We’re looking for LGV drivers to join our team in Biggleswade.
At Co-op, driving is about more than just getting our products from A to B. You’ll be the face of our logistics operation, interacting with Co-op colleagues and customers every day.
It’s not your usual ‘stuck-in-a-jam’ driving job, and Co-op isn’t a ‘run-of-the-mill’ employer. We’ll give you real work/life balance – your week will be based around 40 hours, worked over 5 days, with the opportunity to work additional hours to top up your pay packet.

• positively represent Co-op on the road, treating other road users and pedestrians with respect
• support our shunting operations, moving both rigids and trailers around the yard – training will be provided
This role would suit people who have
• a C+E category (Class 1) LGV drivers’ licence
• previous experience as an LGV/HGV driver
• the ability to work positively with Co-op customers and colleagues
• great organisation and time management skills
As an LGV driver at Co-op you’ll get be responsible for delivering a service that’s valuable to our customers, communities and our society. You’ll also get a package and benefits including…
• a competitive salary
• weekend and unsociable hours allowances
• great holiday allowance (rising in line with service)
• discounts on Co-op products and services
• a pension with up to 10% employer contributions
Building an inclusive work environment
We’re actively building diverse teams and we welcome applications from everyone. We want to build an inclusive environment, where everyone can contribute their best work and develop to their full potential.
As an LGV driver at Co-op you’ll get a manager who listens to you, and works with you to protect your wellbeing. You’ll also be part of a depot team that works together to celebrate difference, and gives colleagues a say on the day to day things that affect them at work.
We can make reasonable adjustments to our interview process if you have specific needs. You can find out more about Co-op people policies at coop.co.uk/peoplepolicies.
