Driver

Full Time, Permanent
Harrogate
Posted 5 months ago

My client is a market leader in the refurbished IT hardware sector. They have 16 years of success behind them, revenues over £50 million, and locations in the UK, USA, Australia, New Zealand, France & Germany. Their increase in headcount has averaged over 23% for the last three years, and they’re one of the fastest growing companies within their industry. In 2021 alone, numerous awards were achieved, which is a reflection of their dedicated teams, including the Queen’s Award for international trade.

My client are committed to providing you with an environment where you can progress and succeed in, with continuous training programmes.

Due to their operational expansion, they now have an opportunity to recruit a Driver within their Operations team.

 

The Role:

My client have a very busy warehouse in Harrogate in which they process incoming deliveries, test and refurbish used parts, and put together orders large and small for packing and shipping. There’s always a lot of activity as they often have a quick stock turnaround: and they often get requests to make same-day deliveries or pickups.

The are now looking for a new full-time member of staff to fill a dual role: driving and helping out in their warehouse. Typical requests for assistance in their warehouse will come from Goods In, Goods Out, and Test and Technical departments.

Sometimes you’ll be delivering one part across town for a quick requirement and sometimes you’ll be collecting pallets from the other end of the country!

You will need to be flexible and available to make trips outside of the typical 9-6 working day. You really need to like driving and have experience of driving for a living: you’ll be in charge of a 3.5 ton vehicles carrying valuable and sometimes urgent goods across the country.

As you’ll be my clients representative when making deliveries and collections from their customers and suppliers, they are looking for a presentable, down to earth, confident kind of person who is at ease speaking to other professionals. You don’t need to be built like a brick but you do have to be fit because this kind of work is demanding and physical.
