County council recruitment event aims to fill more than 50 jobs

More than 50 jobs are on offer at Leicestershire County Council in the authority’s highways, transport and waste management teams – and jobseekers are invited to a recruitment event to find out more.

The council is seeking to recruit to a variety of posts including HGV drivers, highways workers, waste site advisors, tree surgeons and transport officers.

There are also trainee and graduate schemes, apprenticeships and numerous casual vacancies waiting to be filled.

Anyone interested is invited to a recruitment event at County Hall in Glenfield between 11am and 4pm on Thursday March 3.”In line with the national picture, we are experiencing significant problems recruiting to some vacancies and we are hoping that our recruitment event will attract new staff. Our event is being run in partnership with Reed and we are specifically looking to generate interest in roles across highways and transport as well as our waste operation.

Councillor Ozzy O’Shea, cabinet member for highways and transport said: “We are looking at not only getting good candidates into the departments, but also increasing diversity across the workforce. I would urge anyone looking for a new job to come along to our recruitment event and find out more about the roles we have on offer

Visitors will have the chance to talk to staff already doing the jobs, ask questions and get a real feel for the roles. There will be the opportunity to see how employees could progress in their chosen field and what training is on offer.

Those interested in agency work can meet the council’s recruitment partners Reed and local recruitment agencies specialising in a variety of temporary roles including driving.

Free parking is available in the visitor’s car park and anyone attending is asked to report to main reception on arrival.

Some of the benefits of working for the Leicestershire County Council are:

  • 24 days annual leave a year (five days extra after 5 years continuous service)
  • 8 public holidays a year
  • Flexible working
  • Training and development opportunities
  • Access to continuous professional development
  • Working groups for LGBT staff, disabled workers, carers and a black workers group
