  • Job Description
  • Why join MEP Hire? Firstly, we are a specialist market leading rental company in the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, & commercial fit-out sectors. But more than that we are big enough to matter but definitely small enough to care. Whether it be customers, suppliers, or our own colleagues, we want to make the difference.

     

    We aspire to be a business with the right ethos – a balance between delivering outstanding service to customers whilst creating value for our stakeholders including our employees.

     

    Do you want to make a difference and be part of a successful and growing specialist business and be at the heart of our next period of growth?  If you do, we look forward to hearing from you and if your application is successful look forward to working with you to create an even bigger and better business.

     

    As a division of Vp plc, a group of 6 specialist hire businesses, MEP Hire, hire mechanical, electrical and plumbing equipment alongside the low level access machines.

    As a Driver/Branch Assistant, you will be accountable for the delivery, demonstration and collection of equipment to and from customers, suppliers and other Vp businesses professionally, safely and on time. 

    The role requires an effective communicator who can work both independently and as part of a team, and who can alert the line manager to new sites and potential new customers. You will carry out vehicle checks every morning prior to your collections/deliveries which involves checking water and oil levels, and making sure the tyres have the legal tread depth. Ensure that the vehicle is always loaded safely and in line with company procedures, and make sure the company vehicles are driven safely and in accordance with UK law at all times.

    This is a very diverse role where candidates for this position must have local knowledge of the area and are flexible in their working hours. We are looking for someone who is IT literate with a full UK C1 driving licence. Knowledge of the hire industry is desirable but not essential. Due to the nature of the technology we use, experience using tablets and other electronic devices is desirable.

    Key Requirements:

    • C1 driving licence - 7.5 tonne vehicles
    • CPC
    • Digital tachograph
