The department and team
You will be working on a zero hour contract / casual contract with a dual responsibility - consisting of delivery driving as well as work in the cold store and providing holiday cover for other members of the team.
You will need to work as part of the wider team always looking to help out the office team and drivers and we encourage movement between teams to provide flexibility, personal development and an understanding of the whole business. The ultimate goal is to provide a service to our customer that exceeds expectations while at the same time continuously improving efficiencies.
Our drivers are the face of our business and their interaction with our customers is crucial to our success. As such you must genuinely enjoy meeting people and exceeding customer service standards, and always be willing to go above and beyond what is expected.
The cold store runs at a chilly -20 degrees centigrade but don’t worry, protective clothing designed to deal with this temperature will be provided along with breaks to warm up and have a hot drink when necessary.
