At Lanes Group, we’re always looking to expand our team of CCTV drainage engineers, reflecting the essential role they play within our operations. This means we’re able to offer a number of opportunities to capable candidates with the right qualities to succeed in this role.
As the UK’s largest privately owned specialist drainage contractor, we rely on our highly trained CCTV engineers to operate the camera technology we use to inspect drain and sewer interiors without having to resort to manual excavation and inspection. We’re highly appreciative of the skills our engineers bring to this vital work, so we go the extra mile to make our staff feel valued, with industry-leading benefits, working conditions and long-term prospects.
If you’re interested in applying to become a Lanes Group CCTV engineer, read on to find out more about what we’re looking for in an applicant, as well as the answers to key questions you might have about our application and interview process.
As a Lanes Group CCTV drainage engineer, you and your team will analyse pipe conditions with advanced surveying equipment, capturing images and assessing them with verification software to identify the source of drainage problems and devise a solution.
The technical nature of this work means that candidates will be expected to bring a certain level of understanding of the techniques and processes involved. When looking over CVs from applicants for these roles, our recruiters will be looking for:
Wincan software experience may also be needed for some placements, while New Roads and Street Works Act (NRSWA) training qualifications and certification for working in confined spaces are also considered desirable, but are not necessarily essential. If you’re applying to become a CCTV assistant rather than a full-fledged engineer, then it’s possible to apply even with no prior experience - however, having the right certification and experience with CCTV cameras and pushrods will still give you the edge.
In addition to this technical knowledge, candidates should also look to demonstrate their professionalism and attention to detail through their applications. Dedication to high standards of customer service and health and safety are vital when working at external sites, and we’ll be looking for evidence that this is an area where you can excel.

Once we have reviewed your application, we may invite you over to attend a face-to-face interview at the relevant hiring depot, which will give us the opportunity to have a proper conversation about the role.
During this interview, we’ll be looking to get to know you better on a personal and professional level, while also giving you the opportunity to find out more about the job and about Lanes Group as an employer. Don’t be afraid to ask questions - establishing whether or not you’ll be a good fit for Lanes’ working culture is the main purpose of the interview, so we’ll do everything we can to provide the information you need to make that decision.
