Great people... and a company that cares 
From your teammates in operations, to colleagues and partners across 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 Project Supervisor, you will lead a small team of operators and liaise with 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. 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. 


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 Leading Hands have continued to progress their career with us, moving into supervisor, manager and other leadership roles.
