Blue Arrow are working in partnership with the Co-op logistics depots who deliver the products their customers love.
We are hiring professional LGV drivers, Both Class 1 and Class 2 drivers who have an important role to play in making sure Co-op stores always have the right products at the right times for their customers. Our Dalcross Depot has opportunity to join the pool of colleagues to help support this service delivery operation.
Shift start times vary between: 01:00 to 06:00, mainly nightshift with some dayshift trunk runs and shunter shifts.
Our depot operates 24 hours per day / 7 days per week including weekends and bank holidays so it is essential that you are flexible.
You will be delivering products to national supermarkets and convenience stores. Products will be in cages so cage manoeuvring is required, it is therefore essential that applicants can carry out these duties.
Unusually, your time is split between two key areas - professional driving together with loading and unloading deliveries. So it's a lot more physical than typical LGV Driver roles as only 40% of your time is actually spent driving.
When delivering goods to stores, you'll understand the need to optimise space and minimise any loss. You will need to work with store or warehouse colleagues, so safety (of our people, customers and products) is a big priority for you.

* Ownership for the safe and timely delivery of our customers' products
