Did you know we’re scrapping the CV? We believe skills can be developed, and potential can be nurtured. We’re not so interested in what you’ve done – we care most about who you are and what you can do.

This role is based at our site in Hebburn in the North East. 

Please note, we are unable to sponsor a visa for this role so you must have permanent right to work in the UK, and not require visa sponsorship at any point in the future, in order to be considered.
