Innovative social enterprise and charity Cae Post, based in Trewern near Welshpool, is looking for environmentally-focused people to join its team as HGV drivers – and you don’t even need to have a lorry driving licence.
As a social enterprise with a 30-year history of working to increase recycling across Powys and North Shropshire, Cae Post is looking to recruit up to two new team members over the next 12 months.
These new jobs come only two months after Cae Post had to make 17 people redundant when its kerbside recycling and sorting contract with Powys County Council came to an end.
Speaking about the new jobs, Sue Packer, General Manager at Cae Post, said: “Our drivers are absolutely key to the services we deliver. We are looking for passionate people who want an opportunity to do their bit to help the environment.”
The roles involve visiting Cae Post’s customers across the county and bringing materials back to Trewern where they are sorted and recycled. According to Sue, she is willing to hear from anyone interested in the jobs, even if they don’t currently have a HGV licence.
“Our mission is to provide meaningful work and job opportunities, so we are willing to help people train to gain their HGV licence. To us, a commitment to the environment and to Cae Post are the most important requirements for the job.”
Cae Post is a business just like any other but, as a social enterprise, the income we generate helps us fulfil our objectives to give everyone a chance to be part of the working world. We are proud to have been involved in this work for over 30 years.
