A vacancy has arisen for a Roadworker Level 2 within the in-house Highway Team, who deliver the day to day maintenance of the highway and footway networks within the East Riding.
We seek a reliable, hard-working and enthusiastic individual to join our successful team to deliver a range of projects from small scale patching, drainage and footway repairs to county wide paver surfacing operations, together with general highway construction and maintenance works.
The Highways Team have a strong ‘can do’ attitude which is focussed on delivering high standards of work to all highway users.
Candidates must be able to demonstrate a proven track record of working in the highway maintenance or construction industry, together with a forward-thinking attitude to ensure the service continues to build on its previous successes. A full clean driving licence is essential, preferably with Category C1 entitlement. Should you not have a Category C1 entitlement or above there will also be the requirement to undertake a HGV medical within the six month probationary period of employment.
A NRSWA Operative certificate would be advantageous, although training can be provided, as would knowledge and experience of Construction Health and Safety legislation, in relation to highways works.
The vacancy is available at the Beverley Highways depot. You will work a standard 37 hour week Monday to Friday plus an additional 2 hours contractual overtime. Additional overtime is also worked on a planned basis with the potential to increase the basic salary (£21,393.70) up to £27,000 per year.
The Highways department also provides a Highways out of hours emergency standby service throughout the year. This service is to attend emergency situations which occur on the Highway network outside of normal working hours, and you may be called upon to participate in this standby rota.
