Salary
£28,545 - £30,771 per annum
Closing date
31 Mar 2024

Play an active role on the frontline of maintaining a safe and healthy Borough. 

At the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, we put local people at the heart of everything we do. Keeping the local area clean and tidy – from the housing we manage, to the streets we maintain – is central to making our Borough a great place to live. From dealing with fly tipped waste, to cleaning up graffiti, the dedicated members of our Environment and Estate Service are active every day of the working week. Together, they help us all to champion a good quality of life.

The Role:

As a Mobile Estate Operative in one of our Bulk Waste teams, you will visit and inspect a range of locations every day. We cover 218 sites, so every day will be different. You shift will start at 8am and you will work in a pair. Together, you will assess risks, then remove and dispose of hazardous and bulky waste items from estates across the Borough. You will make sure waste is handled and transported safely, and that the area is left clean and tidy when you finish. You will take waste away, to be recycled wherever possible. In the course of your duties, you will operate lifting hoists and other equipment. We will also expect you to record each job on a device we provide, to help us deliver on our promises to clean up 95 per cent of bulky waste reported within 48 hours.

Please refer to the Job Description for more information

About You:

You are a team player with a positive attitude and a commitment to doing a great job. You will need to be well organised and able to take the initiative to solve problems. The ability to identify potential risks is also important. From a practical point of view, you can learn many of the tasks required in this role while doing the job – for example, we will provide training in safe manual handling of heavy and bulky items. But we will expect you to be able to drive, and understand parking regulations. You will also need to get to know the local area if you are not familiar with it already.

Please note that in order to be eligible for this role you must hold a C1 driving licence.
