Do you have what it takes to become an HGV driver?


Whether you’re ‘tramping’ across Europe or multi-dropping here in the UK, there’s nothing quite like the independence and pride that comes with being out on the road; the king or queen of your cab.


HGV drivers are the backbone of our economy, keeping goods flowing and industry on the move. Without them the country grinds to a halt, which is why there’s always plenty of work out there for the best.


But what separates the best drivers from the average ones? How do we spot the difference and recognise your potential to become an elite driver?


Here at Backline we’ve taken on a challenge to transform perceptions across the industry by creating an elite driving force known as Platinum Field Staff Partners. The team enjoys top levels of job satisfaction and some of the best pay and support in the industry, ranging from free training to private health insurance.
