Who are we?

A pioneer of organic home delivery, Abel & Cole is a brand famous for seasonal organic fruit & veg. Since 1988 we’ve built close relationships with other brilliant organic pioneers in order to deliver a wide range of fantastic organic food to people’s homes across much of England. We represent a refreshing alternative to supermarket shopping, but without being worthy or preachy. No air freight, no silly packaging, no nasty chemicals – just great food produced by people who really love what they do. We deliver to around 40,000 households and we employ nearly 600 great people. We consider ourselves bold, irreverent, genuine, friendly and honest, and it is crucial that this comes across in everything we do.

Here’s what we are looking for:

  • The ability to start work early in the morning, from 4.30am (there’s no weekend work!).
  • Full European category “B” driving license.
  • Mature and professional driving skills.
  • Excellent interpersonal skills relating to colleagues, customers and the public.
  • Experience in customer service.
  • Basic vehicle maintenance skills at driver level.
  • An interest in Organics and a proactive attitude towards the care of our environment.
  • Experience making multi drop deliveries would be great but this is not essential – full training will be provided.

What we offer

  • This is a full-time position – best of all, the role is Monday – Friday (no weekends!).
  • 28 days inclusive of bank holidays running from the 1st May to 30th April.
  • A free box of fruit and veg every week (It’s pretty delicious!) alongside company discount of up to 35%.
  • Cycle to Work Scheme.
  • Grants for sport, performing arts, education and non-vocational courses.
