HGV Driver 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 to apply 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 job of HGV Driver is an intrinsically solitary role, so candidates should be prepared to experience a degree of isolation in the course of their day-to-day work. The health and safety laws pertaining to driving need to be fully understood, and a driver's understanding of these rules is likely to be checked during the interview process. Recruitment agencies generallly provide a range of employment opportunities for experienced drivers, with many which 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.
