Job Description

Be part of the team behind a safe, successful yard with development to become one of our valued drivers.
  • Join an industry leader and work with quality building materials   
  • Bring your talents to a team that strives to be the best  
  • Get fantastic experience and opportunities with a Top UK employer
At Travis Perkins we pride ourselves on being a great place to work. We’re a top employer that looks after our people and empowers them to look after our business and our loyal customer base.

Joining our family as a Yard Customer Assistant, you’ll help customers choose from a huge range of high quality products including timber and bricks. 

You’ll be trained in our ways of working to fulfil orders. The key thing is to be helpful and friendly – the perfect assistant for customers that you’ll likely get to know by name. When they’ve made their choice, you’ll help them make the purchase, fetching the goods with a forklift if necessary. Safety is a priority and you’ll make sure that standards never slip.

Dependant on successfully passing your probation period, we will put you onto our 12 month Driver Apprenticeship programme which will support you to gain your Category C License and see you moving into a driver position within the branch. Over the 12 month period, you’ll spend time with our existing drivers, and attend workshops delivered by our experienced apprenticeships team so you can build all of the skills, knowledge and behaviour needed to be a really great driver within our business.

The kind of person we need:  
  • Isn’t afraid of hard work or going the extra mile
  • Will give nothing less than first‐class customer service
  • Loves being part of a friendly, motivated team
  • Is always willing to learn
  • Has a forklift licence (or happy to train for this)
  • Hold a full, clean driving license
  • Must be aged 21+ for driving insurance purposes

In return, you’ll have every opportunity to drive your career forward within a large and expanding business with deep local roots and strong family values.
