xtrastaff is a fast paced highly professional driving and industrial specialist recruitment agency, with branches based in various areas of the UK. We are currently recruiting 25 + 7.5 tonne drivers to work on a temporary contract for one of our most prestigious high end retail clients, The John Lewis Partnership.

Successful candidates will be part of a two-person crew responsible for delivering household goods, including but not limited to the following;

• Beds

• Furniture

• White goods (washing machines, fridge freezers, dish washers, etc.)

The role consists of making up to 25 home delivery drops per day, and therefore all applicants must possess outstanding customer service and communication skills as regular customer contact is a key element.

John Lewis operates using planned work rotas. Shifts are a minimum of 5 days per week, either Monday to Friday or Tuesday to Saturday, and the shift patterns are 6am to 2pm or 2pm to 10pm. However all drivers must be flexible regarding their working hours. As well as numerous shift premiums (subject to shift times), staff will receive excellent rates of pay between £9.00 and £12.75 per hour, which will then be paid weekly.

Each driver will undertake a driving assessment, manual handling induction, and customer service training. Additional up skilling and free training will also be provided where required. Furthermore all staff members will be provided with company uniform and the appropriate PPE.

Although initial positions are on a temporary based contract, there are opportunities for permanent roles to be offered to those who prove they are capable of taking on these duties over a longer period of time.
