Purpose of the role
In joining our Logistics team, you will be given the opportunity to train and develop throughout our clear progression pathways. This is an excellent opportunity for someone with Warehouse experience but wants to develop it further, or someone who just fancies a change in direction!
Starting in palletising you will be working in a fast-paced chilled environment palletising our customers cases in preparation for their storage.  You will be trained in our picking processes, and further training is available for you to operate our MHE, developing from an RPPT operator right through to our VNA, counterbalance and reach trucks.

Why stop there?  If you are keen to progress further we have opportunities for you to join our goods yard team, routes into supervisory/management roles, and if you we are also looking to “grow our own” C&E Distribution Drivers of the future!

•Scanning
•Loading
•Stock taking
•Palletising


What we are looking for:
•Minimum Entry Level 1 – Functional Skills. 
•The ability to work well within a team and communicate effectively 
•Good attention to detail and a flexible attitude to tasks
•Experience within a production/manufacturing environment is desirable but not essential as full training will be provided

We have a robust training program in place to help support the right candidate to develop skills in MHE and despatch processes.  So if you are looking for a new challenge or have a proven track record of working in a similar department this is an excellent opportunity to be part of our new Logistics team. 

Working Hours: 

Days: Monday to Friday 7am - 4pm and Nights: Sunday - Thursday 10pm -7am on a 2 weekly rotation
