Job opportunities

We operate DAF CF85 tractor units on our tanker fleet and MAN TGS units on dry bulk work. Our straw wagons are chiefly DAF CF wagon & drag combinations. Within our skilled and dedicated workforce we have many long serving driving staff but occasionally job vacancies for LGV C+E haulage drivers arise due to retirement or operational need.

Open job vacancies

We’ve got the work, now we need your help: Class 1 Drivers required in South Norfolk

We are looking to recruit a permanent HGV Class 1 (LGV C+E) Driver to work in our agricultural haulage operation, which may include milk, cereal, sugar beet or big bale straw haulage. Your start times are from between 5am and 7am with a day normally taking around 12 hours to complete.

Our work here is varied and we like to be flexible so you will be trained on each type of haulage within the business. We aim to ensure during training that you are assigned to one discipline at a time to ensure you are familiar with it before trying other types of haulage.

We work 365 days a year so you’ll need to be up for some weekend and bank holiday working. Full on the job training for all aspects of our work is provided with assessment based and Driver CPC training delivered on site by experienced external training providers. Most of our work takes us onto farms so a strong interest in farms and farming would help you get the most out of the job. We recognise your contribution on these occasions and at the end of a long day, so you’ll get good rates of overtime pay. The basic pay is pretty good for the hours and type of work we do too. Earnings potential are in the region of £35,000pa, depending on the hours and number of weekends you work. Knowledge of GB domestic driving hours would be advantageous because milk haulage is exempt from EU drivers’ hours rules, but full training will be given.

We ask that you’re reliable, punctual and able to show your best to our farmers and customers. We’re in the food and farming business, so personal hygiene and presentation are important, but we trust that you’ll be as professional in this regard as you are in your driving and record keeping. We’re a family business and we hope that our friendly, experienced and dedicated staff will help make your time here an enjoyable one.
