    What will I be doing?

    We currently have two vacancies in our Worcester branch for a qualified HGV Driver.

    Vacancy 1: You’ll be working to deliver building materials from our branch to our local customers in a safe and professional manner. Loading the vehicle in the yard using the HIAB, it’ll be your responsibility to ensure the vehicle is properly loaded, safe and in-line with road and transport legislation. It’s likely that you’ll perform around 14 drops a day, regularly returning back to branch to reload your vehicle.

    Vacancy 2: Our Worcester branch runs a large tool hire operation, providing our local tradespeople with all the tools and equipment they need to complete jobs for their customers. From diggers to dumpers, drills to ladders, we cover the lot. In order to drop off and collect this equipment, we run a beaver tail vehicle and we're looking for a competent driver to join our team who is happy to load and unload plant equipment. Plant experience is not essential and full training will be provided.

    Am I right for the job?

    You will have a Class 2 driving license, up to date CPC records and 12 months+ driving experience. No HIAB? No problem! The branch will fully fund your HIAB training, ensuring you’re qualified and comfortable operating vehicle-mounted cranes. You’ll be confident in dealing with our customers, building new relationships and developing existing ones. You will be safety focussed, ensuring work is completed in a safe and professional manner. Our drivers are passionate about what we do and delivering for our customers, we want like-minded drivers to join our team with the same mindset and ambition.
