We are looking for a Waterway Operative to join our team along the Middle district of the Caledonian Canal, based out of our location in Fort Augustus. Our seasonal contract runs until November 2018.

As well as this, you will take responsibility for the surrounding area including grass cutting, litter picking and some minor DIY and maintenance such as painting and weeding.
Skills and experience required:
- Basic DIY skills are advantageous
- Customer service experience and strong communication skills
- Health and safety awareness
- Team working experience
- A full driving licence is essential, and access to your own transport
