Van driving jobs in Milton Keynes available now for those with standard full UK driving licence or higher and the motivation, flexibility and enthusiasm to become an integral part of the world-renowned Parcelforce Worldwide logistical team as a Van Driver (Multi Drop Driver).
Parcelforce Worldwide prides itself on delivering more than just packages. From birthday presents to vital business information, the logistics team are prepared to go the extra mile for their customers putting the effort in to make sure their services are as good as they can be.
As a Van Driver (collection and delivery) based out of the Milton Keynes depot, you will be working independently to collect and deliver parcels to households and businesses throughout the local area so local knowledge would be an advantage. Your working hours will be 7 am to 5 pm Monday to Friday but you may need to be flexible and willing to work the occasional Saturday if needed.
The Parcelforce Milton Keynes mail centre is situated in the Caldecotte area, close to Caldecotte Lake. The location is supported by excellent transport links so you should find that travelling to work via car or public transport is easy.
You will be responsible for planning your route at the start of every shift providing you with the opportunity to work with efficiency and autonomy to complete your collections and deliveries your way, simply driving the route, scanning parcels on and off route while interacting with customers, providing the excellent levels of customer service that we expect of our postal services.
You must hold a full UK driving licence permitting 3.5 and/or 7.5 tonne (Category C1) vehicles to be considered for this position. A clean licence is preferred but drivers with up to 6 penalty points will be considered.
Aside from the required driving qualifications there are a few other things that will ensure you are great fit for this job:
· Positive Attitude: You do need to have a passion for driving, even when it is busy out on the roads, lots of traffic and long queues can make even the bubbliest of us a little grumpy so a happy, positive attitude will go a long way.
· People Skills: As a Van Driver (Multi Drop Driver), you have the chance to make someone's day, every day - whether it is delivering a letter from friend, the latest gadget to an eagerly waiting customer, a smile to someone
who needs it, a carefully chosen gift to be wrapped in a bow, or just a few friendly words of hello, when you work for the postal service you are delivering more than just the post.
· Physically Fit: This interactive, customer focused door to door service will require you to lift and carry parcels weighing up to 30kg so do take a moment to consider the physical aspects of this role.
· Team Work: Many hands make lighter work so we must all be willing to pull together as a team ensuring that each and every parcel gets to where it needs to be, when it needs to be there, no matter what it takes.
Role Requirements
· Full valid UK driving licence permitting 3.5 and/or 7.5 tonne (Category C1) vehicles.
· Less than 6 penalty points on your licence (ideally a clean licence is preferred).
· Willing to complete a criminality check (essential).
We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
