Yes. We have opportunities for forklift drivers to work for a wide range of clients based across London, and between them their shift patterns cover virtually every hour of the day and night. So if your idea of temporary is evenings, or weekends, or early mornings, you should find something to suit.
Strictly speaking, no. There isn’t a formal forklift licence in the UK (despite plenty of jobs stating that they have some sort of forklift licensing requirement). What the UK does have, however is a requirement to be certified to drive to the standards required by RTITB, ITSAAR, ALLMI, NPORS or AITT, all standards approved by the Health and Safety Executive. You will be expected to have one of these accreditations. If your employer will be asking you to drive the forklift on any public roads, you will also require a UK driving licence.
That’s not the aim of Staff Heroes. We’re not saying it never happens, but we occupy a very specific place in the market for workers who value the flexibility of being able to choose their own temporary work.
