Job DescriptionLove life on the road? Then you’ll have a great time behind the wheel, delivering our customers’ online orders. Being a Driver at Sainsbury’s is a job that promises real variety and the opportunity get out there and meet customers. It’s a hands-on role where you’ll make things happen at pace. Plus, you’ll be on our all-new Winning Team, where you can really be the difference.
Being a Sainsbury’s Driver isn’t just about delivering goods on time and in great condition. It’s about being yourself, offering a friendly approach and a service that will really wow our customers. We’ll expect you to make every delivery a great experience, always doing the right thing for our customers and keeping them aware of any delays, so they ask us to drop their shopping off again and again.
You’ll receive full training, and you’ll have guaranteed hours, so you can plan ahead. When you’re not out on the road, you’ll help out as one of our Online Assistants. This is about being really tuned in to picking out the best quality produce and putting together our customers’ orders, ready for delivery.
You must be aged at least 18 years or over and held a UK/EU manual driving licence for at least 12 months (with no more than 6 points on your licence). You must also have experience of driving a 3.5 tonne vehicle within the last three years or have a currently active Approved Driving Instructor (ADI) qualification. We'll ask you to complete an online driving risk assessment as part of your interview and, if you are successful, there will be a driving assessment when you join us.
As well as competitive pay and guaranteed hours, you’ll have a van to drive, we’ll arrange insurance and pay for your fuel. Plus, there are lots of other great benefits to being on our Winning Team, including:
• A season ticket loan after you’ve completed 12 weeks of service and passed your probation.
• A discount card after 12 weeks that gives you 10% off your Sainsbury’s shopping, 10% off at Argos and 25% discount at Habitat.
