Vehicle washer – Lee Mill

There’s every chance you’ll have eaten our food, so why not share our success and come and work for us? Bidfood is a leading wholesale food distributor and the preferred supplier for over 60,000 customers across the UK, ranging from pubs to schools, from restaurants to care homes and everything in between.

From Lands End to John O’Groats, whether our customers want just a teaspoon or a full range of catering supplies, we’ll supply their needs. We work as a team to provide every food option from quality ingredients to finished meals, including a number of own brand ranges as well as all the big brands and regional specialities. We believe in our food, and we know that our people behind the scenes are so very important in our success.

At Bidfood, we recognise that the quality of our transport teams is instrumental to our success.

Your primary task will be to make sure that all of our delivery vehicles are clean, both inside and out, to comply with food safety standards, hygiene regulations and that they are looking their best, promoting the image of the business as they travel around the country.

You will also need to maintain cleaning records, reporting to the Compliance Supervisor and Transport Manager.

Effective teamwork within the transport department will be key to ensuring the vehicles are cleaned and records kept. You will also need to deal with drivers on a daily basis to make sure that any spillages in vehicles are dealt with in a timely manner.

As the role requires a LGV Cat C licence (HGV2), there will also, on occasion be the need to drive our vehicles to assist other drivers making deliveries and to our vehicle service centre for essential maintenance. There will also be the opportunity to drive a trunk vehicle for collections at other depots. Pay will be adjusted accordingly if this work is carried out.

Shift pattern will be primarily Tues-Fri 12:00 – 20:00, Sat 09:00-17:00, after initial induction and training although contracted hours may change due to business needs, therefore a flexible approach to work is required.


25 days holiday excl bank holidays, healthcare cash plan, childcare vouchers, personal accident scheme, employee discounts.


If this is you, we look forward to hearing from you!

To apply, please forward your application along with the reference SC/1442 to: Richard Hill, Transport Manager at Lee Mill, Central Avenue, Lee Mill Industrial Estate Ivybridge, PL21 9EW. Email:
