The job itself

A vacancy has arisen for a Road worker level 1 within the in-house Highways Maintenance team who deliver the day-to-day maintenance of the highway and footway networks within the East Riding and based at the Beverley highways depot.

We seek 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 C entitlement or above. Should you not have a Category C entitlement or above there will also be the requirement to undertake an HGV medical and gain Category C provisional entitlement on your licence within the six-month probationary period of employment.

A NRSWA Operative certificate would be advantageous although training will be provided, as would knowledge and experience of Construction Health and Safety legislation, in relation to highways works.

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 to increase the basic salary. There is also the opportunity to sign up to either the Highways out of hours emergency callout team or Winter maintenance team to increase the basic salary.

The council is committed to the development and training of its employees to ensure they develop and unlock potential for the future. Successful applicants will receive training around health and safety and ongoing skills development.
