Van driver assistant – Cannock, Birmingham

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 Cannock 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 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 is a fantastic opportunity for individuals wanting to progress as we’re all about growing our own talent. We will provide training and development to progress you through to a category C license.

A bit about the role

You’ll be delivering food and non-food products to our customers in multiple locations throughout the day. The route can vary on a day-to-day basis but there will also be regular customers, meaning there’s a good mix of both variety and familiarity, which our drivers appreciate.

This role will cover 5 days out of 6. This means that you will work some Saturdays, but not all. This is worked on a rota basis with our other drivers.

A bit about you

You’ll possess a Category B licence. You’ll also 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.

What we can offer you

    • 25 days holiday
    • Subsidised canteen
    • Free parking
    • Exclusive range of over 4,000 high street discounts
    • Personal accident insurance
    • Healthcare cash plan
