IT Literate: Candidates must be IT literate and able to use a smartphone for completing the deliveries and collections on.

Communication Skills: People management skills are also beneficial due to the challenging nature of delivery to construction sites in sometimes limited time slots.

We deliver to construction sites across England and so you will repeatedly lift and move weighty, bulky items, safely, and carefully over a range of surfaces throughout your working day.

You will also be delivering to sites within London and other major cities, so will be dealing with all that city traffic entails, alongside a delivery schedule that is in line with the demanding time constraints that our customers expect from us.

• We are looking for candidates with a positive, can-do attitude who understand the importance of providing our customers with a first-rate hire experience.
• *If you have no specific delivery driving experience but have worked in a company where excellent customer service is part of the culture, then please do reach out as full training can be offered.

WHAT WILL YOU GET IN RETURN?


• A competitive, market leading salary
• Recharge with 25 Days Holidays and Bank Holidays on top
• Weekends free
• Potential Participation in Growth By Sharing bonus scheme
• Looking after your future with a Company Pension

NO ORDINARY WORKPLACE

I started working for THX in August 2021. I really enjoy my job, don’t get me wrong it’s hard work but for sure the pros outweigh any negatives. My colleagues are great, and everyone is supportive! There are many benefits with working for THX including getting weekends off which is valuable as I can see my beloved football team

LEARN MORE ABOUT BEING A CUSTOMER DELIVERY OPERATIVE

  • It is an early start but if you are a bit of an early bird then it will suit you down to the ground. And, a Greggs Breakfast always helps! Don’t forget, weekends and bank holidays are yours as this is a Mon-Fri position.
  • It is a physically active role. Loading and offloading tools and equipment on-sites is physical work. But you’re out in the fresh air, and not tied to a desk.
  • We can’t control the traffic. Heavy traffic can be frustrating and mean sometimes you may get back late; however, you will get paid overtime.
  • The job can be challenging, but we have a fantastic support team, and excellent processes in place to ensure your day is as efficient and productive as possible
