17 Parkside Lane,
Are you looking for an exciting new role in the drainage industry? Working as a drainage professional at Lanes Group can provide you with a varied career path and long-term prospects.
Lanes Group - the UK's largest privately owned drainage contractor - is on the lookout for ambitious individuals to join our team in Leeds. The depot on Parkside Industrial Estate is the base for a team of expert emergency drainage engineers providing drain and sewer services for domestic and commercial properties.
As well as being the cultural and financial hub for Yorkshire and the North East, Leeds is also the birthplace of Lanes, the company having been formed in the city in 1992. Today, it is home not only to our head office facility, but also an operational centre covering West Yorkshire and beyond.
We employ a team of 2,200 staff members across the UK and Ireland, and believe that our success is based on a pioneering spirit, a solid growth strategy and robust infrastructure that we are constantly reviewing to ensure our services are the best in the business.
Employees in our Leeds base are also eligible to take our City & Guilds-accredited training course, designed by Lanes as the UK’s only official drainage qualification. This course provides our staff with all the practical and technical skills they need, as well as customer service training to promote our culture of excellence.
There are many job opportunities currently available in our Leeds depot. You can review the current job listings below.
The Leeds depot responds to callouts across the region and we are looking to hire staff from a wide area, including:
We offer a wide range of driver/operator job vacancies in Leeds, and are on the lookout for qualified HGV operators to take the wheel of our distinctive and state-of-the-art Lanes vehicles.
These are much more than basic driver roles, with vehicle operators getting directly involved in carrying out essential engineering, repair and maintenance work using top-of-the-range tools and equipment, while also providing top-notch customer service to our domestic, commercial and utilities sector clients.
Prior drainage industry experience is a benefit, but by no means a requirement. As such, this is a great opportunity for professional drivers with backgrounds in other sectors to retrain in a new and exciting line of work.
Our engineering crew are the lifeblood of everything we do at Lanes Group. We are among the biggest employers of drainage engineers in the UK, and our headquarters in Leeds plays a central role in our work.
Our team of qualified engineers in Leeds are responsible for imaging, repairing and unblocking drains and sewers of all shapes and sizes, working with some of the most sophisticated technology available.
These highly skilled jobs will give you the opportunity to work alongside some of the most qualified engineers in the industry, while interacting directly with customers in need.
Our groundworkers and small civils workers oversee any renovation and excavation work that may be required as part of our drainage projects, focusing on efficiency and minimising disruption for the resident or property owner.
The scope of these jobs ranges from straightforward excavations of individual pipes to large-scale projects that involve moving hundreds of tonnes of material, which is why we are looking for candidates with an affinity for physical outdoor work to join our team in Leeds.
Our office-based workers play a pivotal role in organising the way Lanes Group works, with our head office staff in Leeds making a particularly key contribution.
We rely on the tireless work of our administrative staff to build a strong rapport with clients, while providing our field engineers and drivers with the necessary information to meet the needs of our customers in rapidly evolving emergency situations.
These roles are ideal for highly organised people with a talent for cooperative, collaborative working.
