Branch Assistant / Van Driver. Cat B. Woking. £24,000 plus bonus. Full Time

Driver Hire is recruiting for a Full Time Branch Assistant.  You will be working all aspects of this retail plumbers’ merchant, as well as being the Van Driver (Cat B).  Our client needs you to work 5 days per week.  Monday to Friday.  Plus one Saturday morning in three.

It’s a really friendly, professional environment, where everyone helps each other.  You will be equally happy driving the van sometimes, but mostly working on site.  Duties are generally “behind the scenes.”  Helping to maintain the stock, accepting deliveries and putting everything away, getting orders ready for collection, adding stock to the computer system.  Even occasionally answering the phone or serving on the counter.

It’s refreshing to get this sort of variety in your working day.

Not too heavy, but double radiators do take some effort!   You will control, sell and deliver a range of plumbing components . . .  from taps and pipes, to baths and radiators.
