Throughout my employment leaving school at 16 I worked as a labourer, I had heard from other employees from my company that gaining an HGV licence was pretty straightforward and could be a good career path.
It came to the point where I had to make a decision whether to go to college or carry on working full time, a friend told me gaining a HGV was a fast process that could be done quickly – I much preferred to go down that route.
Within 3 months of making a call I had then gained my HGV Class 2 licence with specialised training. I had heard that finding a job could be challenging as a newly qualified driver but HGV recruitment then came into the picture and within a week of receiving my licences back I was out on the road driving full time with a great company. I am forever thankful to the team for giving me this opportunity to kickstart my career.
