Retail Driver

Did you know that Birmingham St Mary’s and John Taylor Hospices have merged to form the Hospice Charity Partnership?  Together we are on an exciting journey to deliver equitable end of life and palliative care to more people across the Greater Birmingham area and to help us achieve our vision, we’re looking for an enthusiastic Retail Driver to join our team.

Reporting to the Retail Operations Manager, you will be responsible for supporting our team in providing a house clearance service, responsible for PAT testing donated electrical items (after training) and assistance to our furniture shop (in Cotteridge) as and when required. In doing so you will help Retail achieve its income budgets by providing the day to day operations to the highest standard, providing excellent customer service to both donors & customers.

A full, clean driving licence and the flexibility and ability to travel to any of our shops or potential donor’s houses using hospice commercial vehicles is essential in this new role. You will assist the Central Operations Manager to ensure that the wider retail department is effectively staffed by covering sick leave, annual leave and supporting staff absence for the existing retail drivers, sometimes at short notice.

Our retail operation is a community based shopping experience with 20 successful shops in our portfolio, that are of the highest standard and are vibrant, inspiring and value for money.

The successful candidate will be passionate, organised and outgoing, and motivated by our mission to put our values are at the heart of everything we do, supporting our vision of creating a future where everyone with a life-limiting illness can have the best experience of living.

Please note we do not hold a sponsors license and cannot support visa applications.
