Cover Driver - Leeds Bread Co-op

Type of job: 
part time
About the Job: 

We are currently looking for someone to join our team on a casual basis to cover delivery shifts when our regular drivers are on leave. We are looking for someone who is ready and available to start training as soon as possible.

You must be 25 or over and have a full, preferably clean driving licence which you have held for at least two years (for insurance purposes). We’re looking for someone who is comfortable with, and has experience of, driving medium-sized vans and who has the flexibility to provide cover at short-notice. Our delivery shifts run from 4.30am until around midday and we deliver in Leeds and the surrounding areas Monday-Saturday.  The number of cover shifts available will vary depending on why cover is required, for example, we may know in advance that we need to cover several shifts when someone is on holiday or we may need to cover a day of illness at short-notice. Our cover drivers are generally able to pick up 2-3 shifts per month.

Wages are paid on the last day of the month and are £8.21 an hour (we have a flat wage structure – everyone at Leeds Bread Co-op gets paid the same hourly rate) plus a generous holiday entitlement. The post is flexible and offered on a casual basis – we email available shifts as soon as we know we have them asking drivers which they are interested and available for.
