LondonEnergy, which provides sustainable energy, recycling and resource management, has a vision: to see no waste from its sites sent to landfill. The large company operates from a number of sites across north London to provide a safe, secure alternative to landfill disposal. It also runs reuse and recycling centres for household materials.

LondonEnergy's regulated facilities are integral to the capital's resource economy. It recovers enough energy from waste to power over 80,000 homes, and in doing so, divert around 700,000 tonnes of waste away from landfill each year.

The staff roster includes transport managers, maintenance mechanics, civil engineers and mobile plant operators. Among the benefits on offer are a profit-related bonus, pension scheme, interest-free travel season ticket loan, Costco membership and access to a counselling and advice line.

LondonEnergy is an accredited London living wage employer and its core values are: “Be Safe, Have Trust, Own it.”

Under its mechanical maintenance apprentice programme, recruits can acquire hands-on experience in LondonEnergy's mechanical engineering department while gaining a full degree from the University of Hertfordshire. The four-year programme was designed to help people start a career while studying.

The company also operates a graduate scheme which gives people the opportunity to work with different business units over a three-year period as part of a developmental training programme that includes internal and external training, work projects, mentoring and assessments.

Featured Workplace Factors

My Manager

70% of staff agreed

My manager cares about how satisfied I am in my job

The company launched regular 12-minute meetings with managers at which three points are discussed: what is going well? What can be improved? What development may the person need? Managers also have regular meetings with department heads to keep track of objectives and key projects.

My Team

82% of staff agreed

My team is fun to work with

Some LondonEnergy employees rarely use computers so when the pandemic arrived, it had to quickly implement a virtual solution and teach them Microsoft Teams for meetings, training and to keep in touch with their colleagues.
Teams allowed employees to engage with people they would not necessarily see daily.

Giving Something Back

62% of staff agreed

This organisation is keen to help people from disadvantaged backgrounds

The company's coffee cup recycling scheme, #MochaDifference, is in place in borough council buildings in north London. Staff who work there are encouraged to put single-use cups in a designated recycling bin. LondonEnergy collects them and they are made into plastic furniture.
