The possession of a current clean driving license, HGV class license is preferred. 5. Vehicle maintenance provides a service to the partners of the DWP, and is dependent on maintaining a good working relationship to secure contracts. It is, therefore, imperative that every effort is made to foster a good liaison with DWP operations supervisors and managers, DCC Highways and other partners and suppliers 6. To maintain records as directed 7. To use as directed any system of communication provided.8. To pressure wash and clean vehicles and plant, to clean the workshop or other parts of the depot as requested. 9. Deputise for the Vehicle Maintenance Team Leader when required 10.
