What you can expect

A warehousing Apprenticeship is a valuable doorway of opportunity for learners and employees to progress in their industry. 

Warehouse operatives, depending on the size of the company, undertake a range of duties, working alone or in a team, including loading/unloading of vehicles and selecting and packing customer orders, ensuring goods are ready for dispatch on time.  Senior Warehouse staff take additional responsibility for looking after teams to ensure tasks are completed on time and in line with organisational and customer requirements.

There are approximately 4,900 workplaces in England whose primary function is in freight transport activities, employing around 132,00 people directly in warehousing operations. The Warehousing Industry is part of a wider logistics sector, that employs around 8% of the workforce in England and provides many opportunities to jobs and training in other parts of logistics such as Traffic Office and Purchasing and Supply Chain Management.

A Warehousing Operative Intermediate Level Apprenticeship is an investment in the skills you need to succeed in the hospitality industry. These skills include:

  • Good organisational skills
  • The ability to work in a team or alone
  • A general understanding of health and safety
  • Willingness to learn new techniques and methods
  • A real ‘can-do’ attitude

 

The exact details of your job depend on your specific employer, but typically in a full-time job you would normally work 40 hours a week, usually part of a shift system covering five to seven days. Part-time work, temporary work and overtime options are often available. As a warehousing operative, your role could include any of the following:

  • Checking for damaged or missing items
  • Storing goods
  • Taking delivery of goods and supplies
  • Moving stock around by hand, using lifting gear or a forklift truck
  • Picking and packing orders

 

You’ll also learn:

  • Keeping records of stock
  • Keeping paperwork up to date

At the age of 30 I completed my Advanced Level Apprenticeship in Warehousing & Storage. After working at Topps Tiles for ten years my ambition now is to become a manager. My apprenticeship has not only taught me more about my current role, but has definitely given me the opportunity to achieve my goal.
