JJ Foodservice has just launched a female friendly recruitment campaign to encourage more women to consider HGV driver roles.
As Brexit kicks in and European workers return home, there’s been a huge shortage of delivery drivers in the UK. JJ is aiming to fill the gap by broadening its talent pool.
“Only 1% of HGV drivers in the UK are women – we want to help change that,” said JJ’s HR Manager, Joanna Florczak. The wholesaler offers permanent contracts with no evenings or weekends, attractive salaries of up to £35K in London and no gender pay gap.
“Our drivers are the face of our business – they are friendly, professional and provide the great service that JJ has become well-known and loved for,” she added.
The wholesaler offers in-house training, long-term career prospects and modern vehicles. “When you are driving all day – automatic steering and a comfy seat matter!” she said.
JJ Foodservice increased its customer base by 22% last year and anticipates a continued increase in demand as restrictions ease and restaurants re-open.
