A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a Forklift Operator within our client's busy warehouse in the Derry area. The successful candidate will work in a well-organised, efficient, and busy warehouse preparing goods for distribution to customers.
The Forklift Driver will work primarily as a Warehouse Operative and will use Counterbalance and Reach forklifts throughout each day. The duties of the role will include loading and unloading the pallets, wrapping the products on the pallet in protective cellophane, transporting goods throughout the site via Pallet Trucks and Forklifts, transporting goods to the Warehouse, placing products on the storage shelves via the Forklifts, adhering to Health & Safety policies and procedures, and working within a team.
The ideal candidate is someone with a Reach licence and a year's experience operating within a Warehouse. A Reach licence is preferable but a Counterbalance licence will be accepted if the candidate doesn't have a Reach licence. The Forklift Operator will be working 38 hours per week between Monday and Friday and on a 24-hour rota. The shifts are 0800-1600, 1600-0000, and 0000-0800.
Candidates must have a Reach or a Counterbalance forklift licence and at least one year's experience within a warehouse environment.
Our client focuses heavily on Health & Safety at Work practices and on providing an efficient, accurate, and quality service to their internal and external customers. You will benefit from an excellent team environment, a safe and clean working environment, and a structured training development plan. As soon as the Forklift Driver commences in this role, our client will commence the process of training and developing that individual so as to get them through the training period, to get them to a higher rate of pay, and to get them into the role on a permanent basis.
This is a temporary-to-permanent role, and the Forklift Driver / Warehouse Operative will work with our client to complete their training period and, after that three-month period, the rate of pay will increase from £10.92 to £11.90 per hour.
This is an immediate vacancy for a long-term temporary role which our client intends to make permanent within the Forklift Driver's first year. So if you have a Reach or a Counterbalance licence, one year's experience in a warehouse, and want to apply for this role, call Gerry O'Halloran at Brook Street (UK) Ltd on 028 90 881100 immediately or email your CV to Brook Street (UK) Ltd via the 'apply' link.
