We’ll look for you to get involved in all areas of the warehouse and no two days will look the same.

• strong administration skills and experience 
• great organisation skills
• the ability to work towards deadlines
• great knowledge and experience of using Microsoft Office (Word, Excel etc)
• ideally have experience working in a busy and service driven warehouse environment, but this isn’t essential

Why Co-op?

• competitive rates of pay
• 31 days holiday (rising in line with service)

• a pension with up to 10% employer contributions

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.
