  • Collecting as well as delivering, supporting your distribution centre by moving trailers and keeping vehicles fuelled

You will need:

  • To be passionate about delivering great customer service
  • Friendly, approachable and reliable
  • Able to adhere to the GB Domestic Driving rules
  • Able to adapt to working in a fast paced ever changing environment
  • Calm under pressure
  • Full HGV (C+E) UK/ EU licence currently with no more than six penalty points, the new driver card and you’ll need to be at least 21 years of age

As a HGV Driver at Tesco we offer excellent benefits and rewards.

You will enjoy:

  • Colleague Discount Card (including a 2nd card for a family member) after 6 months service with 10% off most purchases at Tesco

  • Life  Assurance - 5 x contractual pay
  • Share Schemes – Join ‘Buy As You Earn’ after 3 months, and ‘Save As You Earn’ after 1 year
  • Career development opportunities
