Night shift 10pm-6am, 5 over 7 days
Biggleswade depot

We’re looking for a number of team managers to lead the warehouse team at our new flagship depot in Biggleswade. 

As a warehouse team manager, you’ll lead a team of warehouse colleagues who make sure products reach our customers safely, on time and in pristine condition. You’ll inspire and lead your team to perform at their best and give them the opportunities to develop their skills.

We’re looking for people who love to coach, motivate and develop teams. You’ll need great communication skills, however, previous experience in a warehouse environment is not required. We aim to make Biggleswade a welcoming and fully inclusive environment – it’s important our team represents the communities it serves, so we welcome and encourage applications from people of all backgrounds.

Opening in January 2022, Biggleswade will be a multi-chamber pick and cross dock operation. Spread over 660,000 square feet with ambient, chilled and frozen chambers, it’ll be home to over 1,000 colleagues and serve more than 350 Co-op stores as the largest and most sustainable depot in our network.

What you’ll do

•    influence our ways of working and contribute to building a positive colleague experience by providing visible leadership
•    lead a team of warehouse colleagues to deliver high standards and efficient operations
•    build positive relationships with your team as well as other colleagues and external partners
•    work with your team to deliver a first-class service to our customers
•    work with the wider depot team to deliver against performance targets 
•    help to build a transparent, safety-first culture and make sure our health and safety and legal policies and practices are followed
•    gain insights from colleagues to support the operation with continuous improvement 

This role would suit someone who has

•    a passion for working with people and getting the best out of them
•    the ability to lead others confidently and achieve high levels of colleague engagement
•    the motivation to coach and develop your team and help them to progress their careers
•    the passion and drive to deliver great results
•    strong communication skills, with the ability to deal with colleagues at all levels  

Why Co-op?

Here you’ll do work that matters. We’re a unique organisation with a purpose beyond profit, and you’ll have an opportunity to help us build a stronger Co-op and stronger communities. You’ll also get a package that includes:

•    a competitive salary
•    an annual paid community day where you can get out and support local good causes
•    great holiday allowance (rising in line with service)
•    discounts on Co-op products and services
•    a pension with up to 10% employer contributions
•    extensive wellbeing and support benefits

Building an inclusive workplace

We’re actively building diverse teams and we welcome applications from everyone. We want to create an inclusive workplace where everyone can give their best and realise their full potential, and the depot has been designed with colleague welfare at the heart of the operation. 

Colleague focussed facilities have been built into the fabric of the site, including outdoor break areas, a wellness area and contemplation room, ample showers, and large and open unisex locker rooms and gender-neutral toilets.

We can make reasonable adjustments to our interview process according to your needs. And we offer a flexible working environment so you can adjust your hours to suit your personal circumstances. You can find out more about Co-op people policies at

Your decision

Applying for a job You can apply for a job with us online. Unlike other jobs, we’re not looking at your experience and what you’ve done before, but only that you match our values as a business, and that you have the capability and the passion to do a great job. Don't have a CV? Our CV builder is here to help. It's a simple form you can complete on your desktop or mobile that lets you create a great CV in minutes.

Online assessment As part of your application you’ll need to complete an online assessment which will measure how well your behaviours, values and motivations match up to this role and our overall Co-op culture. It will take around 20 minutes to complete this assessment.

Phone call Once you’ve completed the assessment, if you’re successful and shortlisted for the next stage, you’ll get a phone call from one of our colleagues. We know how important it is for candidates to speak to a real person – to ask questions and be reassured of their application.

Interview If you pass your online assessment and short phone call, you’ll be asked to come to one of our stores for an interview.

We’ll send you an email for you to choose a date and time for your interview online – but if you can’t make it, don’t worry, you can provide the Hiring Manager times of when’s best for you. Before your interview, we’ll send you a really helpful guide on how best to prepare, so nothing on the day should surprise you, and most importantly what proof you need to bring to prove your right to work in the UK.

Your decision If you’re successful at your interview, you’ll receive a phone call from the hiring manager you met to talk about your job offer. If you accept, we’ll then send your offer online via an email. Before anything can be processed, we'll need you to accept this offer online. This will start your journey into our Co-op.
