The ceremonial county of Cheshire includes four separate administrative areas. It is located to the south of the north west conurbation of England, and its proximity to Liverpool and Manchester makes it popular with commuters looking to live outside the city.
Cheshire has a diverse economy, and although it has been hit hard by the recent economic turmoil, employment opportunities in driving are relatively plentiful. The county is a major supplier of salt and silk, and logistics teams are required to move these goods around the UK and to various ports for export. Jaguar, Vauxhall Motors and BAE Systems all have production facilities in Cheshire, and drivers can find opportunities within the supply chain for the county's vibrant automotive industry.
Cheshire includes the large urban areas around Chester, Warrington and Widnes, and public transport systems serve many of these areas. Local bus companies often require trainee drivers or those already in possession of their PCV licence. The region's construction industry is also on the road back to health, and that will mean plant drivers and goods vehicle operators will be required in increasing numbers by local recruitment agencies over the next decade.
While bus drivers and staff couriers should be able to command a salary of between £18,000 and £30,000, it is not unusual for some HGV drivers to pick up a salary of £45,000 in a full-time role.
