Compost and Prep Hall Cleaners



Salary up to £20,000 plus overtime

Closing date 28 Nov 2017




We’re looking for people to help us operate and maintain Waterbeach Waste Management Park – our state-of-the-art waste treatment plant near Cambridge.

We deliver a range of waste services from our 400 acre Waste Management Park at Waterbeach – about three miles north of Cambridge. The site has four technology parks;
• A state-of-the-art materials recycling facility (MRF), which can process mixed recyclable materials from households and businesses.
• Mechanical Biological Treatment facility – this takes all of Cambridgeshire’s residual (black bag) waste.
• Composting
• Landfill.

In total, the site manages over 300,000 tonnes of waste every year, including all of Cambridgeshire’s household rubbish. The site is looking to expand in further technologies which could lead to the development of a brand new treatment plant.

We are looking for cleaners to join our team at Waterbeach who will be responsible for the Compost Hall and Preparation Hall. The role will include heavy duty cleaning and industrial cleaning of large scale mechanical composting and preparation equipment and machinery. You will also be required to complete daily checks to ensure the plant can operate correctly. You must adhere to health and safety requirements whilst on site. You will be working in a team of around 8 people who all have a great team spirit, are supportive and want to get the job done safely so we’d ideally like you to have some experience of working within a team.

We operate on three different shift patterns:
• 06:00am – 14:00pm.
• 14:00pm – 22:00pm.
• 22:00pm – 06:00am.

The salary is up to £20,000 per annum based on a 40 hour week. There is also potential for overtime which would be paid at the following rates:
• Time and a half on Saturdays.
• Double time on Sundays and Bank Holidays.

Amey also offer a great benefits package. You will be entitled to 24 days annual leave plus 8 days bank holidays! We also have a pension plan, retail discounts, salary sacrifice schemes, including childcare vouchers and a Cycle to Work scheme, and dental/health/travel insurance. There is also a potential for overtime to be offered.
