​Join a company who promotes their employees as their greatest asset

Whale Tankers Ltd has partnered with Jonathan Lee Recruitment to identify and appoint talented individuals to join their ever expanding business.

About Whale Tankers

Established over 50 years ago, in 1969, Whale Tankers are now one of the largest manufacturers of liquid waste vacuum tankers and jetting equipment in Europe, supplying products to the UK and worldwide.

Their aim is to continually improve the quality and value of their products, through design innovation to maximise durability, reliability, ease of maintenance, fitness for purpose and residual value.

Today, Whale has a truly modern manufacturing facility at Ravenshaw, with all the key processes carried out in-house, rather than sub-contracted out. Every stage of the manufacturing process – from technical specification, preparation of chassis, tank build, mounting of tanks, fitting of components, painting, finishing and quality control – all take place on site.

The ‘in-house’ product philosophy gives Whale the ability to control quality at every stage and to ensure that every product is engineered and built to deliver uptime and value throughout its working lifetime.
