A recruitment drive has been launched to fill 40 posts created at a new waste treatment facility under construction in South Yorkshire.

Jobs available include technical, managerial, engineering, skilled, semi-skilled and maintenance roles at the £750m development at Manvers, Rotherham, which will be commissioned early next year and be fully operational by July 2015.

Colin Fletcher, of Shanks - a leading international sustainable waste management business - said: “We are delighted to be at the stage where we are starting to recruit our team for this exciting new development which will revolutionise the treatment of leftover household waste from Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham.

“We need to fill a wide range of roles and we look forward to taking this major step forward and getting people on board ready for the opening next summer. After this initial recruitment drive we will also be holding a job shop event in October to make further appointments.”

The new waste plant will treat up to 265,000 tonnes of leftover household waste per year.
