Do you love working outdoors? Are you a hard-working, team player? Then we want to hear from you. Brentwood Borough Council delivers an in-house residential and commercial refuse and recycling collection service across the borough and are currently looking to recruit a number of Driver/Loaders to join the team.
As a qualified Driver you will have the minimum requirement of a clean category C LGV licence as well as an up-to-date CPC.
Successful applicants will lead a team of up to three refuse loaders to deliver an efficient and effective waste and recycling collection service to residential and commercial premises in Brentwood.
You will be responsible for your allocated refuse collection vehicle, undertake daily vehicle checks and report any defects to the responsible person, as well as ensuring health and safety practices are adhered too.
You will need to be a team player with outstanding behaviours, flexible attitude and approach to ensure the Service meets all its objectives.
