Working Pattern
Are you a professional HGV driver holding a Class C licence? Join us as a Refuse & Recycling Driver/Loader.

East Staffordshire Borough Council collects refuse and recycling from over 50,000 properties each week.

We are looking to fill a further vacancy within waste management to complement our existing team and maintain our high service standards.

We have recently reviewed our pay structure and are now able to offer an enhanced salary package to candidates of the right calibre. The Council offers a generous annual leave entitlement, a local government pension scheme and regularised hours. Hours of work are normally Monday to Friday. There is a requirement to work on public and Bank Holidays and occasionally at weekends to ensure the provision of an efficient and effective service.

You will become involved in:

• Driving of the allocated waste collection vehicle;
• Associated loading activities;
• Supervising of crew members;
• Supervising the collection of waste and subsequent tipping;
• Responsible for undertaking Daily Vehicle Maintenance Checks.

You must hold a HGV Class C licence and have previous HGV driving experience. You should also have a sound understanding of the health and safety implications of driving a refuse vehicle, combined with excellent customer care and communication skills. Ideally, you’ll have previous experience within the waste industry, but if not, full training will be given.
