PLEASE NOTE: This post is ONLY available to RENFREWSHIRE residents. This is due to the additional funding the Council is providing to partially fund this post. Renfrewshire Council is offering the opportunity for 2 Estate Operative Trainees (Kickstart Programme) to join our Clyde Muirshiel and Castle Semple team for a period of six months to support environmental improvements across the estate.


Trainees will support ongoing removal of litter, fly tipping, shrub/grounds work, detritus removal, cleaning, facilities servicing and estate maintenance activities across Castle Semple and Clyde Muirshiel. Trainees may also be provided with the opportunity to link with our Ranger service to learn and develop countryside related skills which may open opportunities and upskill the trainee. Applicants for this role will receive training in the use of a range of appropriate machinery and tools and will also be supplied with appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). PLEASE NOTE – This role is open to those aged 18+, due to the legal requirements over the use of machinery. The role involves predominantly outdoor work. Therefore, trainees should be fully prepared to work in all weather conditions.
