidates to these roles – nurturing staff and working as a team to bring out the best not only in our employees around the world, but to add value to our customers.”
