As a day driver for Eddie Stobart you’ll be working in the most common and most popular role type we offer. Being a day driver is as close to a typical 9 to 5 as a driver is going to get, but it still has the benefit of lots of flexibility around when the shift starts. If being home every night is important to you then day shifts are a great fit and most shifts will suit those still interested in maintaining a regular family life.
The length of your journey can vary across short, medium and long distances and you will have access to a wide range of routes across the UK. Days are very useful for drivers who enjoy touring the UK, but aren’t interested in spending nights out.
Our night drivers are able to enjoy some of the key benefits associated with days, but with many added extras on top. We of course offer higher rates for ‘out of hours’ working time, and drivers on night shifts are regularly able to carry out much more straightforward work in a number of ways. Journeys are much quieter with minimal traffic on the roads and no rush hour, and the routes are often far less complicated so you’re able to get more distance into your shifts.
Night shifts also allow you to be home on a regular basis and the flexibility of our start times still lets you lead a regular family life.
Tramping roles deliver the full experience of what being an LGV driver is all about. As a day tramper you’ll be traveling in your very own home away from home and you can get involved in the complete driving culture. You’ll meet lots of other drivers out on the roads and have the freedom to manage yourself. No day is the same for a day tramper and lots of freedom is a key benefit of the role. Our trampers also receive a supplement for nights out in their vehicles.
If you like working away and having the freedom to roam the UK and Europe, tramping is definitely the role for you.
Night tramping roles offer a great combination of the features and benefits seen in both day tramping and regular night shifts. You have in your truck a home away from home and the flexibility to roam the roads, but with the added benefit of clear and uncomplicated routes.
Our night trampers also get the full experience of what life is like out on the roads, but without the hustle and bustle of the daytime rat race. As with a regular night shift, night tramping rates are typically higher than many other shifts; in fact our night trampers are one of the highest paid driver groups at Eddie Stobart.
Our operational sites see a huge amount of activity each week and in order to ensure we’re running at maximum efficiency, we have teams of shunters and yard operatives who manage a number of key sites across our network. As a shunter for Eddie Stobart, you’ll play a crucial role in delivering effective organisation of your site.
Shunters are typically LGV qualified, although there are sometimes opportunities for non-LGV roles. The role is ideal for those who enjoy driving LGVs but prefer to be linked to one or a number of local sites.
