Multi-Drop Van Driver (Nights)
You may not have heard of us, but we’re sure you’ve tried our products because we supply food for the all the major supermarkets in the UK.
Our vast direct-to-store (DTS) distribution network, comprising of 18 depots nationwide, enables us to make over 11,500 daily deliveries of our own chilled and frozen produce and that of third parties.
What you'll be doing
From the simple sandwich to a range of chilled foods, our customers need fresh stock daily and you could be part of our nationwide team making some of those 3.5 million deliveries each year and keeping Britain fed.
The shift time is roughly 18:00pm - 02:30am and you will be required to work 5 days from 6. You will always have Saturday nights off, and your second rest day will be rolling and will move on a day each week. This means that every 5 weeks you will get a long weekend off (Fri,Sat,Sun)!
Our drivers will arrive to work at 6pm, and then break down their ambient, chilled and frozen stock into route order. Van checks will then need to be completed and once at the correct temperature, the van will need to be loaded.
When out on the road, drivers will be asked to remain vigilant as they are out at night and will need to always keep a lone-worker device on them.
Drivers will need to unlock the store front doors and place deliveries into fridge/freezers before locking up the store again.
Once deliveries are completed, drivers will return to depot, unload all empty trays, complete a debrief with management and then clock out.
On-the-job training is provided and you will be partnered up with another team member to start with. If you are keen to progress, Greencore can also offer development opportunities to further your career.
