Oxford United are excited to welcome Grundon Waste Management as Match Sponsor for our Sky Bet League 1 encounter with Bristol Rovers on Saturday, 12.30pm Kick Off.

Grundon is the UK’s largest family-owned waste management and environmental services company. Headquartered in Benson, near Wallingford, Grundon has had a local presence in Oxfordshire since 1946.

Since then, the business has grown in the area and now employs over 800 people in the South of England, with operating facilities in Banbury and Ewelme, along with the Head Office in Benson.

Grundon currently has a wide range of vacancies across the county and its wider operating area to suit all skills, including Apprentice Sales Executives, HGV Mechanics, LGV Drivers, Chemists, as well as Labourer roles.
With environmental issues high on the agenda, it has never been a better time to consider a career in the waste management and environmental services industry.

Apprentice Sales Executive
If you are a natural people person and love the idea of managing your own day selling Grundon’s services to commercial customers, then this could be the job for you. As an Apprentice Sales Executive, you’ll be provided with all the training you need in a supportive environment to equip you to become an excellent salesperson. All you need is a full UK driving licence, GCSE’s at Level 5 in Maths and English (or a willingness to gain), and a passion for learning and an enthusiasm for selling!

HGV Mechanic
If you're an experienced HGV Mechanic looking for a new opportunity, how about fleet work in a great team working in their clean and well-equipped workshop at Ewelme. Large goods vehicle experience is essential and ideally, you’re qualified or semi-skilled (City & Guilds HGV Parts 1,2 or 3 NVQ Level 3 qualification or equivalent). If you don’t have these qualifications then you must have 10 years’ experience working on HGV vehicles. Ideally, you’ll also hold a current LGV licence (Class 2 minimum) and digital tachograph card.

Site Chemists
Are you a hands-on graduate chemist interested in the fascinating and thriving environmental sector, or do you already have experience and are looking to step up? Either way, here’s your chance to join Grundon's industry-leading hazardous waste transfer facility in South Oxfordshire and gain further skills plus progression opportunities.

Joining a hard-working and highly skilled team, you’ll help with the day-to-day operation of the transfer station – receiving incoming consignments of waste, checking documentation, completing waste transfer notes, and raising non-conformances. Other duties will include unloading and loading lorries, operating forklift trucks (we’ll train you up) and inspecting, classifying, and segregating waste deliveries. You’ll also be expected to ensure the site is kept tidy.

Working alongside their Site Chemists, there are:

Waste Facility Labourers
Are you keen to get trained up on operating forklift trucks, plus machinery and other plant (or perhaps you already have experience)? Looking for an active job in an enthusiastic team? Happy to work outdoors in all weathers? If you're practical, reliable and really want to learn, then Grundon's Waste Facility Labourer role could suit you down to the ground.

Paint Sprayer & Shot Blaster
If you have industrial wet spraying experience, then Grundon could have a permanent role for you in their Fabrication Workshop in Ewelme. Operating shotblasting and paint equipment, you’ll spend your day preparing and paint spraying waste containers, mobile plant and vehicles.
