Shunter/Driver – Lee Mill

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 Lee Mill 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.

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 Shunter Driver will help you keep fit as you’ll be working in the yard, moving vehicles and stock to assist the night loading operation.

We value all our employees and over half of our workforce has 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!”

A bit about the role

As part of a team of four shunters, you’ll be moving vehicles onto and off the loading bays, preparing them for loading, monitoring temperatures and also assisting with loading. Along with Shunters, you will also be driving our nightly trunk vehicles to collect other goods from our sister depot in Chepstow, using a Class 2 Truck or Class 1 Wagon and Drag.

This role will cover 5 days out of 6, contracted to Sun-Thurs. This means that you will have the opportunity to work some Fridays as overtime, but not all. This is worked on a rota basis with other members of the team.

A bit about you

You’ll possess a Category C+E LGV Licence. You’ll also enjoy a challenge and care about making sure the vehicles are ready for the day shift Drivers to carry out their deliveries.
