Job Description

Serco's Environmental Services provide a complete grounds maintenance and street cleansing service on behalf of the residents and community of Watton.

We are experts in designing, implementing, and managing environmental service, with capability spanning highways, housing, parks and open spaces, arboriculture works and sports pitches. We deliver to national standards to meet the needs of the community maintaining a clean, green and safe environment, whilst providing the very best levels of customer service to the community that we serve.

Right now, have an exciting opportunity for a Grounds Operative to join our team of essential workers and help us to make a positive difference to the environment we all live in.

The role will see you take responsibility to carry out a range of landscape tasks including: grass-cutting, shrub-pruning, hedge-cutting, planting, weed control, minor sports maintenance tasks, drive a vehicle and use a range of equipment to deliver the horticultural standards that meet the requirements of the Contract Specification.

We know that our environmental team are our communities unsung heroes and it can be pretty hard work, but we can offer you the opportunity to go home each day with a sense of community spirit, pride in your work, belonging within a supportive and diverse team, and the knowledge that your work is directly responsible for helping to promote a cleaner, greener living and working space for everyone in Watton.

Candidate Description

We are looking to hear from candidates who are passionate, enthusiastic and strive to give the best possible service. You will be a self-starter who is self-motivated who is willing to go the extra mile when required.
