CCTV Jobs in Drainage at Lanes Group

CCTV drain surveying has emerged as one of the most useful tools in the Lanes Group arsenal in recent years, so we’re constantly offering new CCTV drainage engineer jobs. By adding to our team, we can ensure our customers are always able to take full advantage of this service whenever they need to.

Historically, visibility has always been one of the greatest challenges in the drain repair process, as it was once difficult or sometimes impossible to inspect pipework without completely unearthing it. CCTV drain inspection camera technology has solved this problem, providing a rapid and minimally disruptive method of inspecting drain and sewer interiors without manual excavation.CCTV drainage engineers are in high demand due to the value they can provide for domestic and commercial clients alike.

At Lanes Group, we’re currently looking to create new CCTV drainage jobs for hardworking and enthusiastic engineers within our growing team, and are willing to provide capable candidates with flexible working opportunities to suit a range of needs and circumstances. By joining us, you’ll become part of the UK’s biggest privately owned drainage contractor, and in doing so gain access to industry-leading benefits, training, working conditions and long-term career prospects.

CCTV drainage job responsibilities

By successfully applying for one of our Lanes Group CCTV drainage jobs, you’ll work as part of a team to carry out CCTV surveys of drainage systems, analysing pipe conditions with state-of-the-art surveying equipment to produce high-quality reports in both pre-planned and reactive settings.

Our teams make use of the Panoramo 3D Optoscanner - exclusive to Lanes in the UK - to capture panoramic images of drain and sewer surfaces. These are then reviewed and analysed using 3D verification software to identify the source of the drainage issue, whether this be a crack, a blockage or a vermin problem. From there, the issue can be classified, allowing a workable solution to be delivered for the client in as timely a manner as possible.

Due to the technical nature of this work, jobs will require candidates with a certified understanding of the techniques and processes involved, and a strong commitment to high standards when it comes to customer service and health and safety when working at external sites.

Variable hours are also a requirement due to Lanes Group’s year-round, 24/7 operating model. Staff in CCTV drainage jobs should be prepared for the prospect of early starts, late finishes and an out-of-hours callout rota, all of which will help to ensure that our customers are never left in the lurch. Additionally, candidates should be enthusiastic about working outdoors, as this will be a key requirement of this role.

Salary and working conditions

Whatever your level of experience, you’ll be able to secure a competitive salary working through our CCTV drainage jobs, with ample opportunity to earn more as your expertise and seniority increases. Shift patterns are flexible enough to accommodate different working styles, and overtime is on offer for those who ask for it.

Additionally, all of our CCTV drainage jobs provide access to the full range of staff benefits that mark Lanes Group out as a market-leading employer. Workers will receive regular training to help them develop their skills and advance their knowledge in different areas. We also offer 20 days of paid holiday per year to full-time staff, an optional company-wide health scheme, a workplace pension and childcare vouchers, plus full corporate uniforms, hot drinks like tea and coffee and free car parking at most of our depots and offices.

We are dedicated to ensuring that our employees receive all the support they need to feel confident and secure in their work over the course of an extended career, and our benefits package is designed to reflect this.

What’s more, we also strive to be a forces-friendly employer, meaning that reservists and veterans with transferable skills developed during their military careers will receive the support they need to thrive in this active role.

Skills, qualifications and experience

CCTV drainage engineering is a technical and precise discipline that requires proficiency with the latest systems and software, so some degree of prior knowledge and expertise would be expected of the ideal candidate for our CCTV drainage jobs.

Applicants should be able to demonstrate prior experience in the drainage industry and should hold an OS19X certificate, a high-pressure water jetting certificate, an up-to-date Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) card, and a full UK driving licence with no more than three penalty points. Wincan software experience may also be needed for some placements; a New Roads and Street Works Act (NRSWA) training qualification and certification for working in confined spaces are also desirable, but not essential.

For those applying to become a CCTV engineering assistant, a lack of prior experience should not put you off, as you will learn the ropes as part of a two-person team with on-the-job support. Nevertheless, experience with CCTV cameras and pushrods is desirable, as is having an up to date CSCS card and high-pressure water jetting certificate.

Gender is no barrier to a long and successful CCTV drainage career at Lanes, and we employ a large number of women in the field of engineering. Discover
