_Various shifts patterns available, with 1-hour flexibility required each side of your start time _

We're looking for LGV drivers to join our team in Biggleswade.

At Co-op, driving is about more than just getting our products from A to B. You'll be the face of our logistics operation, interacting with Co-op colleagues and customers every day.

It's not your usual 'stuck-in-a-jam' driving job, and Co-op isn't a 'run-of-the-mill' employer. We'll give you real work/life balance - your week will be based around 40 hours, worked over 5 days, with the opportunity to work additional hours to top up your pay packet.

You'll have a rota, so that you know when you're working well ahead of time. And at the end of your shift, you'll always get to go home (no tramping here!).

Your working week will be varied - delivering to our stores and depots across the East of England and the Home Counties. You'll help us to serve communities in both urban and rural areas.

What you'll do

• provide an efficient and supportive delivery service to our stores
• deliver caged stock to stores or other depots in a safe, professional, and cost-effective way
• drive safely, obeying the rules of the road and following the correct Co-op procedures
• positively represent Co-op on the road, treating other road users and pedestrians with respect
• support our shunting operations, moving both rigids and trailers around the yard - training will be provided

This role would suit people who have

• a C+E category (Class 1) LGV drivers' licence
• previous experience as an LGV/HGV driver
• the ability to work positively with Co-op customers and colleagues
• great organisation and time management skills

Why Co-op?

As an LGV driver at Co-op you'll get be responsible for delivering a service that's valuable to our customers, communities and our society. You'll also get a package and benefits including

• a competitive salary
• weekend and unsociable hours allowances
• great holiday allowance (rising in line with service)
• discounts on Co-op products and services
• a pension with up to 10% employer contributions

Building an inclusive work environment

We're actively building diverse teams and we welcome applications from everyone. We want to build an inclusive environment, where everyone can contribute their best work and develop to their full potential.

As an LGV driver at Co-op you'll get a manager who listens to you, and works with you to protect your wellbeing. You'll also be part of a depot team that works together to celebrate difference, and gives colleagues a say on the day to day things that affect them at work.

We can make reasonable adjustments to our interview process if you have specific needs. You can find out more about Co-op people policies at

_ Earning potential of up to £40,965 based on working an average of 48 hours per week (40hr basic + 8hr overtime) _

_Shift allowances: £2.31 per hour weekend shift allowance and £1.24 per hour unsociable (7pm-3am) shift allowance _

_ One hour flexibility each side of the 'ordinary' start time provided to you. For example - if your 'ordinary' start time is 06:00, then for most shifts you'll start at 06:00, however, on occasion, you may be scheduled to start a shift up to a maximum of 60 minutes earlier or later than your 'ordinary' start time. _
