Part of the Vp plc group, TPA Portable Roadways is Europe’s leading supplier of temporary roadway and portable access systems.

Immediate starts are available, and full training will be provided through TPA’s award-winning academy programme.
HGV Driver/Operative (Winslow / Lesmahagow based)
As a Driver/Operative, successful applicants will work as part of a two person team on our heavy goods vehicles throughout the UK, and on occasion into Europe. However, driving will form only part of your duties, as once at your destination you will use the lorry loader crane on your vehicle to install and recover our unique range of temporary roadway products. You will be working on a wide spectrum of sites ranging from power transmission projects and major civil engineering works, to sporting events and music festivals. This unique role demands spending time away from home for several nights per week, sharing a sleeper cab is the norm and weekend working will be expected if needed. The successful applicants will have good literacy and numeracy skills, a flexible can-do attitude, a keen eye for safe working, and be physically fit due to the demanding nature of the work on site. A valid passport and digital tacho card are essential in our industry and applications will not be considered without these. A C+E licence, CSCS card, Driver CPC, CPCS or ALLMI Lorry Loader (hook), and BESC OHL would be advantageous. _______________________________________________________________________
