What You’ll Do:

Our HGV Class 1 drivers usually drive our longer routes in waves, ensuring the safe, efficient driving of vehicles from depots to other sites in. For some routes, this could be delivering or collecting loads from our Hub or other Depots in our network, for others, you may be delivering to one or more of our Delivery Units (this is where our Couriers pick up their parcels for delivery to the household).

All our Drivers will keep paperwork updated on their route and as a team player, will assist depot staff with heavier items from time to time. We know the great British roads and weather don’t always play nicely, so you’ll need to keep us updated with any problems. We can then help find an alternative route.

Our HGV Class 1 drivers work on shifts. Full-time contracts are 40 hours per week with some weekend working on a rota basis. Flexible and part-time hours are also available so talk to us and let’s see how we can create the opportunity that works best for you.


Essential Skills & Experience Required:

  • You’ll need a full UK driving licence with HGV Class 1 (Cat C E) entitlements, driver's CPC and digital tachograph. Newly-qualified drivers are welcome, however all drivers will need to undertake a short driving assessment.
  • Excellent communication skills
  • A safety-first mindset
  • Reasonable physical fitness
