LGV Cat CE Class 1 Driver

The Best Connection are currently seeking numerous Class 1 night drivers to fulfil our requirements for a company in Detling.

You will be completing a minimum of 10 hours per shift.

To begin, you are required to contact The Best Connection branch in order to book an appointment to come into the office and complete all relevant registration forms.

The role itself requires the candidate to operate a class 1 vehicle, and drive it to a specific motorway in the UK, in which maintenance will be completed by the highway maintenance team. You will be transporting all of the essential tools in order to ensure a smooth operation when you arrive.

Bearing this in mind, it is essential that you have previous experience in shunting, especially reversing the vehicle into tight spaces.

Please note you are unable to leave the vehicle when you arrive to the specific destination due to not holding the relevant motorway ticket. Please contact us for more information regarding this rule.
