Plant Operative (Asphalt)

Salary: Circa £25,000

Ever since it was founded in 1891, John Wainwright and Company Ltd has been going places. The question is: would you like to come too?

We are a proudly independent quarrying business in the heart of the Mendips. We extract and process basalt from our Moons Hill quarry, and sell premium construction materials throughout the region. These products include asphalt, aggregates and formation materials.

We are currently seeking an experienced and flexible Asphalt Plant Operative to join our small team at our Moons Hill Asphalt Plant.

This is a multi-functional role, covering asphalt production/mixing, load out operations, loading shovel and general plant duties. With proven industry experience, you will be confident operating in one or more of these areas. As you will be expected to rotate between functions, you will be adaptable and willing to learn/develop in other areas.

You will have a good level of literacy and numeracy and will be confident using IT and internal systems. You will be highly organised, methodical and forward thinking. We are looking for individuals who can demonstrate a ‘right first time' approach and a great eye for detail. An ability to build relationships and communicate with internal and external stakeholders, including staff and customers is also needed.

A clean driving licence is required for this role. NVQs in asphalt production, mobile plant or weighbridge operations would be an advantage but are not essential as full training will be provided.

Due to the nature of the role, you will need to be prepared to work a variety of shifts including early starts and weekends on rota as required

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