Firstly who are we?

We are the country's leading pub retailer and brewer, running over 3,000 pubs, restaurants and hotels in towns, villages and city-centre high streets across England, Wales and Scotland.

What is Brewing & Brands?

We work behind the scenes to guarantee the smooth operation of our pubs, restaurants, hotels and breweries. With around 44,000 people all across the UK who rely on us for guidance and support. Making sure we deliver this to a business as large and fast-paced as Greene King isn't always easy, but with the right attitude and an unyielding commitment to our customers, anything is possible.

We pull together to get things done and work hard to motivate and support each other to do well as one team. We believe in celebrating successes and recognising others for what we do, ask any one of our employees and they will say they are proud to be part of Greene King.

The role

The role

Our Driver/Dray Crew are essential to the safe delivery of stock to our customers' premises in a range of different driving
and unloading environments. You are responsible for checking the safety and presentation of the vehicle at all times, adhering at all times to relevant driving legislation and good driving practice. You will need a class C driving licence and evidence of appropriate Driver CPC training.

You will be working in a two person team with a dedicated member of the Dray Crew, completing a multi-drop route of up to 10 tonnes of wine, spirits and beer, so you will need to be fit, agile and able to follow our strict instructions for the safe movement of heavy items.

You support our customers to receive their stock effectively by loading and unloading in an organised manner, being mindful of the impact of our delivery vehicle in that setting and also on any adjacent businesses or residents. Stock is offloaded into a location agreed with the customer and may involve taking stock down into a cellar, into the bar area of a pub or into an outside storage shed.

You need to be adaptable, flexible and responsive to a range of different customer requirements whilst being able to adhere to a planned delivery schedule. You need to be able to communicate effectively with the warehouse teams, your Dray Crew member and our customers. You also need to be able to raise concerns or suggestions for improvement in a positive and professional manner.

We operate a customer focused business and you will be representing our business to the customers so you will need to be flexible, adaptable and willing to change your work patterns to suit the business when required to do so.

What can we offer you?

  • Competitive salary
  • 33% Greene King Discount (for all managed pubs including Local Pubs and brands such as Hungry Horse, Eating Inn, Old English Inns and Loch Fyne)
  • Wide range of employee benefits (pension, dental, share save, free refreshments, on site cafe)
  • Excellent Training and Career Progression opportunities
  • 25 days holiday each year (Not including bank holidays). Role dependent
