Job Description

Are you a hard-working person with warehouse experience gained in a regulated environment? A 6-month contract position has arisen within the busy warehouse team of a leading Pharmaceutical company in Worthing, West Sussex. Working Monday to Friday (7am to 3pm, with a slightly later finish during busy periods), this will be a fascinating role to help in the shipping of life-changing medicines to people across Europe, processing goods in and out. If you have experience from a controlled warehouse (Pharmaceutical, Food, Medical Device or similar) this will be a great opportunity to build your experience and join a fascinating business. Interviews will be in mid-June and the successful candidate will start in July. You will be paid £8.50 per hour.

The Company
A pioneering Worthing-based Pharmaceutical company specialising in the treatment and prevention of allergies such as hay fever and asthma. They produce injectable and oral drugs for individual allergy sufferers. The company is well known in the local area for its positive and supportive working environment.

The Role
You will be based in a small and busy Warehouse area, supporting the production and packaging of vaccines and diagnostic kits.

You will be responsible for receiving deliveries of incoming goods, recording everything in the company’s Tropos system, checking items and organising them using set processes to ensure that everything runs smoothly. You will operate warehouse and transport equipment (including a fork lift) to process and store items and will be responsible for the correct disposal of certain items, as well as participating in stock takes and other routine and non-routine activities.

You will work in a small team and it is therefore important that you have a positive attitude, great communication skills and the ability to pick new things up quickly. We are looking for a self-sufficient person who takes real pride in your work and can organise your own time. You will work good, consistent reasonable hours (7am – 3pm, with a slightly later finish during busy times) and will join a friendly team in a pleasant, modern building. The company offers kitchen facilities and free parking.

We are looking for a hard-working, self-sufficient individual who can manage your own time and work well in a small warehouse with two other people. You will be in a highly regulated area so you will need to demonstrate that you understand and respect working in a process-driven environment and can undertake manual and system-based responsibilities (the company uses the “Tropos” IT system) across goods in, stock control / moving and inspection activities.

Above all else, we want someone who works consistently hard, who offers excellent communication skills (both written and verbal), good literacy and numeracy, patience, an honest and likeable manner and strong attention to detail. You must be available for an interview in mid-June (date to be confirmed) and must be able to start in July. You must also be able to work on up until the end of December, as this will be a very important day for the company’s final dispatch operations of the year.

Full details will be provided on application, so please get in touch now!
