HGV HIAB Driver - £32,000 - £45,000 per annum

Due to our continued success,  we are expanding  our senior lorry loader team.

We are looking to recruit an experienced HIAB crane lifting operator with ALLMI license.

You will have a sound geographical knowledge of the UK and have worked as a professional HIAB  or other crane lorry driver.  Happy and familiar driving in London and other large UK cities. 

You should be familiar and confident loading and moving the majority of the following;

  • cabins
  • containers
  • portable toilets
  • heras fencing
  • pallets
  • hot tubs
  • abnormal loads
  • wide loads
  • unbalanced loads
  • pillars, poles, metal structures etc

Hook lifting experience is essential (grab lifting alone will not be enough experience for our requirement)

Early starts, some later or over nights and very occasional weekends (at enhanced rates) will be expected - so you must be flexible and willing to spend some nights in the cab when required.

The vehicle you will be driving is Class 2 but will often be attaching a trailer; therefore a Class 1 license is essential for this role. Ideally you will have experience of working within the regulations for FORS and hold full CPC.

It's not just about the driving, either... we expect all of our team to be personable, well presented and focused on providing the best possible customer service at all times.

Attention to detail, literacy and recent, relevant experience will help make your application stand out!

We have excellent staff retention and can offer full uniform, 20 days holiday plus all bank holidays and bonus scheme for the right people.  We provide regular training updates and courses for all of our drivers.

We will only consider drivers with plenty of recent, extensive and professional HIAB/ Palfinger / other hook crane experience.

We have a website www.sussextransport.com - find out more about what we do!

Our Head office and depot is based in Lancing, West Sussex. and ideally you'd be based here - however we also have provision to operate from Dorking in Surrey if you live nearer there! ...Or you could sleep Monday - Friday in the cab if you live further afield – so don’t let location put you off applying!

We would be interested to hear from drivers with additional skills such as Appointed Person /Slinger Signaller/ Banksman /ADR  - and salary will be paid according to skills and experience.

If you have everything listed above  - we will pay a very generous salary for your skills and experience -  you could realistically earn c£45k

Please submit a recent CV / resume of work experience to our HR department  with your salary expectations - or call 01903 791217 for an application form if you do not have a CV.
