As the face of Tesco out on the road, we deliver from Lands’ End to John O’Groats. Our Customer Delivery Drivers get the opportunity to meet and talk to different customers in their homes every day. That’s why this role is about much more than just driving: it’s about helping others and delivering great service, with a smile.

Its hands-on, physical, and full of variety. No two shifts are ever the same and our customers look for help in all kinds of different ways. For most of the day, you’ll feel like your own boss, delivering to your customers but there is always a team of Managers and colleagues back at base ready to support you when you need them.

So whether you are looking for flexibility to suit your current lifestyle, job stability or an opportunity to change career direction everyone is welcome at Tesco.

You will be responsible for it.
