Job Description:

We're seeking a detail-oriented individual to join our team as a Picking and Packing Operative. In this role, you'll be responsible for efficiently picking and packing wholesale orders for our valued retail partners. While previous experience is advantageous, it's not essential—what matters most is your willingness to learn and your commitment to ensuring our customers receive top-quality products every time

Key Responsibilities:

  1. Accurately pick items from our inventory to fulfill wholesale orders, paying close attention to order details and quantities.
  2. Carefully pack selected items into appropriate packaging, ensuring products are handled with care to prevent damage during transit.
  3. Label packages accurately with shipping information and ensure they are ready for dispatch according to established procedures.
  4. Work collaboratively with team members to prioritise orders and meet deadlines in a fast-paced environment.
  5. Maintain a clean and organised workspace, following food safety and hygiene guidelines at all times.
  6. Communicate any issues or discrepancies with orders to the appropriate team members to ensure timely resolution.
  7. Adapt to changing priorities and tasks as needed to support the overall efficiency of the picking and packing process.
  8. Embrace opportunities for learning and skill development to enhance performance and contribute to the success of the team.
  9. Uphold company policies and procedures, including health and safety regulations, to ensure a safe and positive work environment for all staff.


  • Previous experience in picking, packing, or warehouse roles is advantageous but not essential.
  • Attention to detail and the ability to work accurately under pressure.
  • Strong organisational skills and the ability to prioritise tasks effectively.
  • Good communication skills and the ability to work well within a team.
  • Flexibility to adapt to changing priorities and tasks as required.
  • Positive attitude and willingness to learn and grow within the role.
  • Commitment to upholding food safety and hygiene standards at all times.
  • Physical fitness and the ability to lift and move heavy boxes as needed.
