Job Description

Warehouse Operative / Mail-room

Our client, a global finance organisation and well known brand is seeking two passionate Warehouse / Mail-room Operatives with a keen interest in logistics to join their busy team in business critical roles with varied duties and the opportunity to learn new skills.

The roles will be primarily based in Central London or Canning Town, with some travel occasionally required to the other location (either central London or Canning Town). Applicants may be rotated into different areas according to the business needs, so will need to have a flexible mindset and be prepared to work in several different areas including assisting with an office move and decommissioning, goods-in and out, or electronics repair. Full training will be provided, but experience in these areas would be a bonus.

Duties that may be included: Forklift driving, use of the SAP stock control system, lifting of heavy and bulking items, logistics planning, accurate stock checking, basic administration and providing excellent customer service to other departments.

The successful candidates will need to be available to start work asap. Initially the role will be a 6 month fixed-term contract but there is the potential for extension. Previous temporary workers in the team have been made permanent and growth opportunities are available for the right applicants.
