The Company

ATA are working exclusively with a high-end metal recycling company currently turning over more than £1 billion per year globally. With a strong footing in the UK market, they have found themselves undergoing huge growth within the multiple sites across the UK. As a company that is built on self-development and improvement, this business currently reinvests over 90% of their profits back into the site and the engineers, offering both internal and external training within the role. With the prevalence of recycling being ever more important around the world the business has no sign of slowing its growth in the foreseeable future.

  • Working a day’s role of 45 hours a week Mon – Fri (flexible on hours as long as contracted 45 hours a week are met).
  • Predominantly working out of Edmonton but a fully exposed company van is provided for travel between the 2 other local sites.

  • Recognised mechanical or electrical qualification.
  • Confidence in fault finding on electrical and mechanical components.
