Are you looking for some extra work outside of your normal working week or a role in which you can work in the evening around family commitments? Looking to save up for and pay off your Christmas spend? Do you hold a full clean UK driving licence and are a confident, safe driver? If you answered "yes" to these questions, my client has an exciting opportunity for you.

My client is seeking experienced drivers to operate 3.5t vans during the months of mid-November to mid-April. Your primary responsibility will be to carry out winter services across various sites in the Ipswich area, ensuring these areas are safe and free from ice, snow, and frost, making them secure for both vehicles and pedestrians. While you will receive full training on how to operate the specialist vehicles, you should have held a driving license for over 5 years and be particularly confident in navigating icy and snowy conditions.

Your role will involve collecting and returning the vehicle and equipment from the Depot. You will be assigned various sites to cover during an average 6-8 hour shift, typically between 6 pm and midnight (with some variability). The position will be on an on-call basis, but thanks to advanced weather forecasting equipment, you will usually have advance notice of your schedule for the upcoming week. Over the 6-month period, you will be required to cover approximately 40-50 shifts.

In return for your commitment and reliability, you will enjoy the following benefits:
  • Competitive hourly rate: £12.50 per hour
  • Monthly incentive: Receive a £100 bonus per month if you work all shifts offered in that month
  • Comprehensive training: Get full paid training on equipment usage and site coverage
  • Weekly pay: Enjoy the convenience of weekly payments
  • Accrued holiday pay: Build up your holiday pay for well-deserved breaks
Join my client's dedicated team, known for their commitment to safety and excellence in winter services. You'll be part of a supportive and collaborative work environment, where your contributions will be valued and rewarded.
If this opportunity excites you and matches your availability and skills, please APPLY NOW to be a part of this essential and rewarding role. Your commitment and dedication will play a vital role in ensuring the safety of our community during the winter months. Don't miss this chance to make a real difference and earn competitive rewards while doing so. Apply today!
