Self Employed (Former Employee) – Greenside, Tyne and Wear – 22 April 2018
Work day started at 3.30am, deliver ready mixed mortar to designated building sites around the North East area and drive within HGV hours. After every delivery I had to wash out the machines. I learnt good communications skills with new building site managers, along with time management skills.It was a solitary job, mainly working along. The hardest part of the job were the hours with little time off. The most enjoyable part of the job was delivering further afield and seeing new areas and meeting new people.
Paying off a new lorry
Working hours, stress and anxiety of fulfilling delivery deadlines
Learnt a lot while here, great office to work in and everyone is so motivated to do well and the office is never quiet, full of young people who thrive in their environment and the CEO does a great job.

Driver (Current Employee) – Lancaster – 6 October 2016
A typical morning consists of an early start, check my truck is up to legal standard and is fully road worthy before filling in the relevant paperwork. Once on the road I have to ensure any loads get to the their destination safely and quickly, I may have to think quickly for an alternate route if the planned route has delays. At the end of what could be a 15 hour day I then then check the truck over again and fill in relative paperwork. Paperwork for the loads is done periodically through the day at collection and delivery points.
HGV Driver (Former Employee) – London – 26 September 2016
Multi-drop experience as a HGV driver in London. Cheerful and motivated young person able to start job from Today. Very good skills as a HGV driver in London. Safety driving. I am the driver of the HGV. Working in London allowed me to gain a lot of experience in the city where driving is very dangerous. London is a busy, poorly suited for hgv and a lot of careless drivers. As a result, in a year's time I gained a lot of experience as a HGV driver and I'm not afraid of anything. In previous work, an important role was to be always smiling and pleasant for customers.
