Warehousing / Logistics
If you intend to work within the distribution and logistics industry you will more than likely want to train as a forklift driver. There are a number of different types of forklift, but the most popular are the counterbalance and reach truck. A fully qualified forklift operator could earn between £18,000 to £23,000 P.A. with the average wage being around £20,500.
Building / Construction
The construction industry has been buoyant over the last few years and we see no reason for it not to continue. There is an abundant number of plant machine courses available, such as an excavator, telescopic handler or forward tipping dumper truck being the three most popular. These are being used not only in construction but on the Highways, Railways and Dockyards. On average an excavator driver could earn between £16.00 and £19.00 per hour.
