Job Reference


As an organisation with over 30 years’ history in the Transport and Logistics sector, we are excited to be launching our new and innovative Platinum Driver Scheme.


The scheme is aimed at drivers who are, or have the ability to become, the best of the best. The elite.


You’ll bring your experience and commitment, we’ll provide you with industry leading benefits, competitive pay rates and continuous career development training. Together, we’ll challenge assumptions about how logistics businesses manage their seasonal peaks and holiday/sickness absence.


We are recruiting Class I Elite Drivers now to join our in-house Platinum Driver team.


This is a unique opportunity to take advantage of full-time, salaried employment with one of the UK’s leading logistics contract companies.


Backline offer career benefits that, quite simply, cannot be beaten:


  • Permanent, full-time (45hrs) contract of employment
  • Starting salary of £26,325 p/a
  • Private medical insurance plan (including family members)
  • Personal accident insurance
  • Life insurance plan
  • Competitive salary
  • Premium uniform
  • Ongoing career development training


By choosing Backline, you’ll experience stable, secure employment with the added benefit of variety, flexibility and being part of a team with a pedigree in the Transport & Logistics sector.


General responsibilities will include, but are not limited to:


  • A mixture of palletised, HIAB and caged deliveries and collections
  • Completing all relevant paperwork for deliveries and/or collections, as required
  • Ensuring daily vehicle checks & defect reports are completed
  • Liaising with your line manager to communicate any issues relevant to the work you have been allocated
  • Adhering to all relevant road traffic and working time regulations
  • Maintaining accurate driving hours, working time and rest period/break records using the appropriate method (digi/analogue tachograph)


Typically your shift pattern will be Monday to Friday with shifts starting between 05:00 and 09:00 although this may vary, within reason, in line with the needs of the business. Voluntary overtime will be available from time to time.


Apply online today or contact Maria or Vicki on 01935 478866 or yeovil@backlinelogistics.co.uk




We appreciate that as drivers you cannot often get in to register during the week without taking valuable time off!

So why not join the Yeovil office for their Open Day on the 30th March 2019 from 09:00am to drop in and learn about all the opportunities open to you!
