WMAA launches Australia's first dedicated waste industry careers website


WMAA Career Centre

In April 2016, WMAA launched WMAA Career Centre, a new employment site that connects waste and resource recovery professionals across disciplines and career stages with employers offering career opportunities. The WMAA Career Centre is powered by YourMembership, the leading provider of job websites and career centres for organisations that serve niche audiences.

"Providing our members with opportunities for professional development and career growth are core to our mission in serving waste and resource recovery professionals,” said Martin Tolar, WMAA Chief Executive Officer. “Our members are highly attractive to employers because they have demonstrated a commitment to the highest levels of professionalism and innovation,” he continued. “YourMembership’s technology and sales support will ensure that our website serves our members by providing a clear view into organisations that value and seek the skills, expertise, qualification and training they have to offer."
