We are currently seeking to appoint a Clean and Green Operative (Scale 3) to join our Clean and Green service within Street Scene Services based at the Robert Hodge Centre in Skelmersdale. This is an exciting opportunity to join a team who are focused on making a difference to our local areas.
As a Clean and Green Operative you will work as part of a team to provide a high quality environmental maintenance service, including both planned and reactive work for all aspects of street cleansing and grounds maintenance functions. You will drive a range of Council owned vehicles including vans, tipper vans and link tips in addition to towing trailers commensurate with licence certification and appropriate training. You will also use a full range of handheld plant with walk behind plant and machinery including pedestrian mowers, strimmers, hedge trimmers, again commensurate with certification and/or successful completion of appropriate training.
You will hold a full UK Driving licence (Licence B and B1), have experience of working as part of a manual operational service and the ability to undertake tasks as directed to a high standard and be committed to health and safety and adherence to policy and procedures. Ideally you will have experience of operating commercial handheld grounds maintenance and street cleansing equipment e.g mowers, strimmer, hedge trimmers and blowers, however this is not essential as training will be given.
If you think you are up to the challenge, we would love to hear from you.
Hours of work are 7.45am to 3.45pm Monday to Thursday and 7.45am to 1.45pm Friday. You may be required to work outside of these hours on occasions to meet the needs of the service.
