Looking for HGV Class 2 Jobs in Hampshire?

If you’re looking for an HGV Class 2 driving job in Hampshire, Drive Personnel can help.

We are always seeking to recruit HGV drivers to work for our clients based in Hampshire, and typically have a number of HGV Class 2 driver roles to fill in Southampton, Portsmouth, Winchester and surrounding areas. We offer fantastic opportunities for drivers to develop their careers in the transport and logistics industry, supported throughout by our knowledgeable and experienced team.

At Drive Personnel, we recruit both newly qualified and experienced Class 2 HGV drivers for both full time and part time Class 2 driving positions. While most of our placements are required on a temporary basis, we can also offer temp to perm and permanent HGV Class 2 roles.

What Sort of Work Can I Expect as a Class 2 Driver?

Although there are obviously exceptions to the rule, generally speaking Class 2 roles tend to relate to day work, as many of our clients’ Class 2 vehicles are not equipped with sleeper cabs. This means that many of these roles include pallet or multi-drop deliveries, rather than long distance haulage.

This usually results in a good work-life balance; as a Class 2 lorry driver, you are more likely to be meeting and engaging with people during the course of your day and it is usually a better fit for drivers with young families or responsibilities at home or outside of work, with more sociable finish and start times.

Why Join Us?

Here at Drive Personnel we offer our HGV drivers a wide range of benefits including:

Excellent rates of pay
Regular, ongoing work and ad hoc casual work
Full-time and part-time roles
Flexible hours - Monday to Friday and weekend work available

Access to our Driver Portal

With a variety of clients based across Hampshire in Southampton, Portsmouth, Winchester, Eastleigh and Chandlers Ford, we can typically offer you choice not only in where you work, but also the type of role you fulfil.

Training Opportunities

At Drive Personnel, we believe it’s important to provide drivers with opportunities to further their careers and to this end offer the chance to work in a variety of different HGV driving roles, providing support to develop a range of driving skillsets and qualifications. We also offer discounted training options to our drivers to help reduce the costs of career development, examples of which may include Class 2 HGV drivers gaining their Class 1 licence or adding their HIAB certificate to their Cat C licence.

As an HGV Class 2 licence holder, drivers are required to maintain their driver CPC certificate of professional competence.

Make The Most of our Driver Resource Portal

As a specialist driver recruitment agency, we like to provide our drivers with the tools they need to excel in any HGV driving job. The Drive Personnel Driver Portal is a one stop shop for hints, tips, industry news and other useful information.

This may include articles such as updates on penalties, major long-term roadworks and a range of best practices to support driver training. This is a great way for drivers to keep up to date with the latest news on the roads across the South Coast and the UK.

Our dedicated team are available to provide help and support whenever you need them. Unlike many driver agencies, we offer a true 24 hour service, with no call centres! Our local office is manned by our experienced staff who understand the drivers, clients and the industry. This means that they are able to provide the best possible service to help you to do your job.
