Love 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.
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 be fully licensed to drive but we will ensure you are coached in driving our delivery vans and also trained to deliver great service to our customers. And you’ll have guaranteed hours, so you can plan your life around work. When you’re not out on the road, you’ll help out in the store.
