Temporary Delivery Driver

Looking for a temporary driving role which could become a permanent career? This is a 6-month driving contract delivering essential packages to people across your community. Make sure these packages get where they need to be, when they need to be there, and you could have the option to extend your contract. Because when you put on a UPS uniform and drive one of our instantly recognisable brown vehicles, you're responsible for delivering our brand too. That means going the extra mile all day, every day.

You're comfortable planning and prioritising. But you can think on your feet too. So whatever the job demands, you'll be ready for it, look the part and know what it takes to play it well. If you can do this, our training will help drive your potential as far as it can take you.
