We are on the lookout for an HGV Class 2 Driver to join a busy team in Daventry, for a client in the manufacturing industry. The driving position is being offered on a short contract basis starting as soon as possible and comes with a rate of up to £14.56 per hour.

HGV Driver experience is essential for this role. It involves delivering goods from a warehouse to a factory, a distance of around one mile, usually involving six loads per shift.

Although this role is currently offered on an Adhoc/holiday cover basis, the company you will be working for is anticipating an increase in business volumes, which could make this role more consistent and long-term.

To apply for this Class 2 driving position, you will require:

  • A minimum of two years' previous Class 2 driving experience
  • No more than 6 points for minor endorsements on your license (major endorsements including IN, DR and DD cannot be considered)


You will need to ensure that all legal driving requirements are met, including driver hours, and be responsible for H&S matters surrounding load and vehicle security. You will also require a practical understanding of the new digital tachograph regulations.

The pay rates are £11.89 for standard hours, Monday to Friday, and £14.56 per hour for overtime. The current shift pattern is 6.30 am to 4.30 pm, weekdays only. We're looking for drivers who can offer some flexibility, with start times to meet the customer's requirements and business demands which will run on occasion to a seven-day operation and three separate shift patterns.

If this HGV Class 2 Driver role in Daventry is something you are equipped for, contact us today to apply.

All interviews will be conducted online or on the phone. Your health and safety are of primary importance to Search Consultancy and the clients we represent.

Search is an equal opportunities recruiter and we welcome applications from all suitably skilled or qualified applicants, regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/beliefs, sexual orientation or age.
