Christine Thomas

Christine has worked in waste management for 27 years, progressing from junior clerk to enforcement and trade manager. She has revelled in training through a Systems and Operational Management Apprenticeship before moving on to a Higher Apprenticeship (Level 4 Diploma).Her enthusiasm for training has seen several colleagues sign up for Apprenticeships.

“The waste and recycling industry is constantly evolving with new procedures and I wanted to update my leadership and management skills to ensure the staff I lead would be trained to as high a level as possible. As an assessor, I can now mentor my staff to ensure that they become more highly qualified and ultimately help make sure that Newport City Council has an improved recycling rate.”
