About The Role

Are you an enthusiastic and dedicated HGV Driver looking for the next step in your career? Now’s your chance to join our team at Sunbelt Rentals UK. It’s our vision to own the future of rentals and our mission to deliver a world-class experience.

As a Driver Operator you’ll be teamed up with one of our skilled Installation Operatives and be tasked with the delivery, installation and dismantling of our temporary access equipment on site. You’ll work closely together ensuring our equipment is delivered and installed safely and on time as well as keeping the vehicle and tools in good clean condition.

This is an exciting opportunity for those who enjoy working outside; this isn’t like other driving jobs. No two days are the same and flexibility between peak periods and quieter times is necessary. You will get the chance to travel across the country as well as Europe, supporting at some well-known events. The driving experience is vital but is only part of the responsibilities.

You will need to spend some nights away from home when you will share a sleeper cab with the Installation Operative. The hours can vary and may be unsociable including weekends.

About You

The Ideal candidate will:

  • Hold a Class 1 or Class 2 driving licence with no more than 6 points
  • Enjoy working closely with others
  • Have excellent communication skills
  • Understand the importance of working in a safe manner complying to H&S legislation
  • Show good attention to detail
  • Be competent in maintaining records digitally and on paper

It would be advantageous to have:

  • FLT Licence
  • Lorry loader licence (ALLMI/CPCS)
  • First Aid Training
  • CSCS/IOSH/H&S Awareness

This role covers a wide geographical area. Flexibility and a willingness to travel extensively including overnight stays is therefore essential.

Due to the nature of your role, the days and hours of work will flex in line with business needs but in line with the Working Time Directive. Your hours will vary from week to week, however your basic starting salary will be within the range £26000 to £35500 depending on experience.
