The company is a well known international brand with excellent on site facilities including parking, canteen and showers.

Duties include picking and packing of customer orders within the prescribed timescale and in accordance with customer requirements and documented procedures.

  • Recording details of each order picked on the Daily Activity Record and returning this to the Supervisor at the end of the working week;
  • Removing any product found to be damaged or stored in an incorrect stock location as may be identified during the course of picking and bringing this to the immediate attention of the Supervisor.
  • Moving completed orders to dispatch ready for packing;
  • Assembling packing cartons prior to picking;
  • Sorting and filing completed Transfer Orders;
  • General housekeeping tasks
  • Conducting physical counts of Finished Goods stock

In addition to the above, the Replenishment team assist with the packing & distribution of products to appropriate internal departments and provide cover and support to the wider General Stores and Warehouse areas as and when required.
