Average of 46.25 Hours per Week Worked on an Annualised Basis between March and December

Working with the refuse team for Boston Borough Council is more than just a job. It's a career... with benefits, which include a career-average pension and up to 31 days' leave each year plus bank holidays.

But it's more than that. There's immense job satisfaction. If residents know nothing else about what the council does, they all know it collects their waste. Our bin lorry crews are some of the most appreciated of all our staff. Our waste services functions regularly feature as the highest rated by the public. People really appreciate what the refuse collection crews do for them.
Applicants should have a keen interest in the environment and enjoy working outdoors in all conditions to undertake the role in a safe, efficient and effective manner to achieve high levels of customer satisfaction.  Full training will be given as part of our induction programmed. 

We are looking to appoint Seasonal Refuse Drivers and Operatives to join our residual/recyclable waste collection service within the Borough of Boston and areas of East Lindsey.  Previous waste collection experience and/or relevant NV would be advantageous but is not essential.
