At John Lewis & Partners, we pride ourselves on the high quality of products that we have both in-store and online. None of this would be possible without our trusted LGV Drivers who ensure that our products are transported safely from our distribution centres to branches and customer delivery hubs across the UK.
We have exciting opportunities for LGV Drivers to join us at our two distribution centres at Magna Park in Milton Keynes and Brackmills in Northampton. Discover more about an LGV role at John Lewis & Partners and see if you’re a good fit for us in our interactive video below:
Getting our goods from our warehouses to our stores and customers is without doubt one of the most important parts of our business. And we have a variety of delivery vehicles driving up and down the country making sure it happens. You could bring your passion for driving and awareness of safety standards to one of our roles.
You’ll be responsible for distributing our range of products across the country. A typical day includes looking over the relevant paperwork, ensuring your vehicle is fit for the roads and acting as an ambassador for the John Lewis Partnership while out making deliveries.
You’ll need an LGV C+E driving licence (with a maximum of 6 points) to drive our highly recognisable lorries and deliver goods from our various distribution centres to our stores all over the UK. You’ll also need a Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) qualification and a valid digital tachograph card.
We’ll expect you to go the extra mile, from completing deliveries within a specific timescale to always acting in a professional and approachable manner. You’ll interact with many people at different points in your journey, whether it’s at a branch or with the general public, so you should be an open, warm and friendly individual.
We offer a range of roles, whether you’re looking for part-time or full-time work, or perhaps even seasonal or temporary work. Please check individual job descriptions to find the specified hours for each role, or you can set up a job alert to be notified about specific LGV driving opportunities.
You’ll be given the tools and guidance you need to flourish at the Partnership. If you have the skills and traits that we’re looking for then we’ll provide first-class training and development to allow you to be the best you can be. We look for potential rather than past experience, so you should be able to show us that you have what it takes to succeed.
Over time, some of our LGV drivers have progressed into management roles if this is the path you wish to take. You may also decide that you want to explore other areas of the business, such as Distribution and Warehouse or becoming a Customer Delivery Driver.
In our distribution centres, you’ll find a drivers rest room where you can relax and play darts and foosball. There’s also a Partner Dining Room where you can enjoy meals throughout the day. In terms of the wider business, you’ll become a co-owner which means you’ll receive industry-leading benefits such as generous in-store discounts, subsidised stays at our 5* hotels and an annual Partnership bonus. Discover the full range of benefits that you’ll receive.
You’ll find a wide range of temporary, permanent, full time and part time LGV Driver jobs available throughout the UK.
