HGV Driver (Days/Nights)

Our Drivers are pretty special. We count on them to achieve fantastic levels of service as they deliver our goods to stores all over their particular region. We’re constantly striving to achieve an efficient and co-operative working environment, and Drivers play an enormous role in that. 

Unusually, your time is split between two key areas – professional driving together with loading and unloading deliveries. So it’s a lot more physical than typical Driver roles as only 40% is actually spent driving.

When delivering goods to stores, you’ll understand the need to optimise space and minimise any loss. Sometimes you might need to work with store or warehouse colleagues, so safety (of our people, customers and products) is a big priority for you. 

Please be aware to apply for this role you must have a Cat C+E (Class 1) licence.
