We are looking for drivers who can be flexible to meet our customers’ needs.
Looked after, fulfilled and inspired – it’s how being a Pharmacy Delivery and Collection Driver for Boots will make you feel.
The importance of your role
Pharmacy Delivery and Collection (PDC) Drivers deliver. At its simplest this means taking medication to our customers, picking up prescription forms from doctor’s surgeries and delivering them to our shops. But PDC Drivers deliver much more than this. As part of the PDC team you’ll deliver brilliant care to all of our customers every day. You’ll want to achieve the highest professional standards in the way you drive and the way you show up. You’ll be an ambassador for the Boots brand delivering this out into the community, interacting with customers who might otherwise never come into a Boots shop. You will be proud of what you do and be recognised as someone who makes a real difference to others lives.
What you’ll be doing day to day
You’ll be busy, constantly on the move between our stores and our customers. You’ll be provided with a vehicle that is fully maintained by Boots and all the training and kit you need to work safely and effectively. This includes a handheld device that provides pre-planned routing and sat nav. At times there will be challenges as the day unfolds; customers not at home; traffic jams; flat tyres, in addition to these , there is also a fair degree of heavy lifting especially when working with our monthly delivery schedule which can be quite demanding. You’ll get real satisfaction from knowing that you are part of a unique service and you’ll love doing a role that offers so much more than other driving jobs.
How will you do it?
This is more than just being a delivery driver. You will be handling important medication and ensuring it gets to where it’s needed. You’ll be taking it to some of the most vulnerable people in our society. You’ll know how important it is to make sure this is done carefully and safely. Customers know you; trust you and they will rely on you to make sure they get their medication when they need it.
What you’ll need to have
We’re looking for really great people, with a friendly personality. It’s all about working together as one great team – after all it’s our people that are at the heart of our business. You might have had a driving job before and we think that’s great, but we’re more interested in the real you, how you contribute to our team and how you show up for our customer.
