Permanent contract


2 x Team Leader (1 x Night Shift and 1 x Day Shift)

We are seeking to recruit 2 full time Team Leaders (1 x Night Shift and 1 x Day Shift).

Are you a passionate and experienced people leader? Do you know what delivering excellent customer service looks like? Are you looking for your new and challenging leadership opportunity?

The role

We are looking to strengthen and expand our leadership team with two, experienced, strong people leaders in our loose picking area in our distribution centre in Swansea. With opportunities on both day and night shift, you would be part of a small and supportive departmental management team with leadership responsibility for two Supervisors and report into the Department Manager.

Both roles are within our loose picking area and have great variety in the opportunities and challenges it faces every day; and with up to 100 team members it very much has a people focus as its core. In a customer centric environment, we see great fluctuations in our volume demands and our leadership team have to be equipped and confident to make decisions to ensure an efficient and effective pick and pack operation in both proactive and reactive ways.

We utilise Voice activated picking and putaway within the warehouse and we continue to identify ways to improve the ways in which this is optimised for the team and business. Experience of Voice could be beneficial but not essential.

The person

We're very interested to talk to you if you're a strong, motivational and engaging people leader with demonstrable experience of managing teams of over 10. Ideally, you will have worked in a warehousing or logistics environment, and have experience in managing and working to tight deadlines and service levels.

You will have experience in identifying and supporting the implementation of change initiatives from a people, process and service perspective but will very much enjoy being hands on to ensure workloads are achieved to agreed service levels. You will also have a keen eye for detail and be computer savvy.

What you'll get from us is a supportive and challenging environment, but also time and investment in you to develop through on the job and relevant external learning. If you're thinking this could be the role and place for you, get in touch, we'd love to hear from you!

Hours of work will be:
  • Night Shift: 10pm - 6am Sunday to Thursday
  • Day Shift: 37.5 hours per week between 6am - 6pm Monday to Friday

  • 25 days holiday plus bank holidays
