HGV Class 1 Drivers

Aldi are opening 80 new stores a year at present and are opening their brand new Regional Distribution Centre in Cardiff in 2017.

That's fantastic news for them - and if you're HGV qualified, it's great for you too.

We are looking for experienced Drivers to deliver products to their ever expanding retail network, ensuring that everything gets to where it's needed.

We have vacancies for temporary to permanent contracts to work at the new Regional Distribution Centre in Cardiff.

As a Driver it's your job to ensure that products reach Aldi stores in premium condition.

This is about attitude and initiative.

First and foremost, you're a team player who appreciates how we all need to work together to keep things running smoothly.

You're also a problem-solver: someone who can keep their cool and find solutions even under pressure.

Crucially, you'll need a full, valid, clean HGV class 1 licence.

A typical working day starts with you loading up fruit and veg for delivery to several stores.

Sometimes you'll also have a second delivery of ambient goods to make.

And finally you'll collect any empty pallets and return them to the warehouse.

Market-Leading Package

Aldi offer a minimum starting wage of £10.00 if you work days and £11.50 if you work nights.

These pay rate will increase once you start on a permanent contract with Aldi.

When you're earning good money over shorter distances, life is sweet: you'll have more time for yourself and the family.

What's more, we'll give you four week's paid holiday (rising to five), plus paid Bank Holidays, so even better.

Excellent Working Conditions

You'll be working with great kit, which takes much of the stress out of your job.

Plus, you'll spend your breaks in decent relaxation areas with tea and coffee facilities, and free fruit.

Aldi encourage their Drivers to have their breaks together so they share information and travel updates.

To be considered for the role of driver you must have:

  • HGV class 1 licence (Cat C+E or C or CE).

  • No more than 6 points - No DR or IN codes.

  • Drivers digital card.

  • Loading & unloading own wagons.

  • 8 - 12 months experience driving a HGV class 1 vehicle minimum.

Due to the location and shift times for this position you must have your own transport.

Opportunities available include working days to suit:

  • Positions are offered on a 12 week temporary to permanent basis and you will transfer to permanent payroll with Aldi on week 13.

  • Contracts are full time, working 5 on 3 off, which includes working on weekends.

  • Contracts are a minimum of 40 hours per week on a shift rota basis.

The approximate start times for shifts we currently have available are:

  • 10am starts (Day Shift)

  • 10pm starts (Night shift)

You will need to be flexible to work between the hours available (8-10 hours a day).
