Our Role
We have an opportunity for an HGV Grab Driver to join our team, based at our Oxford Depot. As an HGV Grab driver, you’ll be responsible for undertaking driving duties on reinstatement works on highways and private land projects.

Above all you’ll have a high appreciation for safety in everything you do, and work with your team to promote a strong safety culture.
