We want all of our Partners to have a good work-life balance and we support flexible working. This might mean flexible or compressed hours, job sharing or shorter hour contracts, where it is possible to do so. Please discuss this further with the hiring manager during your interview.
Working in Partnership for a happier world – our shared Purpose that guides us in everything we do and inspires 3 important principles; happier people, happier business, happier world. The John Lewis Partnership is a truly unique business, one that seeks to make a positive difference to the lives of everyone.
Duties and Responsibilities:
Due to the delivery/handling/selling of age restricted items, applicants must be 18 years or over to apply.
You’ll be the friendly face of our business – the helpful driver who delivers the unique blend of Waitrose quality and outstanding service right to our customers’ doors. When you’re not out and about you’ll be at the store, assisting with things like stock control and cashiering, which may involve lifting heavy products.
This is a really important ‘front line’ role. You represent us with every single customer you meet, and their impression of Waitrose is down to you. So, as well as having a flexible approach and the ability to use your initiative to deal with unexpected situations, you should be passionate about providing the very highest levels of customer service.
A good appreciation of health & safety is a must too, along with excellent driving skills – and we will ask you to take a driving assessment as part of your application.
Required essential experience skills and qualifications:
You will need a full valid UK manual driving licence with no more than six points – and you should be 18 years old or over. Part of the application process will include a licence check and a security check to confirm your suitability for the role.
Required desirable experience skills and qualifications:
Previous experience in a driving role and a knowledge of chilled vehicles would both be welcomed.
As a Partner you will enjoy our unique benefits package, including staff discount, subsidised food in Partner dining rooms, discounts in local restaurants, subsidised learning, access to exclusive Partnership hotels and so much more. Free on-shift meals in the Partner Dining room (October-December only).
Please consider the following when making your application:
- We occasionally close vacancies early in the event we receive a high volume of applications. Therefore, we recommend you apply early
- Print off the job description now if you require it
