Things to Consider For information such as DBS checks, location of employer for public transport, difficult aspects of the work such as heavy lifting. We work in lots of different locations and whilst we provide transport from our base to the job, being located in our local area is a distinct advantage as we have some early starts and cannot wait. Reasonable physical fitness is required as this is a practical role that sometimes requires safe use of ladders, scaffolding, and handling of tools and materials on a wide variety of sites and terrain both finished and under construction. Normal colour vision is required. DBS checks are required for some of our sites.
