Case Study: Jason Saxby, HGV Driver

17 Jan

Jason was an extremely practised HGV driver - with over 19 years of experience - before he came to work for BSS and further his driving career. While previous driving experience is great, we also look for people who have an enthusiasm for driving, a positive attitude and above all a professional manner. In the last four years working for BSS, Jason has enjoyed the many benefits of working under the Travis Perkins umbrella and has experienced a very rewarding driving career. Here’s a little insight into life working for BSS:

“The best part of my job is being trusted to get the work done”

Being given the freedom to get on and do the job is just one of the many bonuses Jason enjoys working at BSS. Our people are encouraged to use their initiative and oversee their own duties which eliminates the need to be micromanaged and creates a supportive atmosphere. Jason also enjoys the social aspect of working with a friendly team at his branch and interacting with customers when offloading at sites.

“A major benefit of working for BSS is the company’s focus on safety and staff wellbeing”

Jason appreciates all the major perks that come with working for the Travis Perkins Group. His branch enjoy team building events, are recognised for their work and benefit from the knowledge that they have job security. Amongst these benefits, BSS and Travis Perkins are also committed to promoting staff wellbeing and providing our staff with great company benefits.

“A typical day will include many timed slots into London which are very specific and need to be met”

After arriving at the branch and sorting the notes for the day ahead Jason will check his load is safe and ensure he has everything he needs for the orders. Once completing this he’ll set off for his deliveries and aim to keep to the strict time slots. From Jason’s experience the offloading process will differ between each site and this will define how the rest of the da pans out for him, meaning that he must be prepared for any setbacks and maintain his can-do attitude.

“Outside of work you’ll find me socialising with friends and family”

When Jason isn’t enjoying the social atmosphere at work you can find him spending time with his friends and family, enjoying his fishing and taking trips abroad.

“It’s a challenging but rewarding job”

Jason admits that driving in London to complete deliveries doesn’t come without its challenges but come the end of the day it’s a very rewarding feeling to know your customers have everything they need. It’s this attitude towards work that makes Jason such a great fit for BSS.
