Operational roles | drivers

Giving our people the chance to progress is key. If you want to join our team as a loader, then you’ll have plenty of chances to become a driver with us.

What does being a driver at Veolia involve?

A typical day for our drivers starts at their local depot, where they’ll check over their vehicle and pick up specific instructions. During their shift, they’ll work with their team to complete their recycling and waste collection rounds both safely and efficiently. If they ever run into any issues during their shift, then they can contact the depot for assistance.
