Driver Supervisor - Part time

The Company

Our community meals service delivers hot meals to some of society's most vulnerable adults.

We have contracts throughout the country that offer a seven day a week food service solution for this client base.  

All of our meals are prepared by chefs in our own Trowbridge kitchen and can cater for a wide variety of tastes, ethnicities and dietary requirements and are delivered frozen ready for regeneration at your site.

 

The service that we provide is much more than simply providing a hot meal; we provide a 'safe & well-being check' and have a rigorous process of reporting of any illnesses and unforeseen circumstances that we might come across.

We will even wait with a customer until a relative or ambulance attends the scene.
