GEOTECHNICAL SITE TECHNICIAN BURGESS HILL

Due to continued expansion and success we are looking to appoint a trainee ‘Geotechnical Site Technician’ to work in our ground investigation team. The role will involve working in a team of technicians carryout the physical aspects of intrusive ground investigation, drilling boreholes and excavating trial holes, carrying-out field testing, setting up and managing project sites, monitoring, occasional lab work, and maintenance.

This is a moderately physical job involving operating our ground investigation drilling rigs, the use of small plant and hand tools, etc. There will be the opportunity to study for a HND in Land Drilling, and to eventually be in charge of your own site team as the company grows and expands.

No direct experience is necessary as full training and supervision will be given, though any experience with operating machinery or groundworks etc. would be useful. Some interest in geography, geology, construction or the environment would also be useful.

You will need to be able to work in a small team, as well as occasionally on your own. You will need a strong work ethic, be able to follow instructions precisely, and be committed to working safely. You will also need a clean driving license, and be willing to share driving a large transit sized van.

Our sites are throughout London and the South East, and site days involve early starts (6-7am typically) but are usually back at base by mid-afternoon (on average around 10hours door-to-door). Very occasionally site work may be further afield and require staying away from home. Ideally you will live within easy access of our base in Burgess Hill.

We are looking for the following characteristics in the ideal candidate:

  • A strong work ethic to get the job done.
  • Fit and able to cope with moderate level of physical work.
  • Confidence in operating plant and machinery.
  • Able to take instruction, show respect and be willing to get involved and to learn.
  • Polite communication skills, especially when meeting clients.
  • Punctual and reliable.
  • Someone looking for a new career with good prospects for promotion and skills development.

 

A suitable remuneration package will be offered, ranging between £18,000 and £24,000 depending on experience and background. We also provide a daily site allowance for subsistence of £10 per day.

In the first instance please send your CV and a brief covering letter to jobs@landscience.co.uk. There is no closing date for applications, but we are looking to fill the vacancy between now and August 2019.
