About The Role

We currently have a vacancy for a Drivers Assistant to join the team and work alongside our experienced Drivers to provide a high level of service to our customers.

Maintenance visits and standby will also be an essential part of the role. As the public face of Live you will be well presented, communicate professionally with customers on site and promote the positive image of the business.

  • You may be required to assist the Driver Operator with the completion of related administration when delivering and collecting equipment, notably the completion of delivery and collection tickets and risk assessments on every job, and PIR’s and Damage Report Forms where appropriate
