Like any construction project, the number of jobs on site will fluctuate over time but we anticipate that the peak workforce during the construction phase will be around 450. Vacancies will range widely across different trades, with different skills being required at different times, but efforts will be made to recruit locally. Employment opportunities will be advertised through job fairs, local advertisements and recruitment companies.

If you are interested in a role during the construction of the Protos ERF, please submit your CV via the form below.

Submitted CVs are passed to Mytilineos and Standardkessel Baumgarte, who will be in touch if they need further information. Your details may be forwarded to a third party for the purposes of registering your interest. We keep CVs on file for six months, after which point you will need to resubmit if you still want to be considered. If you wish to withdraw your CV within the six-month period, please email and we will remove it from our system.

Once construction is complete there will be around 50 new permanent operational roles at the facility. These roles will be promoted and recruited by Encyclis (the new name for Covanta in the UK & Europe), as the operator of the new facility and further details will be released at a later date. It is anticipated that recruitment for these roles will commence in late 2022.
