Warehouse Operative

We're after more help for our Warehouse, coping with increasing productivity as our business grows. It's a hands-on role in which doing the little things right make a big difference, so would suit someone who takes care their work while working hard to get things done on time. It's a very physical role that involves carrying and lifting, so you’ll need to be able to handle the loads while being comfortable on your feet for most of the day. Working both indoors and outdoors throughout the year - being ‘exposed to the elements’ - will not phase you. You'll be responsible for preparing orders for dispatch, loading and unloading deliveries, picking stock items, and helping to monitor and maintain stock levels. Keen numeracy and literacy skills, and your natural ability to communicate and feed back to all people within your team will be your foundation. You'll play a key role in helping to ensure all of our Playground installs go smoothly because you'll be providing our installers week in week out with all they need. It’s a busy, fast-moving role that will keep you fit, see you operating a forklift, and provide plenty of variety. You will also be expected to support with any ad hoc warehouse administration required and take pride in keeping a tidy and organised Warehouse and yard. You may occasionally be required to work overtime and on weekends.
