Easy As HGV is one of the longest established nationwide HGV training providers in the industry. We’ve got years of experience helping prospective HGV drivers just like you find their first job. Many of the recruitment initiatives offered by our competitors were created by Easy As HGV many years ago, and today we’re still working tirelessly to improve our service to our customers to ensure that getting into that first HGV driving role is stress free and enjoyable.
We believe that our recruitment service starts from the very first time you speak to Easy As HGV, because booking a course with us speaks volumes about the standard, quality and calibre of the training course you will be taking. Easy As HGV’s unique monitoring system ensures that we only place our Trainees with good quality schools whose emphasis is on turning out drivers who can cope with the rigors of a life on the road, are courteous and professional, and really know their stuff. Plus, before you even start your HGV training course, you’ll be in touch with one of our dedicated Team who will become your Personal Training Adviser. Your Adviser will make sure that they have covered all the course options with you, so that even right at the beginning you’ll feel confident that the course you’ve selected is the right one for you. Every single member of our Team has an in-depth, hands-on knowledge of the Industry you’re going into, so they’ll be able to advise you which add-on courses may benefit your career goals.
When you’ve registered with us, your Personal Training Adviser will send you our Starter Pack which includes a booklet showing you the many different recruitment services which are available to you as a customer of Easy As HGV. Many training providers simply provide an online jobs resource, but at Easy As HGV we believe that our interaction with our Trainees should be more personal and specialised. Don’t worry, we provide an online jobs resource too, and you can use the Job Finder at the bottom of this page, but that’s just the start of the many ways we’ll support you into your first job.
We know that searching for a job can be really stressful, which is why we’re committed to keeping our Recruitment Service as simple as possible. You’ll be pleased to hear that we manage to help you in all of the ways listed above with very little effort on your part; you simply give us the information we need, and we’ll do literally everything else for you. Our Recruitment Team will also communicate with you in a way that suits you so that we don’t interrupt your busy week.
The best part? The entire service is FREE when you book with Easy As HGV.
One of the things we like the most about the UK Logistics sector is the variety and flexibility of work available, and that’s never more true than in road transport. HGV Drivers benefit from increasingly flexible working patterns, meaning that they can often find more time to spend with their families and fit their work around their social commitments. Plus the scope of work is vast – you might be most comfortable making multi-drop deliveries in your local area, but if you’re more adventurous you could be travelling internationally. Below is a list of the sorts of jobs our past Trainees have found themselves doing. Yes, we do get the odd postcard!
HGV driving is a skilled, specialised career track – everyone who becomes an HGV Driver has been through a challenging training process and has proven driving skills. As such, the wages for HGV driving reflect the skill level, so even a newly qualified Category C driver can expect to earn £25k a year.
Some Trainees want to drive larger lorries as soon as possible, so for those who take on the challenge of the larger Category C+E, the earning potential for the first job starts at £28k.
As you can see from the sorts of jobs our previous Trainees have ended up doing, there are so many different ways that you can specialise as an HGV driver. For example, if you wanted to become a fully qualified ADR driver, transporting combustible fuel products internationally, you could be making £40k a year, whilst retaining the flexibility which comes with a driving role.
As with all careers, experience and dedication to the job often pay off, and drivers who have put in the effort and hours with an Employer will often be rewarded with increased salaries. Plus, as your Employers’ respect for you grows, it’s not unusual to be asked to undertake more complicated and better paid work for the same company. We hear countless stories of drivers starting with a company on an entry-level salary, earning their Managers’ respect, and being promoted. Sometimes Employers will even provide the training to get you qualified to take on the next challenge, for example putting you through a hazardous goods course, or giving you SAFED (Safe & Fuel Efficient Driving) training.
Beyond HGV driving the possibilities are endless, with HGV drivers taking on diverse Logistics roles including Management, Planning, Resourcing or even starting their own businesses.
