To support businesses in the waste and recycling industries through knowledge and expertise to grow and prosper.
Large or small, we can help to support your business through trouble-shooting, consultancy, training, tendering, commercial advice, project management or interim management. We have vast experience of managing business as usual and implementing new ways of working. You get the knowledge and experience of a senior executive or subject matter expert without the financial commitment of a full-time employee.
Clair Thomas, Managing Director
Clair heads up the business and identifies who would be appropriate for the task, whilst being very hands-on. She specialises in the waste and resource management industry, having spent 20 years working in roles from business development through to operational and general management. A Chartered Waste and Resource Manager, Clair is also a Technical Member of IOSH (Institution of Occupational Safety & Health) and holds an Honours degree in Business with Systems Practice.
