BEAR Scotland is set to increase its workforce in communities across South East Scotland, recruiting up to 50 new highway maintenance operatives.
Roadworkers of all experience are required for local job opportunities throughout South East Scotland. BEAR has depots in the region at Rosyth, Queensferry, Bonnyrigg, Burghmuir near Linlithgow, St Boswells, Eyemouth and Chryston near Moodiesburn.
Last year BEAR Scotland began an eight-year contract to manage and maintain the trunk road network in South East Scotland on behalf of Transport Scotland, covering 506km of trunk roads from central Scotland to the Scottish Borders, as well as 757 bridges and structures including the iconic Queensferry Crossing and Forth Road Bridge.
Alasdair Allen, BEAR Scotland’s Senior Operations Manager for the South East Unit, said:“With pandemic travel restrictions now easing, trunk roads are ever more important lifelines and we’re building up our team in South East Scotland.
“Our contract with Transport Scotland is guaranteed to run for at least eight years, so a job with BEAR means long-term job security. There’s great satisfaction to be had providing an essential public service as part of our strong, resilient team – this is your chance to help ‘keep Scotland moving’.
“Roadworker jobs provide good opportunities for overtime, a varied workload and the opportunity work in some of Scotland’s most beautiful landscape.
“Whatever your background and level of experience, we’re keen to hear from you. We provide on the job training for most roles, including apprenticeship options. If you’re interested in taking your career to the next level with one of the leading companies in the industry, please get in touch.”
