First Choice Foodservice operates its own fleet of over 20 vehicles. These range in size from 3.5 tonnes to Class 2 (a category C vehicle, or what is frequently referred to as a rigid).
Given the mileage and area our vehicles serve, it is important that they meet our aspirations for making the best impression on customers when deliveries are made. They are liveried vehicles and as such act as continuous mobile advertising units for the company and service we offer.
Not only do we expect the vehicles to be driven well and courteously, but the visual impression they make is very important to the way in which First Choice as a brand, is perceived. If we take good care of our vehicles it would be reasonable for a customer to assume that we are taking good care of the goods being delivered. It really is that simple.
Your role therefore is another very important part of overall brand message we want to deliver. And by keeping vehicles in good working order and presentable, this is a relatively easy way to convey this important message.
As with all roles within First Choice, your progression in the company needn’t stop at keeping up the appearances of our delivery fleet. Impress upon us your enthusiastic work ethic and who knows where it will take you?
We look forward to receiving your application and thank you for your interest in First Choice.
