Forced closure between Christmas and the New Year (holiday to be taken).

A friendly working environment.

We are a friendly and loyal company that would love to welcome some new people to become highly valued members of our team. We appreciate honesty and reliability.

If you are truly interested in joining our team then please apply today. If you are not genuinely interested, then we kindly ask that you do not apply for the role as it takes a lot of time and effort for us to go over CV’s and contact potential candidates.

You will be working mostly from the Simply Shutters warehouse on Station Way.
We are a stockist of interior louvre doors with over 3000 doors available in ‘off the shelf’ sizes. We are also a manufacturer and supplier of external, decorative window shutters.
Our warehouse consists of stock of our louvre doors and also component for our shutter ranges. In addition to wrapping louvre doors and shutters part of your role will be to maintain stock and cleanliness of the warehouse.
We carry various sizes of interior louvre doors starting from 18″ Tall up to 86.6″ Tall. Your role will be to pick orders from the shelves and pack them to our high standard. Whilst the doors themselves are not overly heavy, they can be quite cumbersome to handle. We also require you to pack our shutters which are custom made so, again, are available in varying heights and widths. Some of these shutters can be quite heavy and so taking this into consideration along with packing orders within the required timeframe you will need to be physically fit and able to handle these items. Please note full training is given.
This is the main packing workstation where you will be based when packing doors and shutters. We also have a workshop where you will be trained on building our shutters as the position requires shutter building from time to time.
