 About the Role

Driver Hire Doncaster currently hold an excellent opportunity based out of the DN8 postcode.

The driver will be responsible for the safe delivery of furniture for domestic orders. The nature of the work can be quite physical and because of this, the role is an assisted role, with a drivers mate to support with the loading and unloading of the vehicle. This is to ensure all deliveries are made safely. Daily vehicle checks will also fall under the responsibility of the driver and a good understanding of drivers hours will be essential.

The pairing will be responsible for around 12 drops per day (on average) and shifts will begin from the depot at 7am. Routes will be dependent on the volume of orders.

The role may develop into a temp-to-perm position for the right driver. As a temp-to-perm role, you will complete 12 weeks of work as an agency worker for Driver Hire Doncaster and after 12 successful weeks of work, you will then be offered a permanent position within the clients company.

An ideal driver will have experience in a similar role and will have excellent customer facing skills when representing the company.

With orders increasing, the client are now looking for drivers to support them to meet demand.
