Due to the nature of our client's business they also ask that their employees demonstrate flexibility towards working location and hours which may involve extended days, weekends or nights away from home. You must also hold a valid full UK driving licence but company transport will be provided.

Our client is required to comply with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006 and verify that all its employees have the right to legally work in the UK, if successful you will be asked to provide documentary evidence of this. Unfortunately, they are unable to consider applicants who are seeking visa sponsorship.
