An exciting opportunity has arisen to join us. We are looking for someone to run the recycling plant in the evenings. You would be solely responsible for processing our segregated waste plastics (which include things like bucket, wheelie bins, manufacturers scrap, crates, etc) and granulating them to a regrind.

This is a very responsible role and a great opportunity for an individual to make a real difference in a very small company. The job involves feeding plastic for recycling onto the conveyor to either the granulator or shredder. You will be moving materials from the yard to the unit, keeping production running smoothly and efficiently, at key operational levels (often one tonne per hour), changing bags of finished product and weighing and marking. There are also some very basic paperwork requirements. A FLT license would be of real benefit.

You will need to be used to physical work and comfortable working in colder temperatures, particularly in the winter months (although PPE is, of course, provided).

The successful candidate will be required to work an evening shift from 16.30 to 22.30 Monday to Friday (or Sunday to Thursday if preferred). There may be the occasional business need for some flexibility around these hours if you are able to offer that. This job is a lone worker role, so it imperative that the right candidate is resilient, hardworking and really cares about their job. As a business, we have a reputation for great quality product and service. It is important that this key addition to our team shares these values.

The pay rate is dependent upon matching skill set, experience level (although not necessarily in the recycling industry), and hours, but will be between the rates of £11.00 and £14.00
