The department and team

All of our meals are prepared by chefs in our own Trowbridge kitchen and can cater for a wide variety of tastes, ethnicities and dietary requirements
The service that we provide is much more than simply providing a hot meal; we provide a 'safe & well-being check' and have a rigorous process of reporting of any illnesses and unforeseen circumstances that we might come across. We will even wait with a customer until a relative or ambulance attends the scene.
A passion for supporting vulnerable people, together with a great attitude towards customer service is essential for this role.
You will support the Driver Supervisor in being responsible for the Contract and will have input into the financial performance, health & safety, client liaison, recruitment, training and development of your team.
The ideal candidate should be inspirational, challenge the norm and not be afraid to think big!
