Things to consider

You will be working with the Retaining Walls Team indoors. There will be a certain amount of machinery and transport noise on site. This is a concrete manufacturing industry and therefore site based. You need to be able to drive to work as Poundfield’s location is in the country and does not have a public transport route.
