What will you need?

  • A full clean Class 5 license, stock handling experience would be ideal, but not necessary - we are keen to talk with anyone who has long haul, logging, tanker or stock truck experience.

For the right person if you have a Class 4 license and are willing to take the next step to a Class 5 - we would look to fund you into getting this.

Be home most nights only away 1-2 nights per week during very busy periods ($130 overnight allowance). We pay top dollar, and the average hours for the year are 60-65 hours per week, so our best and most experienced drivers are earning between $90-$100K per annum.
