Job Details

We are currently recruiting for experienced Counterbalance Forklift Drivers for a company based in Minworth/Sutton Coldfield. A minimum of 6 months experience is mandatory, as this is is a very fast-paced environment. In return, long term career opportunities with plenty of overtime are available for the right candidate.

This Counterbalance Forklift Driver opportunity is one that is very fast paced and will require you to work off your own initiative as well as taking clear instructions and following out tasks given by the supervisors/managers. You must be fully aware of your surroundings as you will be operating in a very large open-floor warehouse with other Counterbalance Forklift Drivers and lorry drivers operating within the same area.

You must be able to work night shifts - 20:00pm til 05:00am, so having your own transport would be advantageous due to it being a difficult commute without.

You will be required to undertake and MUST pass a Drug & Alcohol test, Induction and FLT assessment. Please do not apply if you are not confident you will pass the Drug & Alcohol test.

To begin with you will work 3-5 day shifts from 11:30 til 20:30 so you can be assessed on how confident and disciplined you are as a Counterbalance Forklift Driver. Once passed, you will then be moved onto night shifts working from 20:00 til 05:00. Due to the location, having your own transport is advisable due to a lack of public transport in the early hours of the morning.

You MUST have an in date Counterbalance FLT License. A Reach fork truck licence would be helpful as there are other departments within this high-dock warehouse which rely on the storage/retrieval of goods from high racking.

Pay Rate - £8.50ph days - £9.50ph nights
