Delivery Driver - Tool Hire.

We’re looking for a delivery driver to join our team at our east London depot in Leytonstone. This is a hands-on role and a great opportunity for someone with driving experience to start a career in the tool hire industry.

The Hireman is a growing business specialising in a range of construction support services, primarily hiring and delivering tools and equipment to professional contractors working in London and the Home Counties. We’ve been established for more than 30 years and we take pride in employing people who will go out of their way to help our customers.

This crucial role involves the delivery of tools and equipment to and from building sites in east, north east and north London. It’s ideal for someone who enjoys driving, working outside, being active and dealing face-to-face with customers.

To be considered for this role applicants must:

  • Be able to build relationships with customers
  • Work well as part of a team
  • Be experienced and confident driving a van in London
  • Have a good knowledge of London, particularly east, north east and north London
  • Be physically fit

There is a lot to learn, so support and training are provided every step of the way, and those displaying the necessary ability and commitment will have every opportunity to progress. We have an extremely successful track record of promoting from within, with some of our best supervisors, workshop fitters, hire desk controllers and managers having started their careers with us as drivers.

Benefits include a workplace pension scheme, complimentary drinks and snacks, company workwear, monthly prizes for top performers, regular social events, and a turkey at Christmas (or other seasonal gift).


  • A full manual driving licence. Applicants should be aware that the Company insurance stipulates that all drivers must be a minimum age of 21. The Company will however consider all applicants.

Holiday entitlement: 20 days paid annual holiday, plus bank holidays.

Hours: Monday to Friday 7.30am to 5.00pm. Occasional Saturday mornings as overtime.

Salary: £20,500 to £22,500 per annum depending on experience.

If you’re looking to start a career with a friendly, professional and ambitious family company, then we want to hear from you.

IMPORTANT: We will only consider your application if you send your CV and a covering letter describing a specific situation when you have gone out of your way to help someone.
