£54,000 up to £75,000 per hour (pro rata) - This isn’t day-to-day management. This is inspiring leadership.

Our huge distribution centres stock every product we sell in our stores. And they never stop. 24 hours a day, our teams receive, manage and ship out products from across our many different warehouse sections, including fruit and veg, meat and poultry, alcohol and frozen goods.

Our Goods Out team make sure the right products get loaded into trucks and shipped off to our stores, night and day. As Team Manager, you'll inspire and motivate them to get it spot on, shift after shift. It's hands-on and hard work.

You'll stay calm and keep track of every detail, even when things get busy. As well as managing hauliers, you'll book in deliveries to stores in your area, planning shipping schedules so every store gets exactly the stock they need, when they need it.
To lead and develop Warehouse Operatives and Assistant Team Managers, you'll need to be  assertive, happy handling strong personalities and building relationships across our supply chain. It's full-on, fast-paced and not for the faint-hearted. And you wouldn't want it any other way.
