JJ targets women for driver jobs

Enfield, UK: JJ Foodservice has launched a female-friendly recruitment campaign to encourage more women to consider HGV driver roles.

“Only 1% of HGV drivers in the UK are women – we want to help change that,” says JJ human resources manager Joanna Florczak.

The move comes as the UK is experiencing a huge shortage of delivery drivers in the UK as Brexit kicks in and European workers return home.

JJ points out that women’s jobs were found to be 1.8 times more vulnerable to the global pandemic than men’s (McKinsey).

Traditionally, HGV driver roles may not have appealed to females. But advances in technology have taken the physicality out of the job, says JJ.

JJ offers HGV drivers permanent contracts with no evenings or weekends, and salaries of up to £35K.
