Arla Driver Apprenticeship Programme, UK

At Arla, we do so much more than make some of the world's favourite dairy products. We make healthy taste delicious, mornings worth getting up for and family dinners unforgettable. Cravendale®, Anchor®, Lurpak® and Tickler® - names like these make us a vital, natural part of modern life in over 100 countries around the world. We are 4,000 UK and 19,000 global employees at the heart of it. Every single one of us plays an important role and together we build on our 10bn Euros turnover and establish our position as one of the largest dairy companies in the world.

We are recruiting Driver Apprentices across our transport hubs in Aylesbury, Westbury, Leeds, Lockerbie and Burton on Trent. It is estimated that the UK needs another 150,000 drivers by 2020 to meet growing demand so our Apprenticeship gives you a great way to earn money while you learn the skills to do the job.

Our structured 12 month Apprenticeship provides a Level 2 Driving Goods Vehicle qualification and a career within the UK's largest dairy company that by 2020 will have an even bigger milk pool to meet business targets. 

After 3 months of the programme, you will have attained an LGV Class 2 licence with experience of bulk farm milk collections and an understanding of transport office operations. By 6 months you will have gained more supervised driving experience and had exposure to the full end to end logistics process. 9 months in you will be working on a shift with a full understanding of the entire operation leading to you being fully qualified and experienced by 12 months with a view to moving into a permanent, full time role within the team. 

Your earnings will increased significantly over the 12 months and beyond. Starting salary is £4.84ph for the first 12 weeks, rising to £6.16 after 12 weeks, £7.04 after 6 months and £7.93 after 12 months. Once qualified, average earnings can range between £21,000-£27,000.
