Best cities for finding forklift driver jobs
As we said before, there’s a shortage of forklift operators in the entire country. If you’re looking for forklift driver jobs in London, you’ll definitely find the largest number and variety of vacancies. London is famous for having the highest average salary in the UK, but also for the highest average cost of living. An excellent alternative if you want to work in a large urban centre is to take on a flt job in Manchester. The city offers quality of living as high as London, but has lower rent costs. But if your priority is having better job opportunities at an even lower cost of living than Manchester, go for a flt job in Birmingham. The city is a global hub for industry, ecommerce and businesses, and still more affordable than Manchester or London. Now, if you value work-life balance, a friendly environment, and you’re a Beatles fan (or not), a flt job in Liverpool could be the right choice for you. These aren’t your only options, though. You’ll also find plenty of excellent forklift driver jobs in Glasgow, Nottingham, and Leicester.
