The team share an "out of hours" standby rota, which includes some weekend work - after all, the sites we service are continuously in operation!

The prospect of delivering continuous improvement ideas and solutions which are practical and data driven will excite you and allow you to contribute to our growth and further enhance our strong reputation in the industry.

We are looking for you to be able to demonstrate previous experience in operating and maintaining various types of treatment facilities and pumps. With strong waste water and /or clean water treatment process knowledge and a good mechanical mind set, your significant industry-relevant electrical and control panel experience will truly come to the fore and ensure you are a highly valuable member of our team.

In addition, you’ll also have either a NVQ level 3 or 4 (Electrical or Engineering Maintenance), experience as an electrical apprentice or JIB registered as an approved electrician or technician.
