A quick look at the role.

This role is designed as an initial training and experience placement, but one in which the job holder rotates into real roles where he / she is given tasks with measurable deliverables and outcomes. The purpose of this is to enable the individual to learn about Biffa Polymer’s production process, contribute to the success of the business and agree with Biffa a long-term career path after approximately one year.

The business runs a 24 / 7 manufacturing operation and the individual may from time to time be required to work shifts (including night and weekend working) as part of the process to build his / her experience.

Although the role will be based at our Seaham site, the individual will be asked to support our other two sites in Washington and Redcar from time to time.

Why it’s an opportunity not to be wasted.

  • Participating actively in job-based experience placements (primarily in manufacturing initially) to gain an experience of Biffa Polymer’s manufacturing processes and challenges.
  • Identification of manufacturing improvement projects, and management of lean initiatives to improve performance
  • Working as part of planned maintenance and shutdown teams.
  • Experiencing in a capital project, working on defined activities to meet the needs of the project manager – for example, factory acceptance tests, commissioning or writing of specifications.
  • Training in health and safety management and leadership of a health and safety task (e.g. an audit or an improvement project).
  • Participating in broader skills development outside the employee’s core work area – e.g. financial awareness, communication / presentation skills.
  • Working alongside like-minded waste professionals in a brilliantly diverse environment built on transparency – not bureaucracy.
  • A chance to join a forward-thinking, industry leader that openly welcomes self-driven individuals who are unafraid to question convention
