Leadership of regional sludge logistics and recycling operations for a major UK water company.
A key challenge in this role was building a strong safety culture across a team of 51 direct and 85 partner employees. Working in a heavily regulated environment it was key to ensure operations were always both sustainable and compliant. The landscape of sludge processing and recycling is rapidly changing, aligning the operations to be well prepared for these changes was also a key deliverable in this role. Process change was enabled through working with David Excell alongside the Egremont Group and understanding their methodologies for sustainable change. Successful delivery of this role was aided by Niki’s strong networks across the UK water industry and through her membership of the CIWEM Wastewater panel.
