If so, Driver Hire Chelmsford and Harlow want to hear from you! 


We are currently recruiting for our client based in Harlow, for an ongoing Forklift Counterbalance driver / Yardperson.

Daily duties will involve moving goods around the yard using the Forklift, keeping the yard/workspace generally clean and tidy and assisting other members of staff to carry out duties such as loading vehicles.

Due to the nature of the role and the goods that will need to be handled, the ideal candidate will be physically fit for the manual handling tasks and must have an in date Forklift Counterbalance licence to be considered for the role.

Although this assignment is on an ongoing temporary basis, this is a great opportunity to get your ‘foot in the door’ with a reputable company to be considered for a permanent role in the future.


Working Hours:

Monday – Friday 0700 – 1700
