However, this is an incredibly busy year for the client therefore there would be opportunities for right candidates to secure permanent positions and have ongoing work.

This client provides an outstanding working environment, clean and tidy workplace and a lot of support throughout your time there.

Also, it has a perfect location making it accessible for those who rely on public transport.


The hourly rate starts at £8.21 per hour

About the role:

A lot of the role will be repetitive and you will be on your feet for the duration of the shift.

However, you will not always be working in the same location of the warehouse as there are constant demands in different areas from: packing, order picking, general cleaning, stock takes and stock replenishment.

You will be required to pack orders into sets delicately. If you have ever completed stock takes or used hand held scanners this will prove to be advantageous, as there are roles available for the picking side of the warehouse.

An ideal candidate for this role should have:

  • Experience within a packing order environment
  • Worked to targets previously
  • Looking for ongoing work with a potential of gaining a contract
  • Have experience with using hand held scanners, and working off paper orders.
  • Able to work in a fast pace environment

  • Have an eye for detail with accuracy.
  • Have great time keeping skills
  • Able to start work at 7.30am.

The commute:

If you don't have access to your own transport - don't worry as warehouse can be accessed by: bus, cycling and walk.

There are bus routes that drop you close to the warehouse, with a short walking distance.

We have a high volume of applicants for this position. Therefore, please apply and provide us with a CV that has an UP-TO-DATE Work History.
