Grocontinental’s Logistics Manager, Ross McPhillips, is urging high-calibre LGV1 drivers to get in touch with him to find out about the current opportunities available at the company.

“We are on the look-out for drivers who would be interested in joining us,” says Ross.  “Because of the size of our business, we are able to offer great rates of pay and total flexibility with a range of shift patterns, either full-time or on a casual basis.  Shift patterns include Monday - Friday, Thursday - Monday, weekends and nights.

“Our wide customer base also means that drivers have the opportunity to enjoy a varied work schedule throughout the UK which changes each week.”

With Grocontinental, drivers can also enjoy the peace-of-mind of secure and stable employment, and with a policy of regularly renewing its fleet, drivers get the chance to experience the latest vehicles.

The company also invests heavily in driver training and has a dedicated in-house team to support drivers on a day-to-day basis.

Ross is also keen to point out the benefits of driving as a career:

“Driving is a well-paid, flexible and rewarding career. Many people don’t consider working as a driver because of inaccurate perceptions of what the job involves.  It is a very professional career with a high degree of independence, and a good level of responsibility which means the job is challenging and interesting.  No two-days are ever the same.

“With the lowering of the age of LGV1 drivers from 21 to 18, driving has now become an excellent and accessible career option for young people too.  This year, we will be working with students at our local secondary school to showcase the benefits a career in driving can offer.”

Anyone interested in joining the Grocontinental driving team should contact Ross directly on 01948 668312 or 07963 905245.  Alternatively, to register your interest, email and Ross or a member of his team will contact you immediately.
