Warehouse Assistant

  • VO80859


Description

Working as part of a team, we will ask you to collect and deliver furniture to customers who utilise the PUSH service. We may also ask you to help to collect items from a shipping container that we service on the Friarton site, sort through donations and breakdown furniture into recyclable components and recycle metal. If this is not enough we may also ask you to help catalogue the furniture by photographing the items and writing details on a prepared sheet. Lastly, it is important that our products work so in the past the staff have tested pogo sticks, remote control vehicles and bikes.

We usually organise PAT testing training once a year – so if you have access to an ITA account there is an opportunity to learn and practice the skills gained. In addition to this, we also have access to a variety of other free training opportunities such as First Aid and customer service.

Organisation aims and objectives
