Warehouse Trainer (18 Month FTC)
We are FareShare, the UK’s largest charity fighting hunger and food waste. We are a charitable distribution network that takes excess, in-date and good to eat food and redistributes it to other charities that turn it into meals.
Currently, there is an increasing demand for our services and it’s more important than ever that we get quality donated and surplus food to those in need.
We are now looking for a Warehouse Trainer to join us for an 18 month pilot programme to support long-term unemployed people to gain valuable skills and experience.
- Salary of £19,000 - £22,000 per annum dependent on qualifications and experience
- Travelcard loans (if applicable)
- Cycle to work scheme
- Employee assistance programme
This is a unique opportunity for a proven training professional from a warehousing background to get involved in the initial stages of a scheme to get unemployed individuals back into work for good.
During these uncertain times, it is important that long-term unemployed people are helped to find work and equipped with the ability to sustain it. Our new project is to tackle just that and you will be playing a vital role in the delivery and success of the project.
What’s more, through your efforts, this pilot could become a national initiative that is rolled out at our regional centres across the country.
So, if you are ready to support volunteering as a way back into work and have the drive and knowledge to equip people with the skills they need to succeed in the workplace, we are waiting to hear from you.
As a Warehouse Trainer, you will be tasked with supporting an employability project which enables the long-term unemployed to get back into work and sustain this. Specifically, the project involves equipping unemployed people with skills and experience through a volunteering programme within our Merseyside warehouse and supporting them through 1-2-1 and group support activities.
Within the warehouse, trainees (project service users) will participate in day-to-day operations and be provided with a site induction and manual handling training. You will coach them to develop important vocational skills including picking and packing and maintaining clean workspaces.
Support activities will include taking trainees through an assessment process to identify where they need the most help, supporting them to search, secure and sustain employment and providing up to 26 weeks of follow-on support.
There is also a jointly delivered wellbeing element to this project. This will involve forging partnerships with community assets and bringing wellbeing services into the Merseyside centre to enable trainees to access these. Trainees will be provided with a limited personal budget to engage with these services.
Your role will involve:
- Forming part of the project team alongside an Employment Coach
- Delivering all elements of the warehouse and training activities
- Jointly delivering the wellbeing services
- Maintaining a caseload of trainees and ensuring their attendance at training sessions
- Offering appropriate information, advice and guidance to trainees
- Helping to create development plans for trainees
- Motivating trainees, delivering coaching and relevant training
To be considered as a Warehouse Trainer, you will need:
- Experience of developing and delivering successful warehouse training programmes
- Experience of monitoring and evaluation of training programmes
- To be an experienced FLT operator
- A track record of engaging with a wide range of people
Experience of working to an outcome-based model achieving ambitious targets would be beneficial to your application. An FLT instructor qualification would also be desirable, as would coaching and/or mentoring experience.
Experience of delivering Vocational Warehouse Training QCFs would also be advantageous, as would a training qualification. Experience of delivering projects would also be favourable, as would experience of working with volunteers and/or adults with additional needs.
Other organisations may call this role Warehouse Training Specialist, Skills Trainer, Employability Trainer, Employability Skills Trainer, FLT Trainer, Forklift Truck Trainer, or MHE Trainer.
