Full Time

Our huge distribution centres stock every product we sell in our stores. And they never stop. 24 hours a day, our teams receive, manage and ship out products from across our many different warehouse sections, including fruit and veg, meat and poultry, alcohol and frozen goods.
Our Goods Out team make sure the right products get loaded into trucks and shipped off to our stores, night and day. As Assistant Team Manager, you'll help inspire and motivate the team to get it spot on, pallet after pallet, shift after shift.

You'll help the Team Manager to manage hauliers. Planning and booking in deliveries to stores in your area, you'll help make sure every store gets exactly the stock they need, when they need it. Is every product packed and loaded as it should be? Is every truck at the right temperature? Is the paperwork all sorted? Over to you.

It's relentless but rewarding. Thinking on your feet and staying cool under pressure, you'll need to be assertive and straight-talking, happy to handle some strong personalities. It's fast-paced and packed with challenges. And that's just the way you like it.
