At the Co-op we believe in putting our customers, colleagues and communities at the heart of everything we do. We inspire our teams to share their ideas to help us improve the way we work in our state-of-the-art depots. Now we’re looking to recruit a class 1 LGV driver to join us in our Dalcross Depot, and help us keep this well-oiled machine running smoothly.

Being a driver at the Co-op is different, and out on the road you’ll be representing the Co-op brand at all times. Other drivers, pedestrians and cyclists are our customers and members, so you’ll drive legally and professionally every shift, with customer service at the forefront of all your decisions. Once at store, you’ll help offload the stock into the warehouse, sometimes in challenging environments, making sure every item is delivered safely, on time and to the highest possible standard.

What you’ll do
  • deliver stock from depot to store in a safe, legal and professional way
  • become a brand ambassador, representing the Co-op out on the road
  • provide a fantastic delivery service to our colleagues
  • treat other road users and pedestrians with respect
  • help offload stock into store, sometimes in tricky and challenging settings
  • update the transport office with any issues or concerns with safety or delivery
  • make every effort to deliver stock through adverse weather conditions
  • remain calm and professional under pressure

To get going quickly, you’ll need a CE category LGV driver licence and experience as a driver in a similar role. We’ll look for you to have amazing customer service skills, as your customers are not just colleagues in store and back at the depot, but on the road too. We’ll also look for you to be a brand ambassador, with the ability to build strong working relationships.

We’d love to hear from you if:
  • you’ve got a CE category (old class 1) LGV drivers licence
  • you have previous experience as a driver, particularly long distance commercial deliveries
  • you have great customer service skills
  • you love being proud of the company you work for
  • you understand the impacts that poor service has on our brand
  • you love dealing with customers and the public
  • you’re able to communicate professionally
  • you’re organised and have strong time keeping skills

Why Co-op?
When you join the Co-op you’ll become part of an organisation where principles are just as important as profits. You’ll also get a competitive salary, great holiday allowance, an annual incentive scheme, discounts on all kinds of products and services, and a pension with up to 10% employer contributions.
We’re actively building diverse teams and welcome applications from everyone. But simply having a diverse workforce is not enough. We want to create an inclusive environment, where everyone can contribute their best work and develop to their full potential. We celebrate our differences, and recognise the importance of our teams reflecting the communities they serve.
We can make reasonable adjustments to our interview process according to your needs. And we offer a flexible working environment, enabling our colleagues to adjust their hours to accommodate personal circumstances. You can find out more about all our Co-op people policies at
As part of your application you’ll need to complete an online assessment. It will take you around 12 minutes to complete this test.
