About us

At Pets at Home, we’re committed to making sure pets and their owners get the very best advice, care and products.


Due to our success and growth, we’re rapidly expanding our warehouse teams. When you join us, you can be sure of secure, reliable work and a world of opportunity.


We’re not any old warehouse. Because we want to be the best pet care company in the world. And to do that, we do the best for our colleagues.


The role

We’re rapidly expanding our warehouse teams and this is a hands-on role working in our distribution centre, where you’ll be lifting, picking, packing and wrapping. It’s a busy job keeping our customers – and their pets – happy. You’ll be part of a friendly team, picking and packing various pet products – anything from tennis balls up to large fish tanks. Sometimes you might be asked to do other duties – such as sorting parcels, loading or unloading trailers and replenishing stock.


We know that some people just want job security and flexible working patterns. If that’s the case, and you contribute to our growing success, then that’s exactly what you’ll get. But if you want to go further in your career, with us or elsewhere, we’ll give you every opportunity to progress, learn new skills and get qualified, too.


Either way, the first few months can be daunting. So, you’ll start with an in-depth, 12-week training programme inclusive of training on manual handling equipment (MHE) and Fork Lift Truck to get you settled in, confident and ready for every opportunity.


The benefits

We offer some great rewards for your hard work, including various shift allowances, generous holiday allowances (including an extra day on your birthday!) you can save for your future with our pension scheme, or save today with a 20% in store discount, plus extra discounts on days out, cinema tickets and much more!

In 3 to 4 years’ time we’re moving to a new purpose-built facility in Stafford, we'd love you to come with us but we realise this might not be for everyone! We’re committed to developing all of our colleagues, so whether your future is within our DC, our wider Group or elsewhere, you'll get the best training and support to develop your skills for now and in the future.
