  • Great driving skills without a hint of aggression
  • The ability to remain calm, collected and serene in the face of London traffic
  • You won’t have had more than one accident in the past two years
  • Take pride in your job: we’re one of the top-performing recovery operators in the country. We’re proud of that, and we want you to be, too
  • You’ll be a people person, able to put customers at their ease
  • Desire to undertake the HGV2 training and pass the test
