Job Details

This isn't just an ordinary warehouse

We use innovative and state-of-the-art technology, and joining us as a Warehouse Operative means you’ll be working for the world’s largest and fastest-growing online grocery retailer in a safe, clean, fast-paced, warehouse environment.

Our first employees will play a critical role in getting the site ready to operate. This means initially you will be a general warehouse operative working in our Inbound team; unpacking, inspecting, and scanning our storage totes ahead of taking deliveries, and receiving and decanting goods into the totes.

There is no need to have any previous experience as you will receive full training, but you will need to have a good level of fitness, be able to work in multiple temperatures, from chilled to ambient (minimum 2oC), have a good eye for detail and be able to work independently but also be a good team player.

Want to make a real difference to the lives of Ocado customers every day? Great! Here’s what you need to know.

What’s in it for you?

Our people are at the heart of our business and without them we wouldn’t be able to deliver our award-winning service to millions of customers across the country each day. So it’s important to us that along with safe working environments, we support and develop our employees with great benefits and opportunities for career progression.

At work

Set yourself up for your shift with a full breakfast, or dinner, from £1, at our onsite subsidised Cafe. We also have a staff shop where you can buy everyday groceries for a fraction of the normal price, a big saving on your weekly shop! On your breaks, we have a chill out area where you can relax, a room with a pool table and Games. We also have a quiet room if you need somewhere to be alone with your thoughts.

Benefits

We have a whole host of benefits available to you with some of most popular being;

  • Holiday purchase scheme so you can spend more time with family and friends

  • Life assurance - we fund you for 3 x your salary so your loved ones will be financially protected if you were to pass away

  • Dental insurance - claim reimbursement on your family’s dental expenses

  • Digital GP - you and your immediate family have access to unlimited video consultations with a GP

  • A range of discounts at hundreds of retailers including 15% off online shopping at Ocado Retail

  • Free shares - twice a year you will be awarded the value of 0.5% of your annual pay in Ocado shares.

Career Progression

A career at Ocado Group can lead to many things with fantastic opportunities available in both Ocado Logistics, Engineering and beyond.

Many of our managers started their career in one of our Customer Fulfilment Centres, in fact, 90% of our advertised roles are filled by internal colleagues! There are genuine opportunities for you to progress your career and shape the future of Ocado Group.

Don’t have a car? We are setting up a Lift Share scheme where we can look to match your shifts with someone who lives in your area so that you can travel together. You can also choose a brand new bike and accessories (up to £1k) while saving on tax and NI, with our cycle to work scheme (repayable over a 12 month period), so not only can you save on car costs but increase your fitness levels too!

Everyone at Ocado Group takes personal responsibility to help create an inclusive workplace, where staff respect one another, feel valued for their differences and can be themselves. We are committed to providing reasonable adjustments, wherever needed so everyone feels welcome and can flourish.

Things to consider:

  • We have both ambient and chill (0 to 5℃) sections in our warehouse and you will be expected to work in both.

  • Our roles require you to be on your feet and mobile at all times as well as carrying out repetitive tasks and potentially lifting up to 25kg weights.

  • You will be required to handle both meat and alcohol products.

  • We will provide you with great training and the correct Personal Protective Equipment.
