EARN UP TO £17p/h - HGV Class 1 drivers required in Rochdale - Flexible shifts to suit – Apply Today!

We have a fantastic opportunity for HGV 1 drivers to come and work for us in Rochdale. This is on a long-term contract with the view of a perm position after the qualifying period. All you need is an HGV 1 licence! 
This new program will ease you in with the customer and you will complete a comprehensive 3 to 4 week training program. This will entail a driving assessment with coaching, full site introduction/induction and double manned shifts with one of our experienced drivers.
After this point, you will be put on specific routes for the first 3 months. These routes we class as ‘green,’ are the least challenging and this will help to you gain that experience you’re looking for whilst using all the skills you’ve been trained on. For the next 6 months you will complete the ‘amber’ and ‘red’ routes until you’re fully confident and are able to do any route required ranging from standard trailers to longer semi double deck trailers with rear steer axels. During this period, you will have a driver mentor that you can contact should you have any questions.
The timescales for this may change, it’s completely dependent on you as every driver is different.
