Warehousing Operative

Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria
7 Sep 2022

Temp - Perm opportunity

Fixed term contract until 14th January 2023 - potential opportunity for a permanent contract at the end of this period however, this may be on a different shift pattern.

This position will require you to work on a 6 week rotating pattern with a mixture of early and late shifts with 1 full weekend and 1 Sunday required within each 6 week period, each week you will work 37 hours.

Customers choose Lakeland for the superior quality of both our products and the customer experiences we deliver. As a Warehouse Operative, you'll play an important part in that by ensuring that our customers receive their order quickly and in perfect condition. You'll be part of a team that prides itself on its supportive work culture and enjoys great benefits.

What will your job look like?

You'll be responsible for picking and packing orders and preparing them for dispatch to customers and stores. Keeping the distribution clean, tidy and safe at all times, you and your team will create a pleasant environment where everyone feels able to reach their full potential. Be outstanding in your service here and there's plenty of room to progress-but you'll be off to a great start.

What skills are we looking for

We're looking for enthusiastic and hard-working people to join the Lakeland family and help inspire magic in the home!

If you've got experience in warehouses, that's great-but what's important is that you're bursting with energy and have the kind of positive can-do approach to work that'll help you fit right in here. You'll have attention to detail and be able to listen to and carry out instructions to the letter. Then there's going the extra mile' for your team mates, which is how you'll show that you're ready for more senior roles. 

A little about us

From humble beginnings as a tight-knit family operation, we've grown into a prestigious kitchenware retailer with over 60 stores nationally, from Aberdeen to Truro. We've done that by always staying ahead of the pack and looking at things in our own way. 

When the home freezing boom happened in the 70s, we anticipated a kitchenware revolution. Now, we're investing millions to ensure that our online offering is top notch, and that our retail stores can offer an experience worthy of a visit. That innovative spirit coupled with our intense customer focus has been the story of our success-work with us and it could be yours too.

What's in it for you?

There are many benefits to being part of the Lakeland team. Other than being part of a huge and happy working family, our colleagues are rewarded with a competitive salary and a group personal pension plan.  There is also the opportunity to be trained on our low level order picker (LLOP) trucks and to receive a mentor approved certification licence.

There are 29 days' paid holiday (including bank holidays) and generous discounts on our products. We offer a great retail environment, and the chance to be part of a team who like to work and socialise together.
