Overview

Salary: Competitive

Tarmac is the UK’s leading sustainable building materials and construction solutions business. Our innovative products and solutions not only deliver the infrastructure needed to grow the UK economy today but also help to create a more sustainable built environment for the country’s long-term future. 
 
This is a really exciting project in Birmingham and you would benefit from being a local resident as we are currently looking for Weighbridge Operatives to join our friendly team based at Tarmac’s brand new site in Washwood Heath in Birmingham. Our team will unlock the natural attributes of the stone we process to deliver standard and specialist aggregate solutions, such as gravel, crushed stone, sand, slag and recycled concrete. We will also mix Ready-Mix Concrete in our batch plant and asphalt which is a composite material commonly used to surface roads and parking lots.  

Reporting directly to the Plant Supervisor, you will be responsible for general administration, monitoring site reception and the day to day running of the weighbridge. This involves ticketing lorries in and out of site, processing plant controls and maintaining the high personal safety expectations of the site, including high standards of housekeeping. You will be working with a team focused on great customer service, especially providing good quality material and on-time deliveries to a varied customer base and to achieve this, you will need to work collaboratively with the rest of the team. 

You do not need previous experience of working with asphalt as we can provide full training from our friendly teams at other local sites. However, you do need to be a passionate learner and committed to learning new skills. You will also need to work in a collaborative manner and rise to challenges as this is a brand new site we are opening. You will also be curious and motivated to drive not only your development, but to help with the growth of the team too. A commitment to high safety standards, both for yourself and your team, will also help to make the site a success. Finally, good customer service and communication skills with the ability to build friendly rapport with a wide range of people would be beneficial.
