Job Reference

HRGO Driving are currently seeking HGV class 1 drivers who have a keen interest in working for Waitrose in Aylesford!

Other duties may simply involve a trailer swap at an RDC, and return to the depot, or collecting farm produce from a farm and returning the stock back to the depot.

Delivery locations will include Kent, South East London, Essex and Ipswich.
