​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Start 2023 with a new role as a Warehouse Operative for the UKs largest foodservice provider. You don’t need any previous experience – just the enthusiasm to learn and become part of our team. At Brakes we have a diverse and inclusive culture that empowers our people to be the best they can be. As the UK industry leader, we offer job security and career development – with the family feel, rewards and recognition of our friendly warehouse team in Harlow. We take pride in looking after our people. So, as well as plenty of perks, a generous salary, realistic bonuses and other financial rewards, you’ll enjoy the training and support to go far.

We supply great food to some of the best-known restaurants and pubs. As a Warehouse Operative, you’ll pick, pack and check the quality of these ambient, chilled and frozen food items, ready for our drivers to deliver. It starts with a full induction, but with our backing and optional accredited training that includes forklift, first aid and HGV driving, there’s no limit to your potential. In fact, almost 90% of our managers started here. So, once you’re in, there are plenty of opportunities to move shifts, move roles and move up – if that’s what you want to do.

​​​​​​​​​​​​As well as an eye for detail, you’ll need to be comfortable in a cool environment (we’ll provide a free thermal uniform to keep you warm), have your own transport to get here and ideally have a driving licence. In return, you’ll enjoy job stability and benefits such as:

  • Subsidised hot meals via our staff canteen
  • Heavily discounted quality food through staff sales
  • Free onsite parking
  • Pension scheme
  • Generous annual leave with option to buy more
  • Reward, recognition and referral schemes
  • Charitable events to get involved with
  • And last but not least, a health and wellbeing programme.
