We're looking for dedicated, enthusiastic drivers over the festive period to earn a little extra and make sure we stay number one for same-day deliveries.
You'll be collecting orders from our stores and making sure customers get them bang on time. It's about working quickly and efficiently while using your initiative, but it's just as much about delivering a bit of cheer too. You'll go the extra mile for each and every customer to make sure they enjoy the festive season and treat our in-store teams with the same holly-jolly cheer. When you're not driving you'll be helping out in our stock room or on the shop floor.
To help you give your very best, we'll kit you out with a Mercedes Sprinter Van complete with advanced routing technology. Oh, and seeing as you're part of the Sainsbury's group, you're entitled to an exciting range of benefits and discounts. What's more, you'll get 22 days' holiday allowance pro rata and a company pension.
Depending on our available opportunities, you'll also have the chance to stay on after the season's over – perfect if you want to develop your career or find something longer term.
We're looking for friendly faces who can deal with all sorts of people. You'll be flexible with different shift patterns and – surprise, surprise – driving for long periods of time. That means having at least one year's driving experience, no more than six points on your licence and plenty of confidence driving our vans.
(Please note: This vacancy may close early if we receive a high volume of applications.)
We know that candidates may be put off applying for a job unless they can tick every box. We also know that sometimes your availability may not fit the exact schedule we're advertising, and while we can't accommodate every flexible working request we are happy to be asked. So if you are excited about working with us and think you can do much of what we are looking for but aren't sure if you are 100% there yet… why not apply and see how it goes?
