Debenhams Stockroom Assistants play a vital role in our store teams to ensure our products are ready and available for our customers. They have a logical and organised approach towards ensuring the safe transition of our stock from delivery through to the sales floor. Often operating behind the scenes they are dedicated to making sure the shop floor remains well stocked and quickly replenished, processing the deliveries that arrive daily.

Our Stockroom Assistants are calm yet adaptable and flexible to the ever changing demands and priorities that this role operates within.

From the arrival of our deliveries you will support the unloading, sorting, tagging and sizing of stock in preparation for its arrival to the shop floor as well as using our in house technology to identify and record the required products.

They promote a positive and willing approach towards product availability and presentation, ensuring all sizes, colours and styles are available for our customers to buy.

You will be required to identify stock discrepancies or damages when processing our products and deliveries therefore a strong attention to detail and accuracy is essential. Working within this environment you will require an awareness of security at all times to ensure our stock room remains a safe environment for all staff. You will be required to demonstrate an understanding of health and safety and manual handling guidelines which you will apply when climbing ladders or lifting heavy items.

Please consider the above criteria carefully before starting your application, as when recruiting it’s important to us that we are the right choice for you, as well as you being the right choice for us. We believe it is the people we employ that make the difference to our customers’ shopping experience. Our people take pride in what we do, what we sell and the standards we expect. They are passionate about working with Debenhams and care about doing their very best for every customer.

This is a fully flexible role and will require you to work up to 5 out of 7 full days per week for which rotas will be provided 4 weeks in advance (including weekends & bank holidays). The days and times for each shift may vary depending on the business needs.

We are looking at the following shift pattern but this can change depending on Business needs:

Monday Tuesday & Wednesday 13.30 to 21.30

Day Off Thursday

Friday 10.00 to 18.00

Saturday 9.00 to 17.00

Due to the location of the warehouse, own transport is needed.

Occasionally we will close vacancies prior to the published expiry date if we receive high volumes of applications; therefore to avoid disappointment we recommend that you submit your application early.
