HGV Direct vacancies

HGV Direct are looking to hire the best commercial vehicle parts experts and support staff in the industry, across its 17 locations. As an independent business, you are more than just a number to them and will be part of the HGV Direct family. With over 150 employees working hard to offer best-in-class service along with industry-leading technology, you can be sure that you will be joining a forward-thinking and fast-paced environment that can offer you much more than just a job.

So, what is the opportunity?

HGV Direct is looking to hire a VAN DRIVER for its busy Crayford branch. You will be a vital part of a well-established team that goes on and above to ensure their clients get the parts they need when they need them.

Your role as a van driver 

First and foremost, you are the face of HGV Direct, an ambassador, the eyes and ears of the business. You will be interacting with customers every day, making sure they receive the right parts, on time, every time. Not only this you will ensure customers have the latest marketing material when it becomes available and relaying any important information back to the team in the branch. 

You will be responsible for your vehicle, in terms of keeping it looking good on the outside and the inside. After all, it is your mobile office and place where you will spend a lot of your working day. Reporting any defects and completing the relevant records as soon as they arise is key to ensuring safety.

You will also be planning your routes effectively to ensure fuel efficiency is maximised and wear and tear is minimised. This in turn will reduce delivery lead time.

Why should you work for HGV Direct?

Sales Director – Dale Terry says “Stability, progression, and authority. The strongest teams are built on foundations where their input is valued, they are empowered to make decisions and are also rewarded for the results. We strive for the perfect balance between a family-run culture and a national group’s buying power, strength, and stability. At HGV Direct we work closely as a Board of Directors with the Branch teams to ensure they are supported to achieve both personally and professionally.”


If progression is what you are looking for then look no further. Many HGV Direct Parts Advisors and Branch Managers started off as van drivers. They learned the ropes and built relationships with the customers, adding knowledge of parts along the way. Joining a growing established business like HGV Direct means you will not be overlooked when opportunities arise. The business is built on a meritocracy so if you do well, the reward will be there for you.

So, what type of person are we looking for to join us here at HGV Direct? 

So let us assume the obvious, punctual, hard-working and that you have a clean driving license etc.

If you come from within the industry great, but it is not essential. HGV Direct is a values led business, so honesty, integrity, passion and desire to succeed will outshine previous experience. Training and development are key to what HGV Direct do, so you will be supported all the way.

Sound great so far, so what are the salary and working hours?

40hours - Monday to Friday plus every two Saturdays per month (6 hours only averaging 43 hours per week)

Salary depending on experience is up to £24,000 per annum
