About the employer

Ready to take your career up a gear? This AO Apprenticeship gives you the opportunity to become a fully qualified HGV Driver and earn a salary at the same time. AO Apprenticeships are open to anyone with a full, clean licence and the drive to build a career behind the wheel. As an AO Apprentice, you’ll complete both the theory and practical tests needed to obtain your C+E License and we’ll take care of the fees so you can focus on getting the skills you need. You’ll start your journey as part of a two-person crew delivering electricals - big and small - to happy customers from day one. Learning on the job, you’ll become the trustworthy smile behind every box and deliver the kind of service that’s helped us earn more than 290,000 ‘Excellent’ Trustpilot reviews so far. You’ll deliver everything from washing machines to wine coolers, so you’ll need to be physically fit to take on the bulky stuff. Don’t worry, you’ll get all the manual handling training you need too. You’ll work a well-balanced shift pattern, and it probably goes without saying, but you’ll be expected to follow all driving legislation and company policies too. At the end of the apprenticeship, there’s the chance we’ll find a place for you within AO on a permanent basis - so who knows where this apprenticeship could lead to?!
