Who we employ at the Bristol depot

HGV driver/operators

We offer a wide range of driver/operator job vacancies at Lanes, giving qualified HGV operators a much broader opportunity to develop their skills in new ways than a typical driving job in Bristol.

Drivers of our distinctive, state-of-the-art Lanes vehicles will get involved directly in our essential engineering, repair and maintenance work, making use of our top-of-the-range tools and jet vacuumation equipment. Staff in our driving jobs in Bristol will also be expected to provide responsive customer service to a wide range of clients, making this so much more than a conventional driving role.

Prior drainage industry experience is a plus, but not essential, as all members of staff will receive the training they need to succeed in the role. That could make this an opportunity for drivers from other professional backgrounds to retrain in a new line of work.

Roles include:


As the biggest privately owned specialist drainage contractor in the country, Lanes Group are among the UK’s leading employers of drainage engineers. Our team of engineers and machine operators in Bristol plays a key role in our work in helping us meet demand for our services, and are responsible for imaging, repairing and unblocking drains and sewers of all shapes and sizes.

These highly skilled engineering jobs in Bristol will give you the opportunity to work alongside some of the drainage industry’s most experienced engineers, working with sophisticated CCTV imaging and high-powered jetting technology. You will also be relied upon to interact directly with customers and clients as representatives of Lanes.

Roles include:


Our groundworkers and small civils workers are in charge of renovation and excavation work associated with our drainage projects. Groundworker jobs in Bristol involve carrying out everything from straightforward excavations of individual pipes to large-scale processing of material weighing hundreds of tonnes.

Candidates for our groundworker jobs in Bristol will need to have a strong affinity for physical outdoor work, and to be able to work efficiently, as keeping disruption for the property owner to a bare minimum is essential.

Roles include:


Our office-based workers and administrative staff in Bristol work tirelessly to provide our field engineers and drivers with the information they need to resolve emergency situations, and to build a strong rapport with clients and keep them in the loop at all times.

Our Bristol depot is currently looking to expand our office-based workforce with highly organised recruits who have an aptitude for cooperative, collaborative teamwork. By joining our team, you’ll be playing an indispensable role in helping Lanes maintain the high standards for which we are known.
