    Description

    Due to continued expansion PPMS are looking to recruit Trainee Pest Control Technicians to join our busy team. We are a nationwide Company servicing a wide variety of commercial, industrial and domestic clients.

    Experience is certainly not essential. PPMS have developed an in-house training programme where you will be tutored on all technical and practical aspects of the role of Technician.

    Following the development of your practical experience you will then be able to gain industry recognised qualifications. At the end of your training period PPMS will then further invest in your professional development to ensure you are able to personally develop your skills.

    Applicants must have excellent written and verbal communication skills, an understanding of first-rate customer service and ideally be able to demonstrate previous experience in working, unsupervised, in a field-based role.

    With a base in Lincoln we provide nationwide coverage so we ask applicants to hold a full driving licence and be flexible. Although primary hours of work are Monday to Friday, these will include some early mornings and regular overnight stays.

    Candidates will also be expected to undertake weekend cover on a rota basis.

    PPMS will provide you with a fully expensed company vehicle, uniform, PPE, all electronic equipment necessary to the role and an expense account for your overnight stays.

    The role is, at minimum, 40 hours a week and overtime is paid outside of these hours.

    Your starting salary will reflect your relevant work or academic experience with incremental rises when training milestones are reached.

    You will also have the opportunity to earn bonuses and commission on lead generation and sales.

    Flexibility in the role is key. Our fundamental aim is providing pro-active pest management solutions however, we have to ensure we are reactive in situations where our Clients require our support.

    In short we cannot guarantee you a 9 – 5 job.  If you have the willingness and commitment to thrive in a rewarding industry then you are the right candidate for us.

    You will be fully supported in your role however, following your training period, you will mostly be working alone.

    Other duties will include occasional job works, which may require you working at height and other functions required to ensure our Clients’ needs are fully supported.

    Successful candidates will undergo an enhanced DBS check.

    Please apply with your CV and covering letter.

    Closing Date for applications is Friday 6th September.
