Shunter Drivers are responsible for the safe on-site movement of heavy vehicles.
Salaries typically range depending on location and level of responsibility.
Although no formal entry qualifications are required to become a Shunter 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.
While there is no legal requirement for drivers of LGVs driven on company premises to hold a full LGV driving license, experience of driving heavy vehicles would be an advantage. Approved shunter training should be completed before operating heavy vehicles on-site.
Shunter Drivers must hold a full car driving license. Basic training would take place on-site and is provided by the employer in order to meet their duty of care under health and safety legislation.
