About the role

This role is crucial in making sure our shops get all of the items they have ordered so that they can give our loyal Greggs customers a great customer service.

This is a physically demanding role as the manual handling of boxes, picking and packing of cages and the pushing and pulling of cages are also an integral part of the role. Working as part of a great team, you’ll have a good eye for detail to ensure full pick accuracy. You’ll ensure our trucks are at the right temperature ready to load, and products are loaded into the correct compartment for chill, ambient or frozen.

Reporting to the Operational Team Leaders, you will be an enthusiastic, reliable individual who is able to work alone as well as in a team and take pride in your work. Initiative, problem solving and attention to detail are critical in the success of this role.

Hours of work may be unsociable and shift patterns vary, so flexibility is essential.
