As the VegBox scheme continues to grow, we are looking for reliable and enthusiastic multi-drop delivery drivers, with or without their own vehicle, to deliver our VegBoxes to customers throughout South London and the Surrey Borders. 

You will begin your day at the farm in Wallington, arriving promptly to pick up bags of fresh farm-grown veg carefully packed by volunteers and staff. You will load between 30-60 VegBox orders into your delivery vehicle and using a pre-planned route, will deliver to home addresses and collection points. You will take care to ensure our veggies get to their destination in the best possible condition and in a timely manner. Sometimes you may have to follow special instructions where customers are not available to take receipt of their VegBox, and you will be happy to engage with customers.

Your own vehicle will need to be big enough to carry at least 30 bags. Suitable vehicles include estate cars and small SUVs, or small/medium vans. You will be required to supply documentation that shows:

  • Your right to work in the UK (e.g. passport)
  • Vehicle insurance (including for business use)
  • UK Drivers license

To be able to drive one of our farm vehicles, for example in the event of a cover shift, for insurance reasons you must:

  • Be over 25
  • Have a full, clean UK license
  • Have at least 1 year’s driving experience
