Are you looking for a Permanent role with an opportunity to grow with a market leading and rapidly expanding parcel delivery business?
We are looking for Parcel Sorters and Loaders to work out of a BRAND NEW depot in the Birchwood area.
Your Time at Work
The Parcel Sorter/Loader position at our client site in Birchwood is responsible for the loading and unloading of vehicles and the sortation and scanning of parcels into cages. This role requires the manual handling of both small and large items and sacks, physical as well as mental agility is needed.
This is a fast paced environment and you will need to keep up with the line.
The depot in Birchwood is a BRAND NEW site, new equipment, new building and you will potentially be some of the first colleagues to work there so there will be plenty of opportunities for development.
About the Role:
You'll report in to your Shift Supervisor and Night shift Manager, where you will be part of a shift that processes a large volume of parcels. Depending on which shift and what day, it may be anything from 40,000 to a 100,000 parcels in a shift.
But don't worry you won't be tackling them alone!
You'll work as part of a team and use some really smart kit to help you sort all those parcels efficiently. You'll use Hand-Held Terminals (HHT's), pump-trucks (once you're trained) and work on fancy conveyor systems that bring the parcels to you and then you will sort them in to smaller "collars" for certain areas and postcodes. This isn't an easy job and at times you will have to deal with large volumes but then there will be times when the volumes are lighter and you'll have chance to gain new skills and experience.
