Based in a large distribution warehouse, my client is looking for certificated FLT Reach Drivers due to business growth and expansion. This is an exciting time to join a growing company. In return you'll receive a competitive salary, company pension scheme, ongoing training and development and great chances for progression. Our client is a leading player with excellent reputation in food distribution. They are currently looking to add stock handling staff to their chilled distribution facility. We have numerous roles across a variety of shifts for FLT drivers.

Our client is the leading time-critical distributor - they provide the essential link between food manufacturers and Blue Chip supermarkets. They work across chilled, deep chill, ambient and frozen, picking around 3.3 million cases per week and delivering around 130,000 pallets of food & drink products into UK grocery retailers each week. They do this through skilled professional staff, who enjoy great training, internal promotion and an inclusive culture.

What is this site like? This is a port based distribution hub with a portfolio of impressive blue chip supermarket clients. It's a site that is incredibly fast paced and still relatively new. There are plans for further expansion and volumes will be increasing.
