Barker Ross debuts MRF team
As materials recovery facilities (MRFs) become increasingly important in providing raw materials to industry, recruitment specialist Barker Ross has formed a support team to supply the growing range of operatives needed to provide a quality product.
The Barker Ross team will also be offering a MRF specific health and safety (H&S) etraining programme to prepare candidates for an industry where workers face many hazards.
With over 20 years' experience in the waste and recycling industry, Baker Ross knows how well prepared people have to be before going onsite at an MRF. So the MRF H&S etraining programme readies candidates for various roles. This means that clients can be confident safe systems of work are being adhered to.
Simon Gimson, who heads up the MRF team, says, "More and more MRFs are being built to cope with the need to reuse materials, but finding the right people with the right training to work, in what can be a complex environment, can be hard.
"Clients are also telling me that the quality of sorted recycled waste is key to their success, and to get that they need a well-trained workforce and this is what we deliver.
"We've been working in the waste and recycling industry for over 20 years. We know exactly what kind of people are needed and as demand has grown the next step for us was to create a dedicated training package and a team to support our MRF clients."
Clients can also take advantage of Barker Ross's biometric time and attendance systems which streamline the management of temporary staff.
Candidates are comprehensively screened and a silent supervisor scheme is in place to facilitate new starters. Also offered is video capture on-site, so Barker Ross can show candidates what sites actually look like, where to report and what processes they will have to undertake.
The Barker Ross MRF team will recruit for both temporary and permanent roles, including picking operatives, multi skilled plant operatives, baler operatives, engineers, weighbridge clerks, administrators, supervisors and managers.
