£23,694 basic - OTE £33,000-£36,000+, Company Van, Fuel Card (no travel costs), bonus (OTE and performance based), mobile phone

Stratford - East London

Love Science but hate the idea of working in a lab? Did you love what you studied but don’t necessarily want a career in it? Would you prefer a hands on role where you are more target driven and rewarded on your personal performance? Then look no further - we are looking for high achieving graduates with a Science (BSc) degree.

In this energetic operational role, you’ll be utilising the knowledge that you have studied for and you’ll be responsible for delivering an expert Pest Control service to our commercial and domestic customers, both new and existing. What’s more you will be out in the field and not stuck behind a desk.

The harder you work the bigger the pay cheque and the quicker you will progress. You can expect to earn between £33,000 - £36,000 in your first year and potentially more if you start to climb the ladder and progress into any of our management, sales or technical roles. Your potential earnings are uncapped so the sky really is the limit with many of our Graduates progressing to a Management or Sales role within 12-18 months.

We constantly train you, whether it’s your Level 1 and 2 industry recognised Pest Control Technical Training, attending our 6 week Sales Academy or attending any of our Aspiring courses, we will give you the tools to tailor your own career which can involve any of the following (this list is not exhaustive):

Pest Control Technician: where you will learn how to deliver expert Pest Control in a mixture of commercial and domestic properties.

Sales Surveyor: A field sales position where you will survey customers properties and sell pest control services, products and solutions.

Field Biologist: a technical and specialist hands on role specialising within pest control where you will carry out site inspections, analyse and identify the root cause of pest infestations

Service Team Leader: leading a team of technicians whilst also providing excellent customer service

Further career opportunities lie in our Key Accounts Management, Technical Field Consultant. Local Operations Management, Technical Account Management and Specialist Field Consultant roles - as you can see the opportunities are endless!

Don’t just take our word for it, here is what one of our recent Graduates had to say:

“At least from my experience the Grad program offers ample opportunity to Network, and because of this despite having a huge number of employees you soon get to know who you need to talk to get whatever you need done and everyone seems willing to pick up the phone and help even senior managers are extremely approachable. Senior positions are always promoted too from within and the Grad program encourages a fast progression dependent entirely on aptitude and performance. The Job is very autonomous if you are comfortable organizing yourself well and and prepared to take ownership of your job role you will find you can largely make it your own and will find it rewarding.

In Summary if you are prepared to Work hard Rentokil is a brilliant career where progression is encouraged people are supportive approachable and just a phone call away and are happy to help you whatever your problem. If you are good at what you do you will largely be left to do your job however you find best to do it but don't expect it to be easy!”

If you’re looking for a role with incredible earning potential, a great environment with like minded people and a 1st class training and development programme then apply now.
