Manpower is hiring a permanent Van Driver for our fantastic client, offering brand new facilities, kit, and a chance to be a part of a growing company making a difference!

As a van driver, you'll be on a mission to transport new cooking oil and exchange those empty containers. It's a hands-on role where you make an impact.

You'll be visiting the shops we want to work with, with a quick & friendly drop-in to hand over informative leaflets. It's a chance to make a memorable impression and foster those crucial partnerships. So, even when you're not behind the wheel, you're still making a significant impact!

  • Delivering fresh oil to the catering / restaurant trade and collecting used cooking oil.
  • Pre-trip inspection of the vehicle to ensure that it is in proper working order and complies with safety regulations.
  • Regular maintenance of the vehicle to ensure it remains in proper working order, and reporting any mechanical issues to the appropriate personnel.
  • Driving the vehicle in a safe and efficient manner, while adhering to traffic laws and complying with all safety regulations and procedures while operating the vehicle.
  • Safely Loading and unloading of cargo and ensuring it is secured according to safety regulations.
  • Making/taking payment for oil and the maintenance and accuracy of cash/pre-paid cards.
  • Communicating with dispatch and customers to provide updates on delivery times and any issues that arise during transport.
  • Accurate recording of information following Oil delivery and / or collection, eg completion of Waste Transfer Notes
  • Reporting of missed or failed deliveries on a daily basis to Microsite Manager.
  • Build and maintain good relationships with customers and prospective customers, assisting with sales efforts when required.

What we'll need from you:

  • A Driving Licence and a clean driving record.
  • Experience of Driving a Van's in the UK with exceptional knowledge of UK roadways, laws, and regulations (Minimum 6 Months)
  • Excellent Communication skills and be able to effectively communicate with the Transport Office, customers, and other drivers on the road.
  • Be professional in your demeanour, appearance, and conduct
  • Strong customer service orientation and a willingness to engage with customers positively is essential
  • Experience of business-to-business sales generation and achievement of targets as part of a wider driving role is desirable (but not essential).
  • Awareness of safety regulations relating to driving a vehicle and health and safety in the workplace.
  • Ability to problem solve and be able to demonstrate examples as to when they have handled unexpected situations.
  • A high level of attention to detail due to the nature of checking documents.
  • You should have a strong work ethic, be reliable and flexible in your schedule, as the job may require you to work long hours, nights, weekends, and holidays.

Free On-Site Parking: Enjoy the convenience of free on-site parking, and for those eco-warriors, we've even got electric charging available depending on where you are based!
Time Off That Counts: You'll have a generous allocation of 25 days of paid leave plus 8 bank holidays to make the most of your well-deserved time off.
Wanting to Upgrade? For anyone who is looking to upskill there's an exciting opportunity after you have passed your probation to upskill to a 7.5-tonne driver. Your future is full of possibilities.

Please be aware a basic DBS check will be completed during the recruitment process!
