About The Role

Are you an experienced HGV Driver looking for something different in your next driving role - where no two days are the same and you can combine your love of driving with a sense of pride in delivering fantastic customer service? Read on and find out more about joining a team where your contribution is truly valued.   

At Sunbelt Rentals UK, our vision is to own the future of rentals. In the last year alone, we’ve invested more than £10 million on vehicles and £1.5 million on a new logistics system, ensuring our network of over 1000 transport colleagues always remain connected and our customers receive a world-class service. Our FORS Gold accreditation demonstrates our commitment to driver and vehicle safety, supporting our core value of ensuring safety as our number one priority.                   

We now have a fantastic opportunity for an HGV Category C Driver to support our Service Centre operations, helping us to deliver our promise of quality products and services on time, every time for our customers.

Every day brings something new - travelling to different locations, meeting customers, delivering and collecting a wide range of plant hire equipment – from excavators and telehandlers to generators and scissor lifts - to name just a few. You’ll also demonstrate how to operate the equipment, so we’ll ensure that you have the training and skills needed to carry this out in a professional and safe manner.

  • Licence category E with Driver CPC and Digital Driver Card is desirable (Training may be available)
