OPPORTUNITIES IN DISTRIBUTION

Interested in working in warehousing or distribution?

We opened our first modern distribution centre in Cumbernauld, Scotland in 1978. Since then we have expanded our operation and have opened another three distribution centres in Warrington, Solihull and Bristol. Our four depots serve our 300 branches and are home to 800 employees working 24 hours a day, 363 days a year.

There are no qualifications required to become a Warehouse Operative.
As a driver, we require you to have an LGV class 1 driving licence.
Our Warehouse Operatives receive health and safety training including manual handling as well as being taught how to use our manual handling equipment. You will learn the ropes by being buddied up with an experienced member of our team who will show you how we do things at Farmfoods.
As a driver you’ll also receive health and safety and manual handling training. You will be paired with one of our driver trainers for 2 days and experience what it is like to make a delivery and learn our processes and procedures. Following that they will be there to support you when necessary.
Our shift patterns are:
06:00 – 14:00
14:00 – 00:00
00:00 – 06:00
Of course, you are more than welcome to apply again.
Unfortunately, we don’t currently have the facilities to take a new driver through the qualification. But we do have in-house trainers who will be there to complete refresher training throughout your time at Farmfoods.
At Farmfoods we operate efficiently, our retail colleagues work hard and so do we. It wouldn’t be fair to pull up to the store and relax while our colleagues work hard around us, everyone must pull their weight and help out.
