Driver Team Leader - Peterborough

Department: Driving
Closing date:

We make around 25,000 deliveries a week to customers in Central England, delivering from hubs based across the country.

It takes a lot of hard work to produce a veg box; from growing the vegetables, to packing the boxes at one of our farms. We need our drivers to give the same level of care and attention to delivery, ensuring our customers receive their items in perfect condition and as promptly as possible. Our drivers are very much the face of Riverford, so customer service is key! You will lead by example, demonstrating what first class customer service looks like to your team.

You will be responsible for a small team of drivers across 1-3 hubs, offering leadership and technical expertise to make sure that orders are delivered safely, and that your team build great relationships with their customers. This is a hands-on role, which will require an amount of relief work, enabling customers to receive their orders smoothly all year round, as well as spending time out with drivers offering feedback and support. You will ideally have experience of multi drop driving and feel able to support the technical skills and behaviours required of a great driver.

This role will have a significant amount of time on the road, however there will be an element of time based in the hub office completing administrative tasks to support the Area Delivery Manager, and therefore basic IT skills will be required.

This is a permanent contract, 5 days a week (usually Monday-Friday). Flexibility is required as start and finish times will vary, and occasional weekends may be required. The role will be primarily based out of out of our farm in Peterborough, Sacrewell Lodge Farm, Thornhaugh, PE8 6HJ however occasional travel to other hubs around the country may be required.
