Additional Information

Still not sure if this role is for you? See a testimonial from one of our current Branch Managers below!

“A branch supervisor position with JDP is certainly never dull and has many challenges, every single day!   Whether it is organising a delivery to a remote hill farm in some far flung corner of the country or delivering goods to a building site on busy residential street in the city, planning routes is an essential part of the job. 

Every day is different and that's what I look forward to. 

There is certainly plenty to do in a typical days work. Let’s start right at the beginning... opening up the branch first thing in the morning, ready for the early bird customers to come flooding in through the gates, then there is calculating the sales and takings from the previous days sales, making sure deliveries are loaded and tickets despatched for the drivers before the trucks hit the road for another busy day. As the day goes on there will be deliveries of goods coming into the branch, all of which need checked and booked into stock, oh and then there are customers to help, serve or load all day long! Never a dull moment!”
