VACANCIES – E.U. FUNDED ROADS PROJECT
The Ascension Island Government is still seeking to recruit suitably qualified and experienced persons to carry out the European Union funded EDF Roads Project. The following positions are available on a 2 year fixed term contract basis.
The project requires the services of two competent plant operators to perform skilled work operating plant in maintenance, construction, excavation or haulage work as detailed by the Project Manager. Assisting with other roadwork related tasks including manual work will also be a requirement. The successful candidates must be able to work well as a part of a team.
Due to the phased nature of the works and project peaks and troughs, the successful candidates will be required to carry out other duties in building and civil engineering works as and when required.
The successful candidates must have at least 3 years experience as a competent plant operator. A clean, valid driving licence for vehicles of classes A to J is essential. They should also have a working knowledge of Health & Safety at Work and good communication skills.
Preference will be given to those candidates who can competently operate two or more of the following, a lorry, a roller, a JCB excavator or a tracked vehicle.
A competitive salary will be paid and will depend upon skills, ability and experience. An appropriate food allowance will be paid and accommodation provided for persons recruited on single status contracts.
Please note that stevedore duties (Shipping Duties) will be a core function for the above posts.
The project is being funded by the European Union for a two year period but for local purposes the two year contracts will be standard AIG ones, and are offered on household or single status terms. The successful candidates might also be expected to share a house (two persons) as part of the accommodation arrangements.
