Warehouse Jobs​

A Warehouse Operative is someone who works as part of a team that helps gets goods to customers. This job involves safely unloading items, packing them carefully into boxes, and collecting specific orders to be sent out to people. It can also be called a factory worker or picker/packer job.

The growth of online shopping has meant there are lots of opportunities for work, especially during busy retail periods like Christmas. And there are lots of types of businesses a warehouse operative could work for, including manufacturers and distributors of goods like food and beverages, electrical items, furniture, clothes and many more.

Duties of a Warehouse Operative

Warehouse work can include:

  • Assisting with the unloading of vehicles and the checking in of stock

  • Sorting and placing materials or items on to racks, and shelves.

  • Collecting items from around the warehouse, preparing and completing warehouse orders for delivery or pickup according to a schedule

  • Performing warehouse inventory controls via scanner and or through a computer. Stock counting and location checks.

Shifts

Warehouse operatives usually work on a rotating shift schedule. This means that you may be doing early shifts one week, followed by some days off and then onto late or night shifts. So this type of work is great if you need flexibility with when you work, or are looking for some temporary work. However, the hours will depend on the type of company you’re employed by. Not all employers need people to work late or night shifts, so it is possible to find regular hours.

Pay

The average pay rate for a warehouse worker is £7.82 - £9.97 per hour, depending on your experience and level of responsibility. You will generally work around 38-40 hours a week.
