The role

39 Hours Per Week Monday to Friday.  This is a reserve role which means there will be a requirement to cover various shifts

Opportunity for guaranteed additional overtime of up to 3 hours per day.

As a Collection and Delivery Driver your day will typically start by planning your delivery route and carrying out safety checks on your vehicle. You will then collect and deliver parcels both to households and businesses. You may be driving at peak hours and should be able to lift and carry parcels weighing up to 30kg. 

You will need the following;

  • A full UK manual driving licence (in your current UK address), with no more than 6 penalty points is essential but ideally a clean licence is preferred, please note you will be required to show this at assessment.
  • Your driving licence must cover vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes as you’d be driving a long wheel-base Transit type van.

You will receive a starting basic salary of £19,961 per annum based on a full time 39 hour week which will increase to £22,007 per annum on successful completion of a 6 month probationary period. With overtime, you would have the opportunity to significantly increase your earnings. Some flexibility will therefore be needed.

We are an inclusive employer with equality, diversity and fairness at the heart of our values. We welcome applications from individuals from all different backgrounds and are committed to promoting fair participation and equality of opportunity for all our job applicants.
