Blue Ridge Biofuels is hiring for four new positions at its new Catawba County Biodiesel Production Facility. The positions include two Plant Operators, one Truck Driver, and one Client Service Representative. Blue Ridge Biofuels is in the process of constructing and commissioning its new biodiesel production facility in Newton, NC and these positions will be the first hires of the new operations. BRB is looking for committed, long term employees who are interested and motivated by the idea of producing clean fuels from local resources which are better for the environment and local economy.
Plant Operators (2): Plant Operators will initially be assisting in the construction of the biodiesel production facility, which will entail operating a pipe-threader, power tools, forklift, etc. to build out the manufacturing equipment. Upon completion of the production equipment, plant operators will be responsible for the production of quality biodiesel from recycled cooking oils. Experience with biodiesel is a plus but not a requirement. Employees will gain detailed, hands-on knowledge of constructing and operating a biodiesel facility. BRB is searching for long term dedicated individuals for these positions. Requirements include being capable of lifting 50 lbs., having experience with power tools, manufacturing and construction techniques, and forklift operation, along with reliable transportation. All prospective plant operators must undergo a criminal background check.
Truck Driver: BRB is currently hiring one Truck Driver to operate a vacuum truck for the purpose of collecting recycled cooking oil from area restaurants and other recycled cooking oil suppliers in the Charlotte and Hickory areas. Requirements include a valid NC Commercials Driver’s License (CDL) class B with tanker and air breaks endorsements, a clean driving record, and reliable transportation. HAZMAT endorsement is not a requirement but is a major plus. All prospective truck drivers must undergo a criminal background check and pass a pre-employment drug test. Truck driver employees are subject to random DOT-mandated drug testing.
Client Service Representative: Client Service Representatives are independent contractors who are responsible for growing and maintaining Blue Ridge Biofuels’ used cooking oil collection client base. Used cooking oil is primarily collected from restaurants but BRB also collects from schools, hospitals, and other organizations that fry food. The job entails meeting with new potential clients in the Newton, Hickory, Lenoir, and Charlotte areas to sign them up under BRB’s collection contracts. Excellent customer service and an outgoing personality is a must. Prior sales experience in sales and customer/client service is a plus but not required. Requirements include reliable transportation, valid driver’s license, and proficiency in operating current wireless tablet technology.
