Class 1 Agricultural Haulage Driver

Job Summary

We are looking to recruit a permanent HGV Class 1 (LGV C+E) Driver to work in our agricultural haulage operation based out of Bunwell, Norfolk. We are looking to recruit new members to the team for harvest and beyond.

Candidate Requirements

  • HGV1 licence with Driver CPC.
  • Interested in agricultural haulage.
  • Prepared to work occasional weekends and bank holidays by prior arrangement (not Christmas Day, Boxing Day, NYD).
  • Prepared to work nights out.
  • Available over harvest (July-September).
  • Previous agricultural haulage experience desirable but not essential.

Candidate Duties
A typical day will start between 5.00am and 6.00am and take you to a storage site on a farm in the East of England where you will be loaded. You will secure your load and deliver it to one of our customers’ storage or processing sites in the East of England. Due to the structure of the day, it makes sense to be ‘up the road’ for most of the week, overnighting on farm or near the customer’s sites.

Benefits & Salary

  • Basic pay £13.00/hr first 8 hours M-F, £14.25/hr thereafter.
  • Breaks paid for (worth an extra ~3-6% on the rate over employers who deduct for breaks).
  • Overnight allowance £26.20 tax free.
  • Saturdays £14.25/hr all hours worked.
  • Sundays £14.25/hr first 8 hours, £19/hr thereafter.
  • Bank holidays £19/hr all hours worked.
  • CPC training organised and paid for by the Company, on Company time.
  • Weekly pay.
