If you’re looking for warehouse jobs near you, whether that’s Corby, Kettering, Thrapston, or anywhere within Northamptonshire, then you’ve come to the right place. But, there are a few things to consider before applying for a warehouse operative position. It’s important to understand exactly what the role consists of before putting your C.V. forward.
1. What duties typically include for a job in a warehouse
Being a warehouse operative requires a certain amount of physical fitness, although this varies depending on the role itself. It’s often a logical role requiring a methodical approach, so being organised and efficient is something all employers will look for.
Typically you could expect to assist with the loading and unloading of vehicles and checking in stock. You could be sorting goods onto racks or shelving systems or even picking goods and preparing them for collection. You might also be asked to count stock and perform inventories, often with the use of technology to assist you.
2. Rotational shift patterns
Warehouse worker shifts are often rotational, this means one week you could be on an early shift, and the next you could be working late or night shifts. Whilst this can take a bit of getting used to, you’ll find out your shift patterns in advance, making it easy to work around your home life.
Many warehouse operatives enjoy the flexibility that rotational shifts provide, but if you’re opposed to working night shifts, for example, simply let a member of our team know and we can find you a position that only requires daytime working.
3. Temporary and permanent warehouse operative roles
Sometimes warehouse work is seasonal – a prime example of this is when consumer demand is heightened around Christmas, meaning an increase in temporary warehouse operative contracts around the festive period. Temporary warehouse work is a great way to get to know an employer, and a brilliant way to understand the industry to decide if a permanent position is something you’d be interested in.
A permanent position in a warehouse could be more difficult to obtain, so starting with a temporary contract is often a great way to demonstrate to an employer that you’re reliable, capable, and driven. This makes it more likely to secure a permanent position in the future.
