Default Leaving the Army

Hi all I am British Soldier well due to leave in 2 months currently based in Fallingbostell, I have my full Class one HGV with experience in Heavy Haulage I speak German well enough to get me by. I have had a look through the forum does anyone know of any Haulage companies that will take a Germany/British speaking driver with runs back to the UK?.

I have a home with my FiancÚ and know I need to register at the amt and get health cover but I am having no look on the internet to find a job and time is running out for me.

Many thanks in advance

Dan

I don't know of any off hand but have you tried a German google with 'LKW-Fahrer jobs' or approaching some of the haulage companies that make daily runs to Germany from the UK?

First question - do you have the appropriate German licenses to drive whatever you are looking at?

I have 12 years service and held a full clean License since passing my tests full HGV since 2004 and was a tank transporter for the last 2 years. Also done on the side work in the UK driving nights for 4 years so I am used to modern trucks as well as old army ones. If you would like any more info please PM me I am running low on resources and running out of time fast

There are many german ,dutch and belgian haulage companies who employ British LKW drivers ,Franz Maas, Eddie Stobert , just to name 2 off hand , but before they allow you to go international be prepared to do 12 to 18months of local work
