£1200 welcome payment to be paid in six £200 instalments over the first six ‘four-weekly' pay days for new HGV Driver colleagues. Terms and Conditions apply.

Plus £2000 new starter bonus available. Terms and Conditions apply. 

To be employed in this role you must hold a HGV Class 1 Licence and have no more than six points on your licence. 

About the Role

Our driving team has an important front-line role in maintaining our success and reputation. Without our daily store deliveries we wouldn't be able to fill our shelves with ‘extra special' products for our customers. This role is of course about safe driving, but it's also about delivering excellent customer service to our stores!

You'll be responsible for:

  • Carrying out driver checks before you start the engine.
  • Carrying out at least two runs over each shift, often to different stores.
  • Helping with loading and unloading your vehicle and any other work that needs carrying out – including cleaning your vehicle and trailer.
  • Carrying out deliveries in the most efficient way possible – our regional planning team are working hard behind the scenes to ensure our routes are scheduled in the most efficient way possible.
  • Delivering on time, but always safely, making sure our reputation for excellence includes driving!

About You

Excellent service calls for high personal standards amongst the whole team. You'll be a careful and considerate driver who's willing to go the extra mile both on and off the roads. You'll be naturally friendly, helpful and want to get stuck in, working with your team to deliver great results.

Your Benefits

Alongside a competitive salary, you'll get lots of other great benefits too, including 10% off your Asda shopping, incentive schemes, a pension scheme, bonus scheme and discounts across a range of services and activities, from airport parking to theme parks and cinemas.
