Serco's Environmental Services provide a complete waste and recycling service on behalf of our residents and local communities. With a professional, dedicated and friendly team of Street Cleansing staff, 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 LGV Class 2/Cat C Drivers to join our team of essential key workers and help us make a positive difference to the environment we all live and work in.

You will be the public face of Serco's Environmental Services team in the community. Our trucks are big and the first thing our customers see, and so, for Collections Teams, 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 and your team of Refuse Loaders will set off on your pre-planned route, collecting waste and recycling from residential homes and commercial properties.

We know that Environmental Services workers are our community's unsung heroes and it can be pretty hard 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 Driverswho now hold Supervisor, Operations Manager and Contract 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 toundertake additional qualifications. These include, but 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.

We are Armed Forces friendly. We welcome applications from ex-Armed Forces personnel, reservists, armed forces veterans, cadet instructors and military spouses/partners

What you'll need to do the role?

To be considered for a position within our team, all we ask is that you hold a valid LGV Class 2/Cat C licence, Driver CPC, plenty of enthusiasm and a big smile, as well as being willing to help out the Loaders whilst on your rounds to enable your team to hit their targets.

Previous experience of working with refuse collection and street cleansing is not essential, as we will provide any additional training you may need.
