You must be confident with lone working duties both at night and during the day.

What we’re looking for in our Car Park Attendant

The roles involve direct traffic management and patrolling duties and you will need to demonstrate initiative and the ability to work under pressure. These posts involve walking between 5-7 miles daily and also involve weekend working and evening work, so you must have a flexible approach to working hours and locations. Shifts and working patterns are not fixed and will vary according to service and seasonal demand

As our Car Park Attendant we will provide you with uniform and protective clothing as you will be working outdoors in all weathers. You must have a full manual driving licence.
