Are you looking to start your career within the tanker driving industry, but currently do not possess the required driving qualifications (e.g. LGV Cat C, CPC, ADR)?  Are you looking to commence your career in a company that puts the learning, development, and retention of its drivers at the heart of their operation? If yes, the WCF Chandlers’ Driver Academy could be the one for you!

Our Aim:

To attract, retain, and develop a loyal and engaged driving team to support our customer service excellence ambitions

At the end of the program, you will be qualified and competent in all aspects of tanker driving, including:

✓ Hold a LGV Category C Licence

✓ Gain CPC & ADR qualifications

✓ Hold a Petroleum Driver Passport (PDP)

✓ Understand safety processes & procedures

✓ Know the importance of good customer service

– all of the key ingredients to commence your career with WCF!

 “The Driver Training Academy is a project we’ve been considering for some time as a means of bringing in new talent to our business to support our growth ambitions.  The idea really came to fruition in recent months as we identified a shortage of drivers within the industry.  We soon realised this wasn’t isolated to either our industry or locality, but a nationwide shortage of trained and dedicated drivers.

Our Driver Training Academy will create opportunities for people who might not otherwise have considered the role or those who may not have been shortlisted as part of our ordinary recruitment processes, due to not holding the relevant qualifications - allowing a fantastic opportunity for those looking to retrain or to pursue a career they have always wanted.     

Our aim is to provide a career path to progress through the programme, delivering training for drivers to acquire their HGV licence and equip them with the skills and qualifications needed to perform to the highest level within our business.  

The training will also consist of dedicated support and mentoring, delivered by both our internal Training Manager and external training partners. We are really excited to get the programme started and to welcome new people to the WCF Chandlers family.”
