Meet the Contractor Event

Wednesday 1st September, 2021

Following on from previous successes, there is now the chance to learn about job opportunities with global company SUEZ. This is being offered by way of a virtual event next month.

Organised by Under Construction, the Employment and Skills Team at Sedgemoor District Council and Somerset West & Taunton’s Community Employment Hubs, the session will give an overview of current vacancies, a behind the scenes look at SUEZ and the benefits they offer followed by a question and Answer session. The event will take place online via Microsoft Teams on 15th September offering two sessions; the first session will be between 11:00-12:00 and an evening session between 19:00-20:00.

Somerset West and Taunton’s Skills Lead said “This industry is a vital part of our communities, the teams at SUEZ were keyworkers throughout the pandemic but services have been affected with the national driver shortage and Covid-19 which is still prevalent in the area”. The local councils are keen to support the recruitment drive, “joining this team can provide individuals with a stable future” a spokesperson from SUEZ said. The refuse and recycling collections performed by SUEZ are part of a long-term contract with Somerset Waste Partnership.
