Driver Assistant (FTC) – Gateshead

About us

Bidfood is a great place to work and we have two permanent opportunities for Driver Assistants to become part of the transport department in our Birmingham depot.

We’re a leading wholesale food distributor covering the whole of the UK, the preferred supply partner for over 60,000 customers and our business is still growing. Birmingham is one of the largest depots within the Northern region of Bidvest Foodservice and the transport team forms an essential part of the depot in delivering excellent customer service.

What does this mean for you?

It means you can expect an excellent working environment, stability, fantastic development opportunities, and a great salary and benefits package.

We value all our employees and over half of our workforce have more than 5 years service!

And our drivers say: “The best thing about working for Bidvest Foodservice is being on the road and working with a fantastic customer base!”

A bit about the role

You’ll be assisting with the delivery of food and non-food products to our customers in multiple locations throughout the day. This involves assisting the Driver to ensure all paperwork is filled in correctly and all customers sign for their goods. You will comply with all relevant legislation in food safety and chill chain standards and ensure that the fridge is set to the correct temperature for the job being done. You will have responsibility of all company property that is under your charge and collect all empty equipment from the customer. The route can vary on a day-to-day basis and helps to keep the role fresh and exciting!

This role will cover 5 days out of 7. This means that you will work some Saturdays, but not all. This is worked on a rota basis throughout the team.

A bit about you

Ideally, you will have food warehousing and distribution experience but this is not essential, we are more interested in candidates who are enthusiastic and committed and demonstrate that they have an accurate and methodical approach to their work. You’ll enjoy a challenge and care about helping our customers succeed, taking pride in being the face of our company to so many people every day.
