Description of Opportunity

At Next Distribution you will be working towards a Supply Chain Warehouse Operative Level 2 Apprenticeship standard over the course of 15 months.

Our teams are passionate about providing a high-quality service to our customers. Every day will create new challenges and we are looking for someone who can deliver the care and attention that we bring into everything we do at Next.

In addition, the apprenticeship training will underpin your development and provide an excellent platform for progression in the future. All of our Senior Managers started in warehousing.

Day-to-day responsibilities:

- Although you will start at one of the Dearne sites, you will be trained at both. They are next door to each other so don't worry about any travel.

You will be trained on all parts of the retail operation on both the process of handling goods coming in and preparing goods for store replenishment.

- Dearne Valley Pallet (DVP)is our biggest home product warehouse. 90% of all our home products, excluding sofas, both retail & on line come from DVP. Your Training here will predominantly be on the line picking & packing. If you are 18+ you will also be trained to drive Mechanical Handling Equipment.

- Your days tend to fly and it is a physical job, so this is no boring office role.

Warehousing these days is not as simple as it used to be and our senior teams at both sites will spend time with you to explain.

1. How it all fits together Warehouse in terms of getting products to store/customer.

2. How we forecast seasonally

3. Daily planning of operations

4. Warehouse work flows i.e.. how many areas of the warehouse, and hands handle an individual customer order

5. All the areas of the Business you may want to build a career in the future; Transport, Engineering, Loss Prevention, IT and Systems, HR, to name a few.
