Olleco is on a mission to help protect the planet. Working together with thousands of food service businesses, we’re helping to ensure that greenhouse gas emissions are reduced by hundreds and thousands of tonnes. We are now looking for a Despatch Supervisor to join our team and help us to continue to do things the right way.    

With over 700 colleagues in multiple sites nationwide, we supply premium cooking oils and collect organic waste, which is then converted into bio-methane, electricity, heat and organic fertiliser.    

Within a diverse and inclusive environment, you will have the chance to contribute to our H&S culture and help us maintain our reputation for operational excellence.
