  • Driving company vehicles safely and efficiently
  • Using your initiative to ensure that there is little room for error and customer's receive goods as expected
  • Interacting with the customer effectively when delivering goods
  • Acting as an ambassador for the business always, actively demonstrating the core company values through everything you do

The successful candidate will have/be:
