When We Need You
From 10/06/2009 onwards
A key part of our shop operation is behind the scenes in the Warehouse. This is where we check the furniture and electrical items etc for quality before it goes on the shop floor. We assist the van crews to load and unload the goods we prepare, clean, ticket and price them. This is a very interesting and varied opportunity and you will enjoy working as part of the warehouse team.
