Nights Warehouse Operative – Bristol – Full Time, Permanent – ASAP Start Dates

We are excited as we prepare to open our new, high tech warehouse in Bristol and are looking to recruit Warehouse Operatives who want to be a part of our future.

This isn’t just an ordinary warehouse – we use innovative and state of the art technology and joining us as a Warehouse Operative means you’ll be working for the world’s largest and fastest growing online grocery retailer in an extremely safe and clean, fast-paced, warehouse environment.

Our first employees will play a very special part by helping us get the site ready to operate. This means initially you will be working in our Inbound team – unpacking, inspecting, and scanning our storage totes ahead of taking deliveries and receiving and decanting goods into the totes. The tasks can be repetitive but joining us so early on will give you fantastic exposure and genuine opportunities to progress to other roles.

Want to be a critical part of Ocado, where you are making a real difference to the lives of our customers every day? Great, here’s what you need to know.
