Loading Shovel Driver

Salary: Circa £26,000

We are seeking a self-motivated and professional individual for the position of Loading Shovel/Dumper Driver.  The role is full time, working a 48 hour week with occasional weekends when necessary. Shift patterns are likely to be Monday to Friday working either 5am to 3pm or 7am to 5pm.

Working in a small team reporting to the Quarry Manager, the post holder will be responsible for operating and ensuring the smooth running of the loading of materials in order to fulfil customer and quality assurance requirements in the supply of high quality aggregates. The post holder will also be responsible for ensuring that all legal obligations required by relevant acts or bodies are adhered to.

On a daily basis the post holder will load customer heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) and company stock dumpers, monitor stock piles and working areas and ensure vehicle maintenance duties are carried out. When not loading vehicles, the post holder will provide relief driver cover on the rigid and articulated dumpers. Due to the requirements of the role, it is essential that applicants hold appropriate Plant Driving Licences as well as a full, clean Driving Licence. Experience within the quarry industry would be a distinct advantage.

Excellent communication and logistical skills with an eye for detail are all crucial for this role. The “right first time” attitude is essential in this fast moving environment as is the adherence to legal requirements. Basic numeracy skills are essential in this role but training will be given in all other aspects.

To apply for this role, please forward a covering letter and CV, outlining your suitability for the role to HR@wainwright.co.uk or submit an application form by 9.00am on the closing date of 21/10/2016.
