Excavation Operatives & Assistants Jobs

At Lanes Group, our excavation teams play a vital role in the success of our drainage repair works, navigating the difficulties of the drain excavation process and ensuring the necessary repairs can be carried out with a minimum of disruption to the resident or property owner.

Due to the potential inconvenience it can cause, excavating a drain is not a process that we take lightly. This complex task requires careful safety monitoring and great care to ensure that no damage is caused to any other crucial aspects of the property’s infrastructure. Therefore, we ensure that all of our lead engineers possess the experience and expertise necessary to complete these jobs without a hitch.

The highly skilled nature of this kind of work means that capable excavation operatives are always in strong demand here at Lanes Group. Due to increasing volumes of work, we’re currently looking to bring on board additional operatives and assistants, and are prepared to offer a wide range of industry-leading perks to those that apply. Flexible working, top-notch labour conditions and regular training are just some of the standout benefits that our employees enjoy over the course of their lengthy, fulfilling careers with us in excavation jobs.
