Class C Driver – Greenford UB6

With the Southeast becoming increasingly busy for us, and our plans for Christmas 2017 already taking shape, we need to strengthen our London driving team.

 We currently have a vacancy for a fulltime driver, initially on an 18month fixed contract. We may also consider part time workers depending on availability.

You will mainly be delivering within the M25 with occasional deliveries out into Kent, or down to the South coast which may involve a night out. We predominantly work Monday to Friday with occasional Saturday work as required.

Based in Greenford, our drivers deliver a mix of ambient, chilled and frozen product to a diverse customer base, with a normal day starting at around 4.00. You will be doing up to 20 deliveries daily, and completing all relevant paperwork.

We need all applicants to hold a class C LGV licence and full driver CPC. You should also be confident with all relevant drivers hours legislation.

We always look for applicants who are outgoing, and able to offer great customer service. Suma pays all workers the same hourly rate of £15.60 hour.

Applications must be on our application form, attached below. Please send to personnel@suma.coop
