Want to be a warehouse operative?
Pick the right job off the shelf
Our operatives are essential to our business – without them we wouldn’t be able to deliver to all of our customers across the UK. Join them and be part of our team helping to rebuild the nation.
This is very much a team role – you’ll be working either days, evenings and/or nightshifts to get the orders ready for our drivers to deliver the goods to our customers. Your role is to pick and load customer orders for essential food products, and check-off orders. It will be up to you to make sure things are accurate and well-presented to avoid incorrect picks and damaged stock, so being numerate and having good attention to detail is going to be essential.
We will give you a uniform and a headset so you can be easily guided by our voice-controlled system for customer orders as you move around the warehouse, and we will make sure you have the right equipment and PPE to be comfortable working in the three different temperature zones: ambient, chilled, and frozen.
What you’ll need
Ideally, you’ll have some experience of working in a food warehouse and perhaps even a reach truck or FLT licence – but it’s not essential. More importantly, you’ll be a team-player and a hard-worker, who understands the importance of following health and safety rules. The job has a real physical element to it as you’ll be picking and stacking food and non food items can weigh up to 20kg on every shift.
We won’t throw you in at the deep end. We’ll train you on the systems we use, show you round our tech, make sure you’re up-to-date with your Health and Safety training and run you through the things you need to know. And if you want to progress, we’ll give you the training you need to do that too, through our ‘Warehouse to Wheels’ scheme, for example. In fact, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to do more here if you want to.
We really invest in our people. From excellent training and long-term job stability, through to healthcare and wellbeing support, to 33 days paid ’ holiday, a pension and an exclusive range of over 4,000 high street discounts, you’ll find that there’s much more to take home here than the great salary. That’s why people stay and have a career with us.
