  • Working for TPA means you will be actively building on the trust and quality of service that we have proudly built since 2001. In order to continue delivering best-in-class temporary access solutions and support services to the events, utilities, marine and construction sectors, we are committed to future proofing our ongoing success by attracting a talented and dynamic workforce.

    This is an excellent opportunity for you to join our talented and growing team at TPA.

    As a Class One Lead Driver Operative, you will work as part as a team on our wagon & drag vehicles throughout the UK. However, driving will form only part of your duties, as once at your destination, you will use the rear mounted lorry loader crane on the vehicle to install and recover our unique range of temporary access products. You will work on sites ranging from power transmission projects and major civil engineering works, to sporting events and music festivals.

    This unique role will require spending time away from home, sometimes for several nights per week, where sharing a sleeper cab is the norm. Weekend working will be expected if needed.

    The successful applicant will have good literacy and numeracy skills, a flexible can-do attitude, a keen eye for safe working, and be physically fit due to the demanding nature of the work on site.

    A digital tacho card and driver CPC is essential. Applications will not be considered without this. A CSCS card, CPCS Lorry Loader (hook or grab) would be advantageous but full training would be provided to successful applicants.

    TPA work on many sensitive sites in the transmission, rail and utilities sectors and operate a rigorous drugs and alcohol testing policy.

    TPA is a leading European supplier of temporary access hire solutions to a variety of markets including utilities, power & transmission, rail, infrastructure and specialist event sectors.
