HGV driver jobs in Leeds: 7 HGV driver jobs near me as seen on recruitment website Indeed
The HGV lorry driver crisis in the UK has seen hundreds of employers increase working benefits to encourage new candidates for jobs.
Currently there is a shortage of 100,000 heavy goods vehicle drivers for several reasons including pay issues and drivers retiring.
The shortage has seen petrol stations across the UK struggle to provide to customers, leading to a nationwide fuel crisis last week.
The Government has announced a new scheme that allows migrant workers to enter the UK on a probationary period to fill the gap in the drivers market.
However so far there has been little success with migrant workers claiming the temporary visas on offer.
Here is a list of some of the jobs available and the new benefits on offer in Leeds.
