*Why Join the Hermes Depot Teams?*
We lead the way in delivery and invest to keep growing. If you're looking for job stability, you'll find it here. Hermes work with over 80% of the UK's leading high-street retailers, including fashion brands ASOS, Boohoo and Next. And we're striving for more. Quick decisions keep us ahead of the game. We deliver greatness together, working to hit ambitious deadlines and break records. As a Warehouse Operative you'll join a motivated delivery team at an exciting time of acceleration for the business.
*What You'll Do: *
Our Warehouse Operatives are responsible for the loading and unloading of vehicles, plus the sorting and scanning of parcels into cages. Therefore, you must be physically fit and comfortable using safe, manual-handling techniques.
Our depots process anything from 40,000 to 100,000 parcels in a shift. But don't worry, you won't be tackling them alone! Team work will be key and there'll be some smart kit to help. You'll use hand-held terminals (easier than a smartphone we think), pump-trucks (once you're trained) and work with clever conveyor systems that deliver parcels to you. You'll then sort them into "collars" for smaller areas and postcodes.
The job isn't always easy. At times, you'll have to deal with large volumes of parcels. But you'll be given space to get the work done, thinking quickly to hit moving targets.
Our full-time contracts are 40hrs per week, either working exclusively days/nights or twilight, including some weekend shifts. We'll make sure you know your rota in advance. Flexible and part-time hours are also available.
*Essential Skills & Experience Required: *
· Comply with company and health and safety regulations to ensure a safe working environment
· Work efficiently and effectively as part of a team
· Ensure scanning compliance
· Physical fitness
