Waitrose & Partners is all about enriched experiences and that goes for our people - our Partners - as much as our customers. We want you to enjoy your work and share your passion for food with our customers. So we'll train you, treat you respectfully and then reward you by giving you a share in the profits, for pulling it all together and being part of our success.
We are looking for someone who keeps up to date on food and drink trends, knows our products, takes pride in whatever they do, carrying out everything to the highest standards, making sure the shop floor is shipshape, ready for when our customers arrive. Whether they are shopping for a healthy lunch, a top up on fresh fruit and veg, the weekly shop or a special occasion, we want every customer to enjoy their shopping experience, confident in our products and confident in our Partners.
We request that candidates only apply for this position if you can fully commit to the advertised working hours and the full term of the contract, or we will be unable to proceed with your application. We occasionally close vacancies early in the event we receive a high volume of applications. Therefore, we recommend you apply early.
We have a number of different ways to work flexibly so at your interview feel free to talk about what flexibility means to you. There are no guarantees, however, it may open the door to not only a new role but a new way of working.
Duties & Responsibilities
You'll be the friendly face of our business - the helpful driver who delivers the unique blend of Waitrose quality and outstanding service right to our customers' doors. When you're not out and about you'll be at the store, assisting with things like stock control and cashiering, which may involve lifting heavy products.
This is a really important 'front line' role. You represent us with every single customer you meet, and their impression of Waitrose is down to you. So, as well as having a flexible approach and the ability to use your initiative to deal with unexpected situations, you should be passionate about providing the very highest levels of customer service.
A good appreciation of health & safety is a must too, along with excellent driving skills - and we will ask you to take a driving assessment as part of your application.
Required essential experience skills and qualifications
You will need a full valid UK manual driving licence with no more than six points - and you should be 18 years old or over. Part of the application process will include a licence check and a security check to confirm your suitability for the role.
Required desirable experience skills and qualifications
Previous experience in a driving role and a knowledge of chilled vehicles would both be welcomed.
