We are seeking a Yardman/Forklift Driver to undertake general Yard forklift duties. You will be responsible for keeping the yard tidy and organised, bringing items in and out of the factory on request, loading/unloading the Paint Shop and Blasting Shop, and for loading of machinery for despatch and unloading of goods in.
You will be a team player, able to manage a busy workload whilst operating in a safe and efficient manner. You must be experienced and have a current forklift licence, ideally up to 5T.
You will also be prepared to work planned and unplanned overtime at short notice, especially where loading of goods for shipment has been delayed by late arrival of transport on site. This may also mean that overtime working on Saturday mornings is required. Overtime is very regularly available and is paid at time and a half weekdays/Saturday and double time Sunday, so if you wish to take advantage of this to boost your earnings there is plenty of opportunity to do so.
You may also be asked to work in other departments on a temporary basis to provide cover, training will be provided for this and you should expect that this will be required occasionally.
