Warehouse Associates are a key part of the logistics team. They’re responsible for ensuring any deliveries the warehouse receives are quickly, safely and correctly unloaded and stored. They also work as the link between you and your customers by picking and packing deliveries that leave the warehouse and helping to load them into the delivery vehicle.

• A good level of physical fitness and ability to lift and manoeuvre deliveries.
• Great organisation and motivation skills.
• Ability to work both independently and as part of a team.
• A good sense of direction and location ability.
• Great work ethic and ability to work to targets.
