Company Background
Our client is one of the UK’s largest recycling and waste operative companies and has successful partnerships with several local authorities across the country.
Established in the 1970s, the company has grown from a paper and cardboard recycling specialist into one of the UK’s most dynamic recycling companies, collecting, sorting and trading a wide range of recovered materials from commercial, industrial and household collections.
Role Overview
The role will require the successful candidate to prepare, service, and maintain the HGVs that keep the company running smoothly.  
Extensive experience as an HGV fitter/mechanic is vital, as all vehicles will need to pass stringent company tests before being declared roadworthy, or ready to be sent out for MOT.
MOTs are completed every six weeks, so this will form a significant part of the planned maintenance schedule.
Other tasks will include attending breakdowns, fixing cosmetic damage, and ensuring that the units adhere to standard safety regulations.
Ideal Candidate
To be successful in this application, the candidate will need to have the following experience:
  • Be an experienced HGV fitter/mechanic
  • To have undertaken service work
  • MOT prep work (actual MOT experience not required as this is completed by a third party)
  • Experience working for hire fleets or service providers is desirable
  • Candidates who have not worked on HGVs but have experience working on buses/coaches may be considered
