Since it was founded in 1997, by the leading environmental management services company Veolia as part of the Landfill Communities Fund, VET has contributed over £90 million to support almost 2,521 projects.

Please send us your current comprehensive CV and a supporting statement illustrating why you'd like to be involved and what skills and experience you would bring.
