About the Job
Looking for experienced HGV driver ideally, who has been involved with transporting road barrels up to 44 tonnes in total with the tractor unit. The job involves filling the barrel at the clients location, Wyke with treated effluent (low hazardous waste) via a batchmeter/loading cone then transporting this to Yorkshire Water’s treatment works at Esholt, the barrel is dropped off & discharged there , this is a “drop & swap” so the driver brings back an already emptied barrel. This is repeated throughout the shift usually in tandem with a 2nd driver (occasionally a 3rd driver on nights), each driver would normally be expected to do 6 loads dependent on effluent levels/traffic. The shifts are 16.00 start and last 12 hours per shift. Any suitable driver would need to come to site in advance of starting work for a site paid induction (usually takes an hour but needs to be booked), they will then shadow one of our drivers over a few loads to familiarise them with the job. Drivers may also be required to move our internal barrels around site as required but this is not until the become more experienced with the site. Drivers will need work boots, arms & legs to be covered & a hi-vis vest/top. Client can provided hard hat/safety glasses & work gloves as required.
