Who we employ at the Sevenoaks/Kent depot

HGV driver/operators

Our Kent-based driver/operator job vacancies are much more than basic driver roles. We are looking for qualified HGV operators to take the wheel of one of our distinctive fleet of Lanes vehicles and take on a broad range of responsibilities.

Our vehicle operator positions see staff getting involved in our essential engineering, repair and maintenance work, while interacting directly with clients to provide a high-quality customer service experience. To facilitate this, our drivers receive extensive training on the use of our top-of-the-range tools and equipment.

Prior drainage industry experience is beneficial but not essential, which makes this an ideal opportunity for professional drivers from all backgrounds to retrain in an exciting new line of work.

Roles include:


We are among the biggest employers of drainage engineers in the UK, and our team of qualified engineers in Sevenoaks work tirelessly on imaging, repairing and unblocking drains and sewers of all shapes and sizes across the Kent region.

Our engineering crew are at the heart of everything we do at Lanes Group, working with some of the most sophisticated technology available and serving clients from multiple sectors, in partnership with highly skilled colleagues.

By joining our engineering team, you’ll be able to acquire new skills and work as part of a multidisciplinary team, while also delivering reassurance and guidance for customers in need.

Roles include:


Lanes Group wouldn’t have the success it does without our office-based staff in place to handle all of our essential administration, planning, management and support functions so efficiently.

Our administrative staff in Sevenoaks provide our field-based engineers and drivers with the information they need to complete their urgent work in a timely manner, while building a strong relationship with clients and staying in regular communication with them.
