Missions: Geavy goods vehicle (HGV) driver

Temporary work is crucial in this sector, offering companies the flexibility to manage seasonal variations in activity, replace absent drivers, and quickly respond to specific requests.
The duties of an HGV driver include vehicle preparation before departure, loading and unloading goods while complying with safety procedures and regulations. They plan their route, complete deliveries according to the schedule, and manage transport documents. The HGV driver is also responsible for the routine maintenance of the vehicle and must report any anomalies. Effective communication with clients and the logistics team is essential for success in this profession.

Skills and training

The Class C driving license is essential, complemented by Initial Mandatory Minimum Training (FIMO) and Ongoing Mandatory Training (FCO) for goods transportation. A CAP in road driving or a professional baccalaureate in road transport of goods can also be an advantage.
With experience, an HGV driver can advance to roles such as trainer, team leader, or fleet manager. Specialization in transporting specific types of goods (hazardous materials, refrigerated transport) can also open career opportunities.
Temporary work offers HGV drivers the opportunity to discover different sectors of activity and types of transport, enriching their professional experience. This provides great flexibility in choosing assignments and contributes to a balance between professional and personal life. For companies, temporary staffing is a practical solution to adjust their transport capacity to actual needs while accessing a pool of qualified and flexible drivers.
