Recruitment agency Blue Arrow has been asked to find 200 new warehouse operatives and forklift truck drivers over the coming weeks.

Geoff Taylor from Blue Arrow said: “John Lewis is consistently recognised by independent surveys as an outstanding employer to work for.

“These new roles will get 200 people into work, and offer genuine long-term work opportunities for the right people.

“We are therefore keen to let as many local people as possible aware of the open day we are holding on Thursday, September 12 between 9am and 4pm at the Blue Arrow office in Milton Keynes.”

Warehouse operative and forklift truck driver roles attract a basic salary ranging from £6.25 to £9.00 per hour. As a busy warehouse, a variety of shifts are available which may also include weekend working.

Blue Arrow will be providing the employment contracts for staff,

“No experience is required for the warehouse operative roles, but forklift truck drivers will need to have their FLT licence and some previous experience, along with a desire to do a good job and work as a part of a strong team,” added Mr Taylor.
