This role will involve - but is not limited to - safely carrying out all aspects of liquid waste removal, drain jetting, unblocking and repair throughout London and the South of England for commercial, industrial and domestic customers.

Trainees will also attend the relevant courses specific to the industry as well as the role, all while working towards gaining a HGV license with the group’s help and support. Included in this are courses specifically geared towards safety.

CountyClean is known to develop and promote staff from within the company, and as such will cover the costs for all training, and offer candidates a full-time permanent role with an excellent professional company to work for.

Once fully qualified HGV Class 2, base salary increases to £30,000.00 p/a

After 12 months of service, base salary increases to £35,000.00 p/a

On target earnings once fully qualified as HGV Driver is £45,000.00 p/a
