The Recipe

Are you a class 1 Trunker Driver on top of your game?

Working alongside the Distribution teams you’ll drive in one of the most professional fleets in the country. Our vehicles have state-of the art telematics, sat nav and tracking systems. Our teams are dedicated to ensuring our depots are ready to deliver great quality and freshness to millions of people every day.

Join us and be proud to be heading in the right direction.

Key Accountabilities and Measures

So here it is, as one of our drivers you’ll:

  • You’ll be prepared to work a variety of shifts on a weekly rotating basis. On the flip side you’ll never stay away from home
  • Enjoy plenty of autonomy. As a driver you’ll be given your delivery notes and your route for the day will then be loaded into your on-board computer – and you’re off!
  • You’ll work set contracted hours on an 11 week rolling rota, starting between 0500 and 0700, all of which will hopefully help you to plan your life around work more easily.
  • Be supported with a 6-week induction, support from in-house driver training teams and fully funded Driver CPC. Your Driver CPC training is in work hours too, not outside of them.

Essential Ingredients

To join the Warburtons family, you’ll need a LGV Cat C+E driving licence with no more than 6 points. You’ll also have a good knowledge of transport legislation and tachographs, be reliable, responsible and used to working in a Trunking role.
