Role Details

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.

If you want to go further in your career we’ll give you every opportunity to progress, learn new skills and get qualified, too. You’ll start with an in-depth, 12-week training programme inclusive of training on manual handling equipment (MHE) to get you settled in, confident and ready for every opportunity.

  • Can you work at pace?
  • Do you love to work as part of a team?
  • Are you able to work a range of shifts, including weekends?
