Happy International Women's Day!

Today, we want to take a moment to recognise and celebrate all the incredible women who work at Greenzone.

We proudly employ 70% of people who identify as female. These women bring passion, skill, and creativity to everything they do. We’re grateful for their contributions to our team and their impact on the Sustainable Waste Management Industry.   

Greenzone woman in the spotlight 

Claire Hillam, CSR & Creative specialist 

“I feel proud to be involved in CSR activities like equality and diversity training where Greenzone has created a fair and inclusive workplace where women have equal opportunities and access to resources, promote gender equality, women’s rights, and support career advancement.” 

Chloe Lewsley, Bid Manager 

“In a predominantly male-dominated industry, I am proud to be part of a team where 70% of our employees identify as female. Through the advocacy of a diverse workforce, Greenzone break the stereotypes often associated with the waste management, paving the way for future generations of women embarking on careers within this sector. Without the continued support and celebration of professional development provided by Greenzone, I would not have been able to obtain my CF APMP certification.” 

Heather Lee, Systems Training Manager 

“I’m thankful for the opportunities Greenzone has given me to advance and develop my career in Training and Development. As a driven woman I take pride in being part of this organisation, feeling empowered and looking forward to the possibilities the future holds. On International Women’s Day I celebrate the achievements of women everywhere and the strides we continue to make in the workplace.” 

Jacqui Walton, Human Resource and Payroll Manager 

“As a Human Resources & Payroll Manager my role is very varied, and an important part is being a Mental Health First Aider offering support and guidance to anyone – whether an issue is large or small my door is always open. I am very proud of the contribution I make at Greenzone – as it is not all about the work but also about the people who make Greenzone what it is today.” 

Lucy Waspe, Finance 

‘I have worked at Greenzone for over 9 years now and they have supported me in my career enabling me to become a Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA). I would like to thank them for all their support they really are a great company to work for.  

Louise Taggart, CEO
