You’ll already be familiar with high pressure jetting equipment, but you may not have drainage experience. That’s OK — we’re happy to train you to the appropriate standard. A high pressure water jetting certificate would be good, but it’s not essential.
You’ll need a UK driving licence with no more than 3 penalty points and hold an up to date CSCS card.
You’ll be polite and respectful when dealing with customers and the public, and observe all health and safety procedures. And you’ll love working outdoors.
Being flexible is essential too: we operate 24/7 so there will be early starts, weekend working and an out-of-hours call-out rota.
