We are pleased to announce that we are looking to recruit a number of staff to work at our new London distribution centre in Greenford (UB6). We are looking for like-minded people who will bring experience and enthusiasm to strengthen and develop our business.

Initially we are looking for two full time LGV drivers and one part time LGV driver who will be responsible for multi drop deliveries within the M25 and wider southeast region. We are also recruiting one full time LGV driver/coordinator to ensure the smooth running of the centre. All contacts will be for a fixed term of up to 18 months.

Suma trucks

We need reliable, customer-focussed people who are able to use their initiative, to ensure that our customers get their orders on time. Specifically we are looking for people with previous London multi drop experience and a can do attitude.

If you have warehouse skills, a forklift licence, or previous coordination experience these would also be useful. Flexibility and being able to manage your own workload are also skills that we look for.
