HGV Driver – (Class 1)

Posted 15 September 2020

Salary : £23,888
Job Type :
Location :

Our Drivers are pretty special. We count on them to achieve fantastic levels of service as they deliver our goods to stores all over the region. We’re constantly striving to achieve an efficient and co-operative working environment, and Drivers play an enormous part 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% of the time is actually spent driving. You’ll understand the need to optimise space and minimise any loss. And, 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.

We couldn’t operate without you, so we’ll pay for your Driver Certificates of Professional Competence (CPC). Other companies might expect you to do the training in your own time, but we don’t. We’ll make sure you have that time in your working hours.

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