Runcorn ready for Downton recruitment day

On Saturday 30th August, Downton’s Runcorn depot will be opening its doors to visitors in a special recruitment-focused Open Day for HGV Drivers. 

Downton is searching for bright, ambitious new recruits to join its driver team as the business continues to experience significant growth. The open day – which will run from 9am until 1pm – is designed to give local people the chance to see the business first hand and enquire about live job opportunities with the company. 

Two driving assessors will be there on the day to discuss specific job requirements with anyone who would like to apply, and potential candidates will be able to talk to members of the team about working for one of the UK’s leading independent logistics firms.

Downton operations director John Downton will be on hand to offer advice and information on positions within the company. Looking forward to the event, he said: “Our Open Day will be a great start for anyone considering a career in logistics. Past experience isn’t essential – but hard work, dedication and a willingness to learn is!”    

The day isn’t only about recruitment, and anyone looking to learn more about what happens at one of Downton’s major distribution hubs is welcome to attend. Guided tours of the depot will be taking place for anyone wanting to find out what happens behind the scenes, and there will be a raffle and other activities happening throughout the day.

If you would like to book yourself in for a driving assessment or an interview in advance, please contact Jannette Wallace or Tim Ahl on 01928 703303.

You can find us at: Unit 2, Premier Point, Aston Lane South, Runcorn, WA7 3BE

We look forward to seeing you on the 30th!
