Members of Jonathan Lee Recruitment Power Generation team recently joined forces with Wilton 11 Jobs Fair and Energy from Waste (EfW) plant to support local employment opportunities.

At present, the EfW plant employs 398 people, with 210 from the local surrounding area. With expansion plans in progress, the plant is looking to recruit around 100 talented individuals to build the second phase of the SITA Sembcorp facility at Wilton and permanent staff required to operate the site. The project, that is expected to open in 2016, will power 63,000 homes by converting household waste into electricity.
