7.5T Food Waste Driver

Working Hours:  Monday - Friday 6:30am-2:30pm 

Salary: £24,162.63

 

Serco's Environmental Services provide a complete waste and recycling service on behalf of the residents in the local community. With a professional, dedicated and friendly team, we ensure that streets, homes and businesses are kept clean, safe and tidy, whilst providing the very best levels of customer service to all members of the community that we serve. And right now, we have an opportunity for like-minded 7.5 T Food Waste Driver to join our team of essential workers and help us make a positive difference to the environment we all live in.

 

First and foremost, you will be the public face of Serco's Environmental Services team in the community.  Our trucks are bold and the first thing our customers see, so before setting out on your rounds, you will ensure that your vehicle safety checks are completed and that your truck is clean and work ready. Once those checks are completed, you will set off on your pre-planned route either alone or alongside a colleague, collecting waste to keep the local environment tidy. We are on the front line when it comes to making sure our community remains a beautiful, safe and clean place to live and work, a responsibility we take great pride in.

 

We know that environmental service workers are our community's unsung heroes and it can be pretty hard manual work, but we can offer you the opportunity to go home each day with a sense of community spirit, pride in your work, belonging within a supportive and diverse team and the knowledge that your work is making a difference in helping to promote a cleaner, greener living and working space for everyone.

 

In addition to job satisfaction, we also offer a fantastic work/life balance. With pre-planned routes and set start and finish times, there are no nasty surprises or late finishes with Serco, leaving you with plenty of time to spend with your family and friends.

 

 

You won't be doing this alone either. Our team is made up of professional, friendly and supportive teammates, including managers who began their careers with Serco as Loaders and Drivers who now hold Supervisor and Operations Manager titles.

 

We are dedicated to the ongoing development and career progression of our Drivers, with outstanding training opportunities made available to you, along with the chance to undertake additional qualifications. These include, are are not limited to, Transport Manager CPC, Team Leader and Management training, and a supportive management team who will provide guidance and advice to ensure you achieve all that you want to with Serco.

 

 

What do I need to do the role?

 

Our residents are fond of their garden gates and as such, we like to make sure our drivers won't be the ones to damage them!

 

To be considered for a position within our team, all we ask is that you hold a clean 7.5 tonne driving licence (Class 1/2), CPC license, plenty of enthusiasm and a big smile. It would go down well with the loading team if you're happy to get involved to help them when you can as well.

 

You will have a basic understanding of IT equipment as this role will see you operating a tablet, ensuring accurate reports of bin collections are done.

 

Knowledge of the local area or experience within a similar role is desireable.

 

We are looking to hear from candidates who are fine with the early starts and have the willingness to go the extra mile when required. You will be expected to be someone who can demonstrate strong customer service skills and is happy in dealing with members of the public.
