We believe anyone can improve their home to make life better. Every day, we give our millions of customers the ideas, advice, tools and confidence they need to create a home they’ll love. Join us as a Delivery Driver and you’ll be a big part of this.

Key responsibilities

We have over 300 B&Q Stores, our Digital Hub Stores are the largest in the estate and deliver locally to our customers’ homes. Deliveries range from a tin of paint to 30 packs of flooring, so you’ll play an important part in helping our customers create a home they’ll love. Along with delivering customer orders to their homes you will also fulfill customer orders from our shopfloor using new technology and learning new ways of working. Efficiency and safety will be vital of course, but importantly, you’ll represent our B&Q brand, putting customers first, everywhere you go.

Required skills & experience

A great communicator who can think clearly and make sound plans no matter how busy things get, you’ll feel right at home with us. You’re an organised and analytical thinker, and you know how to keep things simple.  We’ll supply the van, training and all the kit you’ll need to do the job. You’ll need a manual UK driving licence that you’ve held for at least a year with no more than 6 points. Previous experience as a delivery driver is useful, but not essential. You’re flexible enough to work on a rota that includes weekends, evenings and bank holidays. 

To keep everybody safe and reassure our customers, if you're successful in this role, we carry out checks through Experian with the DVLA to verify the information you've given us. As well as this, we also do a DBS check (Disclosure and Barring Service). Any discrepancies will be discussed directly with you.

Career progression

What's in it for me?

As well as a competitive salary, our benefits package includes an award-winning pension scheme, ShareSave options, 6.6 weeks holiday, payroll giving, an Employee Assistance Programme, shopping discounts, colleague wellbeing benefits and lots more!

As part of a great team, you’ll be supported to grow and encouraged to explore new career directions within the business and the wider group. And, because you’ll be inspiring great things for our customers and the whole business, you’ll do work worth caring about.

We want to ensure that all employees, future employees and applicants to all Kingfisher companies are treated equally regardless of age, gender, marital or civil partnership status, colour, ethnic or national origin, culture, religious belief, philosophical belief, political opinion, disability, gender identity, gender expression or sexual orientation.

Developing in role

Learning never stops at B&Q. Whether you've been in your role for one day or five years, there's always something to be curious about. It's why we're always creating learning opportunities and experiences that'll give you the chance to develop your skills. Like our First Line Manager programme: a course that helps our newest line managers build their confidence and management skills. Or our Leadership Development programme that challenges our more experienced leaders to reflect on and adapt their approach for our ever-evolving ways of working.

Building expertise and know-how

We believe anyone can learn the technical skills to do their job with excellence. It's all about attitude and behaviour here. So, if you're passionate about customer service and design, we'll teach you how to create beautiful kitchens. If you're someone who loves being outdoors, we'll help you learn about our garden ranges. And, if you're someone who just loves what we do but doesn't know where to start, we'll help you find the perfect role for you to grow into. 

Accelerated Development Talent Programmes

Whatever goal you're working to at B&Q, we want to help you get there. We do this by designing a number of programmes which help you to practice your skills and learn new ones, gain valuable experiences, learn from others and jump on opportunities that are right for you. From leaders taking their first steps into management to those simply looking for a new challenge, we're there to make sure you achieve your ambitions.

Induction

At B&Q, we want every new colleague to understand our values, our customers, and how we work together to achieve our purpose. That’s why we’ve designed an induction programme that’ll give you real insight into our business, our culture and help you feel included from day one. For your first few weeks on the job you’ll work with your team and line manager, mixing online learning with practical tasks, to grow your knowledge a little every day.
