We are looking to recruit 2 x HGV Class II drivers to join our client in Coalville, Leicestershire as a Vacuum Tanker Operative to provide services such as:

  • Driving and operating a JetVac Tanker (Class 2)

  • Assist the Drainage Operative clearing and unblocking drainage blockages

  • Leading a two-man team operating high pressure jetting equipment and jet vacuum units

  • Attending drainage related issues, including emergency call-outs to deal with blockages or cleaning pipes during regular maintenance programs

About you:

Firstly, you need to love working outdoors in all weather and you must be physically fit as the job involves some heavy lifting. Ideally you’ll have experience in using Jet-Vac equipment; although working within the waste industry experience is not necessary as we will provide training to get you to the required standard to operate Jet-vac tankers.

We take our customer satisfaction seriously, so you will need to be polite, kind and respectful when dealing with customers and the general public and observe all health and safety requirements. Being flexible is essential too as you are required to cover a 40-hour working week which will involve varying start times. You will also be required to work on a 1 in 6 call out rota when you’ll be available to pick up work out of office hours.

You must be able to work on your own and as part of a team while supporting other operatives or engineers and you will need to be able to carry out daily and weekly maintenance checks on your vehicles and pumps to ensure all equipment is fully operational.

You’ll need a minimum of a HGV Class 2 licence and should have a certificate of professional competence (CPC) to be considered for the role.
