Employment: Preferably full-time. However, we are happy to consider alternative shift patterns and working hours. 

What are you going to do?

AB Texel UK are a large, well-established agricultural bulk transport company who are currently recruiting for a HGV Class 1 driver to collect and deliver agricultural goods nationally.

You will be the one who transports agricultural bulk goods, such as potatoes, to the factory. An important job, because without you, the goods will not arrive at the factory. You play an important link in the process of getting food to the final customers.

At AB Texel UK we understand that in order to perform your work optimally, you need good materials. That is why we have modern trucks and trailers. In addition, new drivers receive thorough training with us. They are trained and intensively supported and supervised by an experienced AB colleague who can teach them all the tricks of our specific trade. Our new drivers only begin to work independently once they have achieved our high standards and built up sufficient experience. Because only then are these drivers able to call themselves true AB specialists.

What does your work schedule look like?

You work in alternating weeks where you work 6 days one week and 5 days the other week. There are two options for this:

You start on Sunday:

  • Week 1 - 6 days on and 1 day off (Sunday to Friday)
  • Week 2 - 5 days on and 2 days off (Sunday to Thursday).

You start on Monday:

  • Week 1 - 6 days on and 1 day off (Monday to Saturday)
  • Week 2 - 5 days on and 2 days off (Monday to Friday).

Please indicate with your application whether you want to start your working week on Sunday or Monday

We are happy to consider alternative shift patterns if requested. Please let us know your availability with your application.
