As a Tesco LGV Driver, you’ll be the face of your Distribution Centre – and not just for the people you meet out on the road.

  • Professionally representing the Tesco brand whilst on UK roads
  • Ensuring our products reach our stores on time and in good condition 
  • Being out on the road but also working closely with colleagues and representing Tesco to everyone you meet
  • Driving safely, responsibly and within the law
  • Collecting as well as delivering, supporting your distribution centre by moving trailers and keeping vehicles fuelled

You will need

  • To be passionate about delivering great customer service
  • Friendly, approachable and reliable
  • Able to adhere to the GB Domestic Driving rules
  • Able to adapt to working in a fast paced ever changing environment
  • Calm under pressure
  • Full LGV / HGV (C+E) UK/ EU licence currently with no more than six penalty points and the new driver card

About us

Working in Distribution. 

A store is only as good as the stock on its shelves. It’s essential that our distribution network is as good as it can be, because anything less than perfect means unhappy customers.

Fortunately, as leaders in logistics management, we are up to the task. Using the latest technology, we transport 60 million cases of goods to 3,000 stores every week.
