Suma is looking for Evening Warehouse Workers

Submitted by on May 2, 2016 – 9:20 amOne Comment

We are currently recruiting

Emma balances her working week between working in our sales and customer information teams with a mix of manual warehouse work.

We are pleased to announce that we are looking to recruit part time workers for evening shifts at our Elland warehouse. Successful candidates will initially be trained in order picking but may then be trained in other warehouse roles such as loading and FLT.

All contracts will be for a fixed term of up to 18 months. We are looking for people to work at least three evening shifts per week with potential for more shifts as overtime.

All Suma workers earn the same rate of pay regardless of role, which is currently around £227.00 per week gross for 18 hours.

We value diversity; our workforce is made up of people from all walks of life with a commitment to ethical values and collective working. Applications must be on our application form (CV’s not accepted) – you can hand write it, type it, post it, submit it by email, whatever is best for you – as long as it’s on our own application form downloadable from our jobs page.  Please see the Evening Warehouse Worker Job Description for more information and when applying, please be sure to complete the section about availability.

    Just found out about your company today. Sounds like wonderful setup. As well as your obvious dedication to ethical sourcing your management system seems like the model all companies should should be aiming for. Equal pay! How ground breaking is that! Power to your elbow! You deserve to go from strength to strength!
