You will be a lone mobile worker so your personal health and safety awareness is essential, as is your awareness of the health and safety of colleagues.
You will represent the face of Yorkshire Water when meeting our customers so it is important that you have excellent communication and interpersonal skills.
You must be organised and able to plan your working day efficiently around the samples you are allocated.
As the sampling day is often subject to change you must be comfortable with this and show a flexible and adaptable approach to your work.
Taking clean water samples will require you to follow strict procedures so it is very important that you take due care and have an eye for detail.
All sampling data is logged, therefore basic IT skills are required and it is essential that you feel confident in the use of IT in your everyday role and that you show a willingness to learn relevant corporate systems.
As a lone mobile worker you will be provided with your own equipment and vehicle which are your responsibility to keep clean and tidy. A full valid EU driving licence is essential and you must be physically fit, enjoy working outdoors and be comfortable working at heights or in enclosed spaces if necessary.
While normal working hours are 37 hours Monday to Friday, you will be required to participate in a 1 in 8 week stand-by rota and expected to work at least 4 weekend days per year to cover holidays in the weekend team, so the ability to work flexibly and with a positive outlook is crucial.
Day to day the role involves travelling around the region as a lone worker, following strict procedures to collect water samples to fulfil the regulatory sampling programme. Samples are taken from randomly selected customer properties, water treatment works, service reservoirs and water towers.
As this is a customer facing role you will be expected to deliver exceptional customer service by resolving customer issues on site or reporting them appropriately, as well as identifying any issues on fixed assets that relate to sampling. Please note, all customer visits are on a cold call basis.
You will be required to manage your own work load to maximise efficiency and accurately record sampling data.
