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 Store Delivery Driver and you’ll be part of delivering exceptional customer service & ensuring our customers receive their deliveries in excellent condition, on time - every time.
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 in our 3.5 ton vans range from a tin of paint to 30 packs of flooring, so you'll be comfortable with some heavy lifting & play an important part in helping our customers create a home they’ll love. Along with mutli-drop orders to customers 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 3.5 ton van, training and all the kit you’ll need to do the job. You’ll need a manual UK driving licence (Category B/B1 which covers you to drive up to 3.5T vehicles), that you’ve held for at least a year with no more than 6 points. Previous experience as a multi-drop 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.
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! We also provide generous breaks to make sure you’re refreshed and able to perform at your best. So dependent on the duration of your shift and eligible break entitlement, we will pay you for the time you are on your break, so put your feet up on us!
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.
