Staffline is one of the UK's leading recruitment companies, helping to find work for thousands of people on a daily basis. Our temporary workers can enjoy great benefits including training and apprenticeships, as well as real opportunities for career progression and permanent employment.

We are consistently recruiting for Warehouse Operatives to work at our client’s busy distribution site based in the Avonmouth area.
The main duty of the role will be to use manual handling equipment within a large chilled warehouse to pick a variety of fresh produce - ranging from fresh vegetables, dairy products, desserts etc. Successful candidates will be working in a chilled & ambient warehouse, operating both manual and electrical pallet trucks and stacking items into roll cages, guided by digital wrist mounted computers and trigger scanners.

This role includes some heavy lifting and repetitive actions in the picking and stacking of the cages and dollies. A high level of attention to detail is required to ensure accuracy in order picking and awareness of other colleagues is needed whilst using the trucks.
