•Someone who can demonstrate the ability to work within a good health and safety framework and who is ideally used to working with Risk Assessments and Method Statements or has an understanding of how these from part of the working day.
•A positive ‘can do’ attitude, and a sense of pride in one’s own work, we believe the difference between us and the competition is the final 5%.

•Able to work at a fast pace, with a lot of variety and a good sense of initiative.

The following qualifications are desirable but not necessarily required, as all necessary training will be given to the successful applicant:

Shortlisted applicants will be expected to undertake a 2-part interview process. The first will be a meeting with the Managing Director to discuss your skill set, goals and experience, and more about the role itself, and the second part will be a practical skill assessment-based interview.
You will be expected to work a minimum of 40 hours per week, Monday – Friday, with a reasonable amount of overtime. During busier periods (particularly May – October) you will be required to work some weekend days also, but this will be agreed upon in advance with your manager.
