Harefield Gazette - - NEWS - By Nathan Spen­de­low

AN ONLINE su­per­mar­ket has an­nounced plans to cre­ate 200 new jobs in Hilling­don.

Ocado un­veiled a new 56,947sq-ft de­liv­ery hub in Stock­ley Close, due to be opened in Oc­to­ber.

The site will be home to around 90 of Ocado’s brightly-coloured green vans and the su­per­mar­ket is now re­cruit­ing driv­ers on a per­ma­nent ba­sis to de­liver shop­ping to cus­tomers’ homes through­out the week.

Di­rec­tor of HR Julie Markey said: “As we con­tinue to ex­pand our busi­ness in Greater Lon­don, we’re ex­cited to an­nounce the open­ing of our new­est de­liv­ery hub in Hilling­don.

“The site at Stock­ley Close is per­fectly lo­cated for serv­ing our cus­tomers who live in the south-west Lon­don area and we’re now on the hunt for 200 en­thu­si­as­tic, cus­tomer ser­vice fo­cused new driv­ers to join the team.”

Cur­rent Ocado driver Christo­pher An­drews said: “I joined Ocado to make the most of my cus­tomer ser­vice skills and I take a lot of pride in each de­liv­ery I make.

“Since join­ing two years ago, I’ve been given var­i­ous op­por­tu­ni­ties to de­velop my skills.

“In par­tic­u­lar, I was de­lighted to be pro­moted to my role as trainer, al­low­ing me to use my coach­ing skills, which I re­ally en­joy.

“I also regularly buddy up with new re­cruits to show them the ropes and I feel like I’m re­ally mak­ing a dif­fer­ence.”
