HGV recruitment agency listing

A heavy goods vehicle(HGV) is the usual form of transport used in haulage and distribution in the UK. Driving these vehicles requires specialist training and a particular licence.

Most people fund their own training and assessment before qualifying as an HGV driver. Candidates must be over 18 and hold a driving licence with a category B provision to be considered for training. Only those candidates with a category C+E provision on their licence will be eligible for the majority of HGV vacancies, however. Most employers will carry out a criminal record check as part of the recruitment process, and some will only consider those applicants who have been driving professionally for a minimum of three years.

The role of an HGV driver is intrinsically lonely, so candidates should be prepared for this. The health and safety laws pertaining to driving need to be fully understood, and a driver's understanding of these rules may be checked during the interview process. Recruitment agencies have many employment opportunities for experienced drivers, but many of them are on a self-employed basis.

Junior driving staff can expect a starting salary of between £17,000 and £20,000, but experienced drivers handling the very largest vehicles can make up to £40,000 per year.
