RELIEF GROUNDS MAINTENANCE OPERATIVE
£10.21 – 10.41 per hour
Hours will be confirmed on a weekly basis
Do you have an interest in the outdoors?
Would you like to be in a role where you can make a real difference to the environment in which Newark and Sherwood residents live?
We are now looking to recruit an enthusiastic, hard-working person to join our Street Scene team as a Relief Grounds Maintenance Operative. As it is a relief post, whilst you are not guaranteed hours, you will have some flexibility in terms of the days you work, agreeing these with your manager on a weekly basis. There may, however, also be occasions where you are called in at short notice if there is a need.
The purpose of the post is to cover busy periods within the team in addition to covering holidays and sickness.
You will be working with an experienced team who really care about the role they play in making Newark and Sherwood Cleaner, Safer and Greener. You must be prepared to work in all weather conditions, to accept varied duties, to be flexible in your approach to work and have the ability to adapt to changes to your workload.
You will join a team dedicated to maintaining the District Council’s open spaces, including parks, play areas, playing fields and amenity areas, to a high standard. You will have grounds maintenance skills and powered tools and plant operation experience.
Candidates must also have a full driving licence due to the requirement to drive Council vehicles as part of the role.
The hours you work will vary depending on the time of year and the need for additional hours. You may also be asked to work some weekends as directed by the supervisor / line manager when there is a business need, for example (but not limited to), if there is an event in the district.
