of £26,000 which is negotiable depending on experience. This comes as part of a
package with a range of benefits including a company car, staff discount,
pension, life insurance and private health insurance.
We are committed to the ongoing
training of all our employees and require you to study for IOSH health and
safety qualifications if you do not already hold these. In addition, we
encourage you to continue your professional development through appropriate
courses. We will fully fund all courses for accredited qualifications relevant
to your position as warehouse manager.
Our production department operates
24 hours a day, seven days a week on a shift system. Although your set hours
will be 8.00 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. Monday to Friday, you will sometimes be called
upon to work at weekends and during night shifts in certain situations. Enhanced
pay for unsociable hours and time off in lieu will be given.
