Are you a Class 1 Driver with a minimum of 6 months relevant experience looking for an on-going position?

If yes, we have immediate work available for our new client based in Lichfield!

Job title:Class 1 Driver


The role of a Class 1 Driver:

We are currently looking to recruit 10-15 drivers for a mixture of days, nights and weekends so we can offer you the times you’re available for work. Shifts could be quite long and you could quite easily work towards maxing out your working hours in line with EU drivers hours regulations. This is a 24/7 operation so we have a variety of shift times available over the week.

We urgently need Class 1 drivers who will be making deliveries to a chain of trade counter stores within the UK.

You will have between 3-4 deliveries per shift, depending on the area you are given. These deliveries will nearly all be made up of cages with the occasional stillage. You will be required to unload the cages with the use of a tail lift and deliver into the store.

Pay rates vary for PAYE drivers depending on start times and are as follows during the week:

  • 05.00am-12.59pm £12.34 per hour
  • 13.00pm-15.59pm £12.76 per hour
  • 16.00pm-00.29am £13.58 per hour
  • 00.30am-02.59am £13.38 per hour
  • 03.00am-03.59am £13.17 per hour
  • 04.00am-04.59am £12.76 per hour

At weekends the rates start from £14.53 for Saturdays up to £17.61 for Sunday nights, for a full breakdown please contact us!

You will get the one rate above from above for the whole shift based on your start time.

All the rates above will have holiday pay accrued on top of the hourly rates!

We also don’t use ‘umbrella companies’ as they are no longer a benefit to you, the driver!

We can accept drivers who are set up as a Ltd Company, pay rates will be between £14.14-£20.86 per hour, again, depending on start times.

Requirements of a Class 1 Driver:

  • C+E Driving licence
  • 6 months relevant experience
  • No DR, CD or IN driving endorsements due to insurance restrictions
  • Available for on-going work

Benefits of working for Swanstaff:

  • Fantastic opportunity for regular work
  • Great pay rates, paid on a weekly basis by BACS
  • Holiday pay for PAYE drivers
  • Start times to suit you

These positions are very popular so don’t delay in contacting us!
