Pertemps Didcot have an exciting opportunity for an HGV Class 1 (Cat C+E) Driver to work for one of the most prestigious Gas companies in the UK. The role will be based at their Thame depot but due to the nature of this role, this will involve regular nights away.
This position is suited to someone either with experience within the gases sector or someone with the right attitude, who is eager to learn and step into a new career.
