- Due to Health and Safety, this role requires you to have held a full UK driving license for more than 1 year.
- If you are applying for a vacancy on a flexible contract, this operates on the principle of you informing us upon interview your availability to work within an agreed 'window'. This will form part of your contract and your hours can be adjusted each week to meet the changing needs of the business.
Providing an excellent home shopping experience by putting our customers at the heart of everything we do is our main responsibility.
Before you leave the store or centre you'll:
- Load the van where required, and check your van for roadworthiness
- Understand the schedule and route that has been calculated for you
- Look the part in your uniform, ready to help our customers
- Drive safely, responsibly and within the law
- Be courteous to all road users
- Serve your customer with a smile and greet them by name
- Take care of your customer's deliveries as if they were your own
The role is hands on, physical and full of variety. No two shifts are ever the same - customers look for help in all kinds of different ways.
For most of the day you'll feel like your own boss, delivering to your customers on your own, but with a team of managers and colleagues back at base ready to support you when you need them.

- Have had a full UK / EU / EEA driving licence for at least 12 months with no more than 3 penalty points
