About the role

We’ve an exciting opportunity to join us a Technical Advisor to support us in completing reactive and proactive investigations where the root cause is down to fats, oils and grease (FOG).

The role involves onsite technical investigations, accurate evidence gathering, report writing, including the team scorecard and supporting the ongoing development of the FOG process.
