Delivery Driver based in Spitalfields
The Hummingbird Bakery, the home of American baking, our success does not simply rest on the deliciousness of our cakes or the ambiance of our bakeries; it rests on the dedication of our staff. We rely on our brilliant delivery drivers to bring the taste of authentic American baking to our customers, ensuring our cakes arrive in one piece and looking as beautiful and fresh as the moment they left our bakeries. They will be delivering a little slice of joy and happiness with every order that goes out and they will need to remember that the deliveries in their van are special occasions waiting to happen for our customers. Our new driver will go the extra mile to insist that the cakes our bakers have crafted with care arrive promptly at their correct address. As an ambassador for The Hummingbird Bakery, our driver will need to be courteous, friendly and professional at all times and will be an enthusiastic representative of our company and its values.
