My client is a large utilities contractor that is looking for a Water Sampler to cover multiple water sites. All of the work flow is attached to various water sites such as new housing developments, land fill sites ( ground water borehole monitoring ) and rivers monitoring trade effluent.

As a result you will spend a lot of time travelling between sites and must be comfortable driving daily to site up to 3 hours away. Once you have been trained you will be working in an individual capacity where your daily plans and workflow will be delivered to you from a tablet / laptop.
Essential criteria:
Full UK drivers license and be able to park a company van in your area.
Ability to work outdoors
Be comfortable driving in a field based capacity
Ability to use a tablet / laptop
Live in or north of Coventry
Be able to work as part of a 1 in 3 weekend standby rota ( You will be paid £50 per weekend for being on standby and any hours worked will be paid at X1.5)
This role will involve removing man hole covers so a base level of physical fitness is required.
On offer is a starting salary of £19.67000 if you have previous water sampling experience a slightly higher salary is available and the role is based on a 37 hour week. PPE, company van and training will all be provided.
