We are looking to recruit some HGV Class 1 Container Drivers in Birmingham (Aldridge). Shifts are mainly Monday-Friday pattern with Weekend & Night shifts also available in some depots.

Working for their container division you will develop close working relationships with your planning and training team, alongside other drivers and staff members in a close knit organisation that strives to create a welcoming and comfortable environment for all.
