This is an exciting time to work at Viridor. We are at the forefront of the UK’s green economy, investing £1.5 billion in delivering essential and modern infrastructure to transform ‘waste’ into the highest quality recyclables and renewable energy. 

With this strong growth, we are always looking for people who have a drive for innovation, and who are interested helping us achieve our purpose and help our customers. We want forward-thinking individuals to join our fast-paced and thriving workforce. 

We employ a versatile work force and offer a number of benefits to our employees, including:

  • Childcare vouchers – A pre-tax, monthly deduction scheme to save on childcare costs, for parents with children under the age of 16.
  • Payroll giving – Employees can choose to contribute to a favourite charity direct from their salary before tax.
  • Employee assistance programme - A free helpline for health, legal or personal issues available 24-hours, seven days a week.
  • Cycle scheme – Employees can lease bicycles and associated safety equipment, payable by a monthly, pre-tax deduction.
  • ShareSave – Employees are given the opportunity to enter into a fixed term savings scheme which allows them to purchase Pennon Group shares at a reduced price.
  • Simply Health – A voluntary health scheme, for employees and their families, which provides affordable healthcare, including check-ups, treatment and emergencies, payable by a monthly, pre-tax deduction.

As well as our employment benefits we offer fantastic training opportunities for our employees who wish to progress within the company. Last year we provided colleagues across the business with 5353 training days. We have also developed an industry leading management degree programme in partnership with Edge Hill University to give our future leaders the skills necessary to reach their potential.
