  • Our success is built on strong relationships with our customers so it’s essential that you can help deliver the highest standards of service - the key thing is to be helpful and friendly at all times, you will likely get to know our customers on a first name basis.
  • You will be based outside, processing our customer orders, loading and unloading customer and company vehicles.

  • Full training is provided in order to drive our forklifts.
  • Safety is at the forefront of everything we do, your aim will be to ensure that our standards never slip, this means maintaining a tidy and safe working environment

The team is very friendly and has a lot of experience between the staff members in the team. They strive to make sure their service is the best in town. With a lot of local competition we are looking for somebody who can bring enthusiasm and drive to our yard team to make the branch complete. Everybody pitches in to ensure the 100 collects they receive on average daily are dealt with and customers are leaving satisfied. Experience is preferred, but not necessary as we are looking for someone with drive and determination to help this branch succeed.
