How women are taking the wheel in HGV driving jobs

How women are taking the wheel in HGV driving jobs

In the past, lorry and HGV driving jobs have had a tendency to come across as a rather male-dominated career path. However, in recent years more and more women have entered the workforce, taking advantage of HGV driving vacancies and changing the face of the industry in the process.

The many benefits of a career as a delivery driver can be just as attractive to women as they are to men – with the opportunity to work flexible hours and choose job roles involving temporary or permanent contracts offering a good fit for many people.

The industry has also changed to help accommodate a more gender-equal environment, with companies like Prodrive recruiting on a strictly non-discriminatory basis, and offering a strong support system for all employees regardless of their age, gender, ethnicity or sexual orientation.

One reason it may have taken a little longer for women to become visible in the industry is the misconception that HGV Class 1 and HGV Class 2 Jobs require very physically strong and mechanically adept drivers. However, the technology used in modern vehicles – including streamlined suspension systems and automatic transmissions – mean this is no longer the case. With the full, on-going training provided by Prodrive, there’s no reason why anyone shouldn’t be able to master the skills required for the job.

Not only are women taking control behind the wheel, they’re also more visible than ever in executive and managerial roles in the driving and logistics industries, with well-known entrepreneurs such as freight magnate Hilary Devey and US trucking tycoon Andra Rush flying the flag for women on the road.
