LGV Category C Driver
Competitive Salary Depending on Experience + Excellent Benefits
We are a leading wholesale food distributor covering the whole of the UK, the preferred supplier for over 60,000 customers and our business is still growing.
About the role:
This is not a lonely, long-distance driving role. You will be delivering great food and other catering products to a huge range of customers across your region. From restaurants and pubs to schools, care homes, and hospitals, you will be helping the country return to normality whilst still helping those in need.
Our vehicles are all kitted out with the latest tech, including telematics, but you will have to use plenty of initiative to find the drop off points. Once there, you will be delivering the goods straight to the chefs and managers who make the orders – so building up a good rapport with them is important.
You will also be the one transferring the goods from your lorry to the customer – on cages stacked with pallets. Some orders can be large, so it is a job with a real physical element. Health and safety are our top priority and so we will ensure you’ll have all the latest training and PPE you will need to carry out these responsibilities safely.
A bit about you:
You will be efficient and organised; you need to enjoy the challenge of being given a lorry full of goods and getting it to the right people at the right time. Personality is key. You will interact with the customers at every drop off – so you will need to enjoy meeting them and doing all you can to make their life easier. Plus, you need to able to move cages and pallets that can be heavy.
Qualifications-wise, you need:
- Category C LGV License.
- Your digital tachograph driver card and
- Your Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC), or be willing to train for it.
We’ll pay for ongoing CPC development to help you keep these qualifications up to date.
What is in it for you:
You will be home every night. It is 5 shifts in 7 days model, but most of your shifts will fall Monday to Friday, with occasional Saturday working. There is also the opportunity for overtime.
As well as a competitive salary, other benefits include:
- 33 days holiday p/a
- Healthcare cash plan
- Personal accident scheme
- Employee discounts (4,000 high street discounts)
