Be a warehouse life-saver

Working in a warehouse environment, you will receive and despatch goods to ensure we are able to collect, process and issue blood and blood products to our medical teams. Using a REACH fork lift truck to load and unload vehicles and pallet racking systems safely, you will also enter stock and non-stock items into our computerised system to ensure everything is correctly documented. Manually handling stock (using good manual handling techniques), you will also pick customer orders accurately with a clear understanding of First in First out (FIFO), Last in First out (LIFO) and lot number control. Bringing a cheerful can-do attitude to this team, you'll support the smooth functioning of our vibrant warehouse.

To succeed in this fantastic role, you will have experience of driving a REACH fork lift truck, with a valid license to do so. Your previous experience in a warehouse environment will also mean that you have the ability to undertake accurate order picking and it would be an added bonus (though isn't strictly necessary) if you have formal manual handling training and grade C (or above) GCSE qualifications. You'll need to have excellent communication skills as you will be dealing with suppliers and customers by phone and you will ideally have good IT skills using packages such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Motivated to meet your responsibilities within an agreed timescale, you'll have the confidence to prioritise your own workload.

This is a great opportunity to be a key part of a close-knit team who are committed to supporting the work of our medical professionals. Their valuable input ensures the wellbeing of thousands of patients, providing a level of excellence that makes NHSBT so crucial to so many people. If you're ready to join a team where your work actually makes a difference, and your voice and ambitions will be heard, then join us today.

The normal working hours for this role are 37.5 hours per week.
