Bidfood is a leading wholesale food distributor and the preferred supplier for over 60,000 customers across the UK, ranging from pubs to schools, from restaurants to care homes and everything in between.

From Lands End to John O’Groats, whether our customers want just a teaspoon or a full range of catering supplies, we’ll supply their needs. We work as a team to provide every food option from quality ingredients to finished meals, including a number of own brand ranges as well as all the big brands and regional specialities. We believe in our food, and we know that our people behind the scenes are so very important in our success.

Paddock Wood Depot is part of the South East region within the Wholesale Division. The P.I/Stock Control team forms an essential part of the depot by maintaining the accuracy of our stock by a system of Perpetual Inventory (PI),which involves counting, checking and updating the stock file.

As part of this team you will be responsible for ensuring the integrity and accuracy of the stock held at, and moving through the depot.

Duties will include undertaking daily PI counts, Hub and Spoke variance claim checks, Credit claim checks, preparing stock and paperwork for returns to supplier, checking and reporting on damaged stock, best before dates and stock rotation issues. Understanding and responding to the Quarantine notice procedure will form part of the role. You will play a key role in the annual stocktake.

You will need a keen eye for detail, and be able to demonstrate a good level of numeracy and literacy. Accuracy of counting and recording is a key requirement. You will be used to working to targets and you will have an accurate and methodical approach to your work. You will be a good team player who supports our company values. Knowledge of Food Hygiene and experience in a similar role are desirable but not essential.

If this is you, then we look forward to hearing from you.
