Driver Team Leader - Sunbury
40 hours per week
£28,800 per annum including London Weighting
We make around 2,000 deliveries a week to customers from our hub in Sunbury.
It takes a lot of hard work to produce a veg box; from growing the vegetables ourselves, to packing the boxes at one of our farms. We need our drivers to make sure that the same level of care and attention is given 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 and therefore customer service will be key. You will lead by example, demonstrating what first class customer service looks like to your team.
In this role, 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, helping drivers achieve their objective of ensuring customers 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 be based in the hub completing administrative tasks to support the Area Delivery Manager, and therefore basic IT skills will be required. However, there will be a requirement to also perform deliveries to support the driving team as and when necessary
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 based out of our hub in Sunbury; Ashford Ind Est, Shield Road, Ashford, Middlesex, TW15 1AU. However, the hubs in Enfield and Bromley will be covered too.
