Class 1 HGV Driver

Pets At Home are moving! In 2023 we are moving to Redhill, Stafford. With a Brand-New state of the art distribution centre. We have opportunities for HGV(C+E) Drivers to join our busy and expanding Transport team in Stafford

At Pets at Home, we’re committed to making sure pets and their owners get the very best advice, care and products. It’s what’s driven our success. As we continue to grow, so does the demand for our pet care supplies. That’s why we’re expanding our teams. 
Join us, and you’ll see that we’re not any old distribution centre. We want to be the best pet care company in the world. And that starts with our colleagues. 
Excellent service calls for high personal standards amongst the whole team. You'll be a careful and considerate driver who's willing to go the extra mile both on and off the roads. You'll be naturally friendly, helpful and want to get stuck in, working with your team to deliver great results.

We were voted 5th in the Great Place to Work UK Best Workplaces Large Category 2018 and we were put there by our people who like how much fun it is work here, how much opportunity there is for personal growth and how we all like to give something back.
We offer some great rewards for your hard work, including generous holiday allowances (including an extra day on your birthday!) you can save for your future with our pension scheme, or save today with a 20% in store discount, plus extra discounts on days out, cinema tickets and much more!
