Operative

CEMEX is all about the career journey - no dead-end job here.

The role of Operative is just the start, because at CEMEX they believe in promoting from within.

Do you love operating a fork-lift truck and working with concrete? Do you relish packing, stacking and loading lorries? If so, the role of Operative is for you! 

About the client:

CEMEX is an international business, with three sites within beautiful, rural Buxton.

They provide so many benefits besides the pay check.

They develop you with training and with progression opportunities - because they like to nurture the talent they already have - and their good staff retention shows that.

They also have good benefits and opportunities for bonuses and overtime. 

About the Role

As Operative you'll play a key part in keeping things ticking over smoothly at the factory.

In this varied role at their slab manufacturing facility in Buxton, you'll be operating fork-lift trucks and packing, stacking and loading lorries and tidying up after a hard day's graft.

Of course, in any manual role, they have strict health and safety regulations in place for you and your colleagues’ protection. 

At CEMEX, they love proactive self-starters and those who use their initiative, and that'll help you progress within the business.

They're an international business with three sites within Buxton, so there’s potential for further opportunities.

About You:

If you work with a smile on your face, whilst understanding the need for good-practice health and safety, you'll fit right into their team of five - consisting of operators (you), maintenance fitters, foremen and supervisors - all who muck in together at the factory to help get the job done.

  • 2+ years in a similar role or quarry or factory environment
  • Experience of operating FLTs and/ or shovels - licences is desirable
