Sustain Recruitment has an exciting opportunity for a skilled and experienced Landfill Gas Engineer to join our client's inclusive and welcoming team. This full-time hybrid role is based in Bristol and offers a favourable salary and benefits package.


As a Landfill Gas Engineer, you will monitor and control landfill gas produced within waste mass. The gas is used as fuel and converted into electricity utilising CAT, Jenbacher and Scania engine driven alternators. If the generators are offline, gas control is maintained using an enclosed ground flare.


If you were already working for us in this flexible role, here are some of the things you would have done last week:

  • Maintained the equipment needed to capture landfill gas
  • Monitored local and remote sites to ensure each remains compliant with relevant legislation and environmental permits
  • Completed ad-hoc and routine tasks, including general planned maintenance, fault diagnosis, and breakdown response
  • Ensured cost-effectiveness and avoided unnecessary expenditure.


To apply for this Landfill Gas Engineer role, your soft skills, expertise and experience should include:

  • Experience (at least 2 years) working as a mechanic or experience working with engines (CAT/Jenbacher or Scania experience an advantage) in a gasfield maintenance setting
  • The ability to problem-solve
  • A good understanding of relevant health and safety laws/legislation
  • IT skills
  • A full UK driving licence.


As a vital member of the team and in return for your expertise, inclusive approach and commitment, you’ll receive a favourable salary and benefits package.
