The role of a Driver

As a Driver, you will be delivering building materials to building sites and homes, as well as re-loading your vehicle back at the branch and completing regular vehicle checks.Brentwood offers both same day and next day delivery which means efficiency and accuracy are both important skills for this role.

You’ll need a Class 2 licence and a Driver Qualification Card, but what we really value most is personality and work ethic. We are looking for a Driver who is able to communicate with both staff and customers alike in a friendly and professional manner. The role of a Driver is critical to the branch performance, so if you’re a team player and happy to get stuck in then we’d love to hear from you.

We are happy to discuss the possibility of working flexibly. Please talk to us during the interview process about what works for you. We can’t promise to give you exactly what you want, but we do promise not to judge you for asking.
