Forklift Drivers move loads to and from different locations.
Salaries depend on location, employer and level of responsibility.
Although no formal entry qualifications are required to become a Forklift Driver, it is generally recommended to achieve four GCSEs, including maths and English, at grade 4 (C) or above, or their equivalents, such as the Welsh Baccalaureate or Scottish Nationals.
Approved forklift training must be completed before operating a forklift vehicle. Basic training is often provided by an employer and would take place at either a training centre or on site. After basic training, there may be the opportunity to attend further forklift training courses.
