Road to Logistics is a Community Interest Company established with Government backing, to tackle the UK Driver Shortage.
We are offering individuals who are currently out of work and claiming a qualifying benefit , the opportunity to train to be a HGV Driver, with a guaranteed interview with one of our logistics partners.
The training and test will all be paid for, so all we need from you is a clean UK driving licence, and commitment to the programme.
We are proud to be partnering with Corporate Solutions Logistics, who are looking for a number of drivers for their Droitwich operation. These roles are to drive articulated vehicles so the training involved will be for a Cat C+E license.
Corporate Solutions Logistics are a highly successful logistics provider, offering logistics solutions to a variety of retailers including Lidl and Aldi.
Their people are at the heart of the operation. Blending their supportive and encouraging culture with their proven history of creating and maintaining long-term relationships with customers – some spanning over a decade – CSL teams truly take pride in enabling customers to deliver exceptional services.

Gaining a HGV licence usually costs around £3k so this is a unique opportunity to gain a new qualification with no cost implication for you. The Road to Logistics course is a 6 week programme that will take you from car license to Category C+E and includes the Driver CPC qualification, Health and Safety Qualification and some employability and sector awareness training.
Driving is a really rewarding job. No two days are the same and you will be interacting with a large range of customers, representing your organisation and ensuring the safe and timely collection of waste.
Logistics is a fantastic sector to work in, with lots of opportunities for progression once you have your foot on the first rung of the ladder. It is also a booming industry so there are plenty of roles and crucially during these difficult times, lots of job security.
