Job Description

  • Dispatch Technician (temp role)
  • 2 Fixed-term contracts from early July until the end of 2017
  • Worthing, West Sussex
  • £15,500 pro rata (on company’s payroll)
  • Monday to Friday, 8am – 4pm
  • Excellent attention to detail and strong work ethic ESSENTIAL

Two urgent temporary roles have arisen for hard-working, mature and reliable people, to join a leading Pharmaceutical company in Worthing, on a temporary basis from the beginning of July until the end of December. If you have experience from a packaging, labelling, admin, mail sorting, print, despatch or warehouse environment, and can start at short notice, this will be a fascinating role to help in the shipping of life-changing medicines to people across Europe. Interviews will take place in the middle of June and the successful candidates will join at the start of July. If you are available at short notice and have a positive attitude, good work ethic and strong attention to detail, apply now!

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
Working in a small, busy team of up to 7 people, you will be responsible for processing individual patient orders, printing product labels, packaging orders into jiffy bags, and preparing them for dispatch. Using your attention to detail to the full, you will ensure that all drug packets are correctly put in bags, with the right labels (printed in the department) and placed in the right areas for distribution to countries all over Europe (and some worldwide). You will use the in-house computer system to process customer orders and it is essential that you show strong attention to detail at all times.

You will work reasonable hours (8am – 4pm) and will be treated as a permanent employee, not a temp. You will work in a friendly team in a pleasant, modern office. The company offers kitchen facilities and free parking.

You do not need experience in a Pharmaceutical company, but it would be an advantage to have worked in a regulated environment (warehouse, distribution, mail sorting / post room, packaging, printing or production) where you have performed routine duties (including administration) but had to have your wits about you at all times. 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 at short notice for an interview 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 despatch operations of the year.
