We have an exciting opportunity available to join a large and lively team, working for a very well known retailer. This company is impressive; they have grown substantially over recent years due to their mega success. They are financially stable, with a great reputation and people want to work for them. You will be based in their very large, modern, busy distribution warehouse within their chilled food department.
This is an amazing long term temporary job opportunity to join an existing team, with a potential to go permanent for the right candidate once you have worked twelve weeks. As a team you work together to ensure all products are picked, loaded onto a pallet, which is on a low level order picker, and then wrapped ready for dispatch. The team manage fresh chilled products, such as fruit and vegetables, where they have less than a 10 day shelf life, so working quickly and effectively is imperative.
You will work from 5 am, arriving fifteen minutes early so you are ready to start. You will work a seven hour shift, usually finishing at 12 pm or until the job is done. You can boost your hours up by working on your day off, or earlier or later once you have proved yourself. They are open every day of the year, excluding Easter Sunday, Christmas Day and New Years Day. Everyone works on planned rotas; the rota is five days on and three days off. If you work a Bank Holiday you get paid double time.
To be considered for this opportunity, you will need experience working in a fast paced physical environment. You will need to be happy to provide reference details, pass a criminal check and be happy with ad hoc drug and alcohol testing. Due to the location being just outside of Chelmsford town centre, you will need your own car or motor bike; however some flexibility can be considered if you live in Chelmsford and have a push bike.
The pay rate is £8.50 per hour for the first twelve weeks, this increases to £10.38 per hour from week thirteen onwards. Then if you become permanent it will increase again after 1 year. You will be paid every Friday, one week behind the week that you work.
Please call Lisa or Kathy on 01245 493 533 to find out more.
Alternatively, please send your CV and we will contact you.
