Hertfordshire is one of the English home counties, and it is located just to the north of central London and to the west of Essex. The county's location makes it of huge strategic importance for the haulage industry, so driving jobs in the area are relatively plentiful.
Towns in Hertfordshire include Welwyn Garden City, Stevenage and Hatfield, and these towns are well-served by a massive network of motorways and A-class roads. A number of haulage companies and distribution centres are located in the area, as Hertfordshire provides quick and easy access into central London, the Midlands and the north of England. As well as HGV drivers, those with PCV licences often have a number of employment opportunities with local bus companies and courier firms.
There are a number of large production and retail firms based in the county, including JD Wetherspoon in Watford and Tesco in Cheshunt. Other firms in the area include BAE Systems and GlaxoSmithKline, and all of these companies either employ delivery drivers directly or employ the services of driving staff from major haulage companies. Hertfordshire is a relatively affluent area of England, so local recruitment agencies often have a wide range of quality driving jobs in the region.
An HGV driver can earn anything up to £50,000 with a leading multinational company. Local bus drivers can earn in the region of £20,000 to £35,000.
