About Axil

We deliver total waste management services across the UK, handling commercial waste across a range of manufacturing sectors including aerospace, automotive, food, and pharmaceuticals.

For most roles, a full UK driving license is required as most jobs are stationed outside of our Corby and Cannock offices.

You don’t need to have expert knowledge of waste regulations, compliance or health and safety legislation to get a job at Axil. However, you’ll need to be familiar with this information once you have the role, so we’ll provide all the necessary training as part of your induction.

Axil operates a ‘safety first’ approach. Our workers’ health and safety is paramount to us meaning we will ask you to wear personal protective equipment (PPE) in some instances, and take responsibility to point out and resolve any workplace hazards where possible.
