Job Description

Choose a career with the UK’s biggest independent drainage specialist 
The Lanes Group needs a van-based Jetting Engineer on the front line, to join our growing depot network. 
About you: 
You’ll already be familiar with high pressure jetting equipment, but you may not have drainage experience. That’s OK — we’re happy to train you to the appropriate standard. A high pressure water jetting certificate would be good, but it’s not essential. 

You’ll need a UK driving licence with no more than 3 penalty points and hold an up to date CSCS card. 
You’ll be polite and respectful when dealing with customers and the public, and observe all health and safety procedures. And you’ll love working outdoors. 

Being flexible is essential too: we operate 24/7 so there will be early starts, weekend working and an out-of-hours call-out rota. 
The job: 
You’ll be operating van-mounted jetting equipment for a wide range of drain-related issues. Based out of a local depot, your projects will cover a wide range of drainage related issues, from emergency call-outs and blockages to cleaning pipes during regular maintenance programmes.  
You will visit various types of clients and sites, from commercial, residential, and industrial to specialist sectors like rail, road, utility, and so on. 


Hours: Monday to Friday, 40 hours per week (8am - 4.30pm) 


Being flexible is essential too as you will be required to travel to site. 


  • Enhanced overtime rates (Time 1.5 Weekends, Time 1.4 Weekdays) 
  • 21 days holiday + bank holidays 
  • Life Assurance; 
  • Auto enrolment pension scheme; 
  • Full corporate uniform; 
  • Free onsite parking; 
  • Friendly working environment; 

This is a full time position with overtime potential; regular training (including our own City & Guilds qualifications) 
About Lanes: 
At the Lanes Group, we believe firmly in looking after our people and our customers. It’s a big part of who we are. It’s also one of the reasons that we have a £200 million+ turnover, over 2200 staff and a network of depots across the country.
