I had previously worked in Social Care at Reading Borough Council and got a good reference, so I was contacted by Streetcare for this position. I was responsible for the administration of bin collections. This meant that I had to log all reports on Excel, liaise with the collection team and answer any queries from local residents. I was also responsible for tracking abandoned cars, contacting the owners if possible and organising for them to be towed away if necessary.
This job required a good eye for detail, problem-solving skills and good customer service. It was quite a colourful environment, as the collection crew were quite rowdy at times, but I didn't mind, as I liked the people I worked with.
Friendly, helpful colleagues
