Driver Hire Newcastle are currently working with a nationally recognised client based in Hebburn to recruit LGV 1 Drivers for dray work. This is an excellent opportunity to join a forever expanding organisation with excellent opportunities for permanent employment.
The work involves working on drays, delivering a variety of alcoholic drinks to pubs, bars and restaurants in the North East area. You will be required to follow a specific run sheet, and work with your mate to ensure that produce is delivered safely and efficiently. Maintaining regular contact with the transport office is essential, ensuring that damages, over orders and shortfalls are reported in a timely fashion.
The ideal LGV 1 Dray Driver will:
- Have Category C+E entitlement on their full UK driving licence
- Have a valid Digital Tachograph and Full Drivers CPC
- Ideally have dray experience, however this is not essential
- Have asound knowledge of drivers hours regulations and tachograph rules
You will be assisted by a drivers mate on each shift, however, you will be expected to get stuck in as the post requires a lot of manual handling.
The position is ongoing, Monday to Friday, working 45 hours per week. Usually, shifts will start at 06:00AM and last for around 10 hours but a degree of flexibility will be expected from you. For candidates who excel, there will be a permanent position on offer.
All drivers will be subject to Drug & Alcohol testing prior to induction, and throughout their assignment and subsequent employment. Following this, you will be given around 2 weeks training inclusive of driving assessment.
