Full job description

Are you practical, flexible, self-motivated and willing to work outside in all weathers? Do you have hands-on skills acquired at work or through a love of DIY, such as operating maintenance equipment (ideally more advanced than domestic home tools)? Looking for a job with plenty of variety? As General Maintenance Operative (think handyman/woman) at our Ewelme depot in South Oxfordshire you will be responsible for general maintenance and upkeep of the depot and yard, as well as small general works at our nearby Benson head office (no electrical or major building work). We're offering a permanent contract, starting weekly pay of up to £554.34 and a host of benefits, including:

- Discretionary company bonuses
- Pension scheme (you contribute 5% of pay, Grundon matches this) with life insurance cover
- 30 days’ annual leave (inclusive of 8 bank holidays), which will increase with service, plus the option to buy up to 5 extra days' holiday

What you'll be doing as General Maintenance Operative
- Assisting with loading/unloading bins on to vehicles.
- Maintaining the grounds - think hedge-cutting, plant upkeep, weed control, tree maintenance and gritting.
- Ensuring internal post is transferred daily between Ewelme and head office.
- Carry out occasional minor repair works at customers’ premises, e.g. post repairs.
- Providing cover as a Waste Wheeler mate if needed.

What we're looking for in our General Maintenance Operative
- Current driving licence and, ideally a forklift licence (we will train you up if not).
- You're competent at operating maintenance equipment safely (e.g. hedge-cutter, lawn-mower, electric drill), plus general DIY (hanging pictures, fixing shelves, changing light bulbs etc).
- Great team worker with ability to work on own initiative.
- Ideally, you have your own small hand tools.

Working hours: 42.5 hours per week, Mon-Fri, 6am to 3.30pm, although flexibility is required (e.g. early morning winter gritting)
