Product Manager

Hi, we are Connected2

We have built a really cool product that links contract LGV drivers directly to hirers, tearing up the recruitment rule-book. Cutting out the recruitment middleman means more money for the driver, cost savings for the hirer and increased transparency for both.

You’ve arrived at an exciting moment, the Connected2 app is available to download now, with the first jobs posted in January at the start of our staggered UK roll-out. Be part of the change from the start…
