Our client is currently recruiting for a Warehouse Operative / Relief Driver to join their team to efficiently receive, store, handle, check and dispatch goods.

 

Within this role you will maintain storage areas, assemble and pack goods for customers, as well as load and unload delivery vehicles, carefully checking goods supplied against paperwork.

As the Relief Driver, you will also be responsible for ensuring the vehicle is correctly loaded and secured before making deliveries.

 

Their ideal candidate will have experience of working within a similar role and will have interfaced with customers on a regular basis.

They are welcoming applications from self-motivated team players with the ability to prioritise and remain calm under pressure. You will have manual handling experience and ideally have knowledge of building / trade products. Due to the nature of the role, it is essential that you have a full, clean UK driving licence with good knowledge of the surrounding area for deliveries.
