Recruitment of Casual Drivers

We are looking for drivers to join our casual pool to be able to drive a range of vehicles such as vans and tippers, mechanical sweepers and refuse collection vehicles in support of our priority services.

As well as a confident and competent driver, you will be a strong team player, committed to delivering quality services to customers and have a sound approach to managing health and safety.   Drivers are also expected to demonstrate leadership qualities as you may be responsible for the performance and safety of your crew, for example ensuring that your team works safely and delivers services to the standards we expect.  

Drivers will be expected to have a flexible approach to work and be available at short notice to cover for absences.  As team players, drivers are expected to support street cleaning, refuse and recycling collections working alongside their colleagues flexibly.

Occasional weekend working will be needed and a flexible approach to work is essential to ensure that rounds are clear each day. 

Full training, uniform and PPE will be provided.
