Joining our friendly and hardworking family as a Hire Fitter / Driver, you'll be on the front line dealing with our customers that have any queries or orders relating to tool hire.  As part of the branch team, you will play a vital role in our continued success, providing a first class service. You will need to be hands on and people focussed to be successful for this role. 

What will I be doing?

Not one day is the same as the next in TP branch life, but here are a few pointers:

  • Our success is built on strong relationships with our customers so it’s essential that you can help deliver the highest standards of service - the key thing is to be helpful and friendly at all times, you will likely get to know our customers on a first name basis.

  • You will have a mixture of internal and external work, ranging from testing tools and taking orders inside, to being outside with customers loading vehicles or even delivering their goods

  • Full training is provided in order to test and know how to use and give advice on our hire items

  • Will be driving the Tool hire vehicle to strengthen your knowledge of our business on this management course by really getting to see all aspects of the business

  • Safety is at the forefront of everything we do, your aim will be to ensure that our standards never slip, this means maintaining a tidy and safe working environment.

  • Driving licence is mandatory, held for a minimum of 12 months.


For this role you will be based in our Sale Travis Perkins branch. This is a fairly established branch with a lot of experience under its belt, however along with all the other new staff members for this branch, it is a perfect opportunity to get your foot in the door and really show what you are capable of. This will be a team of 12  including a full tool hire facility and 2 HGV vehicles. Given the range of experience within the branch as long as you have a passion for tools and the drive to work hard and learn then this is the job for you!  If you want to take the next step in your career - then apply today!!!


 My name is Natalie, and I currently work as part of the recruitment team here at Travis Perkins, but  I started off my career in my local branch when I was 18 completing a development programme, which I then became a Branch Supervisor. Let me tell you more about us, and why you should consider a career with our brilliant business.


Let’s be honest, no one grows up with a burning passion to work in a builders merchant (well, I know I certainly didn't!). I didn't really know what to expect, but since joining, I have been supported by an amazing team that have an unrivalled passion to provide an excellent level of service to our local customers (typically builders and tradespeople) and I’m now working in a completely different area of the business in an area that I love.


Travis Perkins have a tonne of benefits too:

  • 22 days annual leave, pension, bonus and staff discount (Including 20% off at Toolstation!)

  • Discounts at various retailers including Currys, Tesco, Boots, John Lewis + many more!

  • Travis Perkins is part of the Travis Perkins plc group. Our group has a number of different businesses under its umbrella meaning plenty of opportunity for internal movement and progression, it’s strongly encouraged here

  • Sociable working hours


I hope that you’re as excited about this role as I am, and that my first hand experience has provided a small insight into what we do here. Apply today, you won’t regret it!

We’re driving to become a truly inclusive employer. We want everyone to be at their best and it’s our ambition that everyone within our Group feels safe, welcome and confident to be their authentic selves.

*Applications currently open to candidates aged 18+

You be you, it makes us, us.
