Sales Assistant/Relief LGV Driver, St Austell

Full Time
Job Description

Bradfords Building Supplies Ltd is a leading independent builders’ merchant based across the South West of England.  We know our success is built on our people and we are hugely proud to have recently been awarded Best Independent Merchant at the recent Builders Merchant Awards in recognition of our ability to provide a first class, innovative service.

This is an exciting time to join us; in 2020 we will be celebrating our 250th anniversary and we are continuing to develop our business to meet the varied needs and demands of our people, our customers and our suppliers. 

Our branch in St Austell now has a vacancy for a Sales Assistant. As part of the role you will also be the branch’s relief LGV Driver, providing cover when our regular drivers are absent from the branch. As such, it is essential that you have a Class 2 LGV license. In our business, we know that no two days are the same; we are always busy and by multi-skilling you, we can guarantee a lot of variety in your role.

Your strong customer service and communication skills will help you as you deal with customers, helping them in our Yard, loading and unloading lorries as well as serving on our Trade Counter.  We are looking for people who have the drive and desire to learn additional skills and provide valuable support to the branch.  Knowledge and experience can open up further opportunities in our business and we want to support that.

Experience of working in a similar sales environment, along with a valid forklift licence would be great but it’s not essential.  We are more interested in your positive, can-do attitude and your ability to build effective relationships.

When you join us, along with a competitive basic salary and bonus scheme, you will also get access to an excellent range of additional benefits.  


If you believe we are the type of company you want to work for, we would love to hear from you! Please send your CV and covering letter to
