Veolia has a great opportunity for a Plant Operator to join our team in Welshpool. In this role you’ll be responsible for the safe unloading  of liquid waste onsite and operate fixed plant machinery to process waste water. 

It is a full-time, permanent opportunity in a supportive and friendly team. This will be a Monday to Friday role, however occasional weekend shifts might be required. 

In your day-to-day activities, you’ll comply with, and promote, Occupational Health, Safety and Environmental policies and Site Safe Operating Procedures. And in the long run, you’ll contribute to a sustainable future for Australia.

Opportunity and growth, there for the taking
In this role, you’ll be trained across a number of concrete skills for the job in hand. Many of our Operators have continued to progress their career with us, moving into supervisor, manager and site manager roles. 

Great people... and a company that cares 
From your teammates in operations, to colleagues and partners across WRR & Veolia, you’ll find people who care about doing a good job. And you’ll belong in a company that truly cares - about the customer, the community, the environment... and you.

‘Team’ works here - it’s who we are 
Reporting to the Maintenance Manager, you’ll work closely with a small team, as well as various suppliers and contractors. And you’ll learn from them, as much as they learn from you. 

Stimulation and challenge, delivered
While ‘Operations’ is about process and rhythm, you’ll find plenty of variety in your role. In addition to operating the plant, you’ll play a key role in measuring and reporting the facility’s output, maintaining a robust safety culture and identifying more efficient ways of working that don’t compromise safety or quality.
