The Recipe:

As ‘Britain’s Best Loved Food Brand’ we have been baking bread since 1876.  Today, we are proudly a fifth generation family company supplying 18,500 retail customers from 12 bakeries and 15 depots, producing a range of over 70 products including gluten and wheat free.  Our family of 4,500 colleagues throughout the UK, have recognised us as a Sunday Times Top Best Big Companies’ to work for over a number of years.

 So here it is, as one of our drivers you’ll:

  • You’ll be prepared to work a variety of shifts on a weekly rotating basis. On the flip side you’ll never stay away from home

  • Enjoy plenty of autonomy. As a driver you’ll be given your delivery notes and your route for the day will then be loaded into your on-board computer – and you’re off!

  • You’ll work set contracted hours and have stable shift patterns.  That’s 48 hours a week, working a rotating 5 days including weekends, although a typical week can be less than that. All of which will hopefully help you to plan your life around work more easily.

  • Be supported with a 6-week induction, support from in-house driver training teams and fully funded Driver CPC. Your Driver CPC training is in work hours too, not outside of them.


Essential Ingredients:

To join the Warburtons family, you’ll need a LGV Cat C+E driving licence with no more than 6 points. You’ll also have a good knowledge of transport legislation and tachographs, be reliable, responsible and used to working in a Trunking role.

Extra Dough

At last and by no means yeast you will want to know what your breads worth.

  • Family time is important to us and we know it will be to you, so you'll start on 5 weeks holiday

  • A slice of the annual profits

  • Award winning pension plan

  • Real progression opportunities, from Team Managers upwards

  • Discount vouchers and products you’ll love

  • Benefits for you and the family for example; Discounted gym membership, Child care vouchers, Ride to work
