Driver – Penrith

About us

The chances are you’ll have eaten our food, so why not share our success and come and work for us? We’re a great company to work for and we have permanent opportunities for drivers to become part of the transport department in our Penrith depot.

We’re a leading wholesale food distributor covering the whole of the UK, the preferred supplier for over 60,000 customers and our business is still growing.

This is an exciting time to be joining our team in Penrith, as we have recently increased our presence in the North of England by opening a new depot in Penrith where we plan to service our current Customers and increase our service offering in this area. We believe making this move will help us to continue to achieve our mission to deliver service excellence, make life easier and help our customers to grow.

What does this mean for you?

It means you can expect an excellent working environment, job security, fantastic development opportunities, and a great salary and benefits package. Not only this, but being a multi-drop role, it will help you keep fit as you’re often out of the cab, meeting customers, and being the face of our business to so many people. Our customers rely on you to feed their customers so the arrival of our lorry is always a welcome sight.

We value all our employees and over half of our workforce have more than 5 years’ service! Our drivers say: “The best thing about working for Bidfood is being on the road and working with a fantastic customer base!”

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 with our other drivers.
