Join us in Yorkshire

Our environmental and waste services business is growing fast - we're looking for great people to join us.

We’re looking for people to help us operate and maintain Allerton Waste Recovery Park - our state-of-the-art waste treatment plant  near Knaresborough in North Yorkshire.  If you missed our recent Recruitment event then don't worry - you can still register your interest by clicking on the right hand link.  If you attended our event then thank you for your time and interest and we'll be in touch in the next couple of weeks.

Make a difference

At Amey we see waste differently  - a resource that can be harnessed to generate energy to help us protect our environment.  We provide a wide range of environmental services to local communities throughout the UK, working with businesses, local authorities and the general public to provide long-lasting solutions, including recycling, composting and energy recovery.

Turn waste into local energy

This plant is one of a number we are constructing and will operate across the UK.  It will reduce the amount of waste going to landfill in North Yorkshire by 90%.  Diverting this waste away from landfill means we can use it to generate enough energy to power the equivalent of 40,000 homes.  We will operate the new facility on behalf of North Yorkshire County Council and the City of York Council for 25 years.

We do more than you might expect

We design, manage and maintain the infrastructure for railways, airports, energy and all sorts of public services, from defence and justice to healthcare, waste and schools.
