Where to find temporary work during the coronavirus pandemic

Olivia Baldock-Ward offers advice for any driver trainers who are seeking additional work during the coronavirus crisis

ADIs have many transferable skills which are useful at this time, with driving at the top of the list. Being proactive and looking for temporary work during this time isn’t the career you signed up for but it might mean that you have some income coming back into your household.

Businesses across the country want more drivers to be able to deliver essential supplies to stores and homes. Take a look at some of the guidance below to see what you can do to find work as a temporary stop-gap.

Anyone with an HGV licence is needed to help transport essential supplies across the country. If you hold an HGV licence, put it to good use and look at businesses and supply networks to help out and for additional income. 

A few essentials to bear in mind:

They say: “A positive attitude is much more important than delivery driver experience. Helpful and enthusiastic, you should really care about our customers and be a good team player who can work on your own initiative.

“Aged at least 21, you must know how to get about your local area. You’ll also need to have had a full UK driving licence for at least two years and currently have no more than three penalty points. Never banned from driving, you can’t gain any more than nine penalty points while working here as a home delivery driver.”
