Leatherhead, Sites across London & The South East
We are recruiting for an Invasive Weed Technician to take responsibility for sites across London and the South East. Our client is a leading Landscaping and Grounds Maintenance company whose work also includes Winter Gritting and Site Clearance. The treatment of invasive weeds is an increasingly important sector for them and they are looking to build their team to cope with a growing demand for these services. In the winter months you would assist in other areas of the business ensuring that you have continuous employment throughout the year.
You will attend residential and commercial properties on pre-booked appointments to carry out treatments for Japanese Knotweed and other invasive plant species. Usually this will involve the application of herbicide with a knapsack sprayer but you will also be involved in cutting, mulching and clearance during the winter months and assist with excavation works as needed. Using the company’s specialist Mobile App you will document the work completed and report back to your office team.
This role will cover a large area so you must be happy to travel across the South East – a fully funded company vehicle is provided together with a mobile phone.
Good communication skills are important as you will often be the face of the company, interacting with clients and suppliers as well as your own office team. Training will be given in the identification and treatment of the various species of Invasive Weeds.
* Some experience of herbicide spraying, with PA1 & PA6 certification
