HGV drivers are in high demand all around the world, therefore a career in driving is secure both in terms of job opportunities and financial security. A job as a driver allows you the flexibility to work shifts that suit your lifestyle and home life, earn money on your terms and of course enables you to progress within the logistics or supply chain industry, to begin with. HGV driver positions are abundant and can assist someone in breaking into a good organisation. HGV driver jobs are worth looking for because they come with a slew of advantages, which our dedicated recruitment team can assist you with.
THERE IS PLENTY OF EMPLOYMENT AVAILABLE
Any employment should be evaluated to see if it will provide you with enough work to make a livelihood. Rest assured, after you have your HGV licence, you will have access to a wide range of driving opportunities. Furthermore, we are searching for a career that is future proof, as the demand for HGV drivers is not going away anytime soon! The digital era may have aided in some ways, since more people are purchasing online, resulting in more delivery (especially with Christmas around the corner.) Even if you’re new and inexperienced in the driving industry, you do learn a lot on the job – not to mention We have a 24-hour on-call translation service if required.
WILL THE FURLOUGH BE EXTENDED?
Furlough has already been extended four times, generating great consternation. One of the reasons it was extended until September 30 – well past the projected conclusion of the shutdown – was to provide companies with assurance and avoid the necessity for yet another extension. Boris Johnson and Chancellor Rishi Sunak have recently stated that they do not wish to prolong vacation any further. However, if the data changes and a major new wave of illnesses lead to more limitations, the government will face significant pressure to rethink.
Everyone has a unique lifestyle and set of obligations that they must balance. As a result, the traditional 9-5 schedule does not fit everyone. The upside of being an HGV driver is that you may select your hours to suit your other commitments—we’re talking about a really flexible job here.
As previously said, this is not an industry that will go away anytime soon. A skilled driver who is certified and has a current professional HGV licence is constantly in demand. In our ever-changing world, there are certain areas where that cannot be claimed with as much security, therefore it’s good and wise to be associated with a profession that provides job stability. When it comes to service demands, this is also not a sector that varies nearly as much as other industries—HGV driving is always in demand.
POSSIBILITY OF A LARGE SALARY
There is good money to be made as an HGV driver! A full-time, fully trained HGV driver may make upwards of £45,000 per year. Furthermore, if you work for a contractor, you have the flexibility to work different contracts and earn a more competitive salary. #keepbritainrunning
