Driver Hire is recruiting for a Full Time Van Driver (Cat B) for one of the largest dairies in the country. This is a night time job. Our client needs a van driver to work 6 nights per week. Sunday night to Friday night.
May I respectfully repeat that this is a Full Time, Permanent job. It is not just to cover the coronavirus lockdown period. Please only apply if you really want to be a milk delivery driver as a career.
The role involves delivering a range of chilled and fresh foodstuffs including milk, yoghurt, cream and so on to houses throughout the Hampshire and Surrey region. You will be equally at home driving a van in both town and country environments.
Full training given, over a 10 week period. At the end of this you will be comfortable doing 250 to 300 drops per night. Great training. Our client promises customers that all deliveries will be on the doorstep by 7am, so they do not want you to fail. Lots of on-going help, advice and training.
You will need to be physically fit, and able to walk several miles a night and confident to work alone.
Great salary of £27,680 to reflect work 6 nights per week.
The successful candidate will ideally have previous night time and delivery experience.
