K&D is delighted to be supporting our client who is looking for a Warehouse Assistant for their site in Park Royal.

You must have a full driving licence as you will also be needed as a relief driver for the company from time to time.

As a relief driver, you will be required to drive Medium Wheel Based Sprinter vans, so you will need a normal driving licence.

Our client will provide comprehensive training on driving routes so previous experience as a delivery driver isn’t essential.

The warehouse component of the role involves picking, packing, checking orders, and ensuring they are ready to leave at the required time. They have a digital system for picking orders, showing the location and number of items to be picked. The relief driving component involves the delivery and collection of orders from around the London area. Ensuring that customers & suppliers are treated with respect and items are handled with care.

40-hour week, £11 per hour, Monday to Friday, varies from 7 am – 4 pm, 8 am – 5 pm or 9 am – 6 pm.

Overall Objective of Role
