Drainage Technician x 2

Grade: Band 2C - £38,508

Royal Greenwich is a vibrant borough, with a rich history and diverse community. We're proud of the work we do to serve our residents. Our Repairs and Investment Service is looking to recruit experienced Drainage Technicians to join the busy repairs delivery service. Working across the borough, the role is based out of the Birchmere Centre, SE28 8BF.

We're looking for candidates with knowledge of installing, repairing and maintaining sewer systems and inspecting drain systems to locate blockages or leaks.

The Role

You'll be diagnosing problems with drain systems and identifying solutions to resolve them - including heavy lifting and excavating. You will need to be able to work on your own initiative or as part of a team, with the ability to replace waste pipe and all associated fittings, working in unison with the plumbing team. Experience in all aspects of drainage and plumbing is essential and it would be an advantage if you are able to carry out CCTV surveys.

A uniform and all necessary person protective equipment will be provided. A full manual driving licence is required with no previous DR10/DG10 disqualifications in the last 5 years as you will be required to drive a company vehicle.  C1 category would be an advantage.

If you have the relevant skills and experience along with a positive, can-do attitude and take pride in your work, we'd love to hear from you.
