Warehouse Operative Jobs

Warehouse operatives make sure that stock is stored in the right place and the right amount of stock is ready for collection when it is needed. Warehouse operatives will report to the warehouse manager who is responsible for the efficient running of the warehouse. Operatives will have duties include checking, storing, packing and moving goods.

The working hours are 37-40 hours a week, often on a shift system with opportunities for overtime. Warehouse operatives will find that they are mainly working in light and airy warehouses. They will be involved in lifting, bending, stretching and carrying.
