Position description

We are looking for someone to join our team at Jewson Bracknell (RG12 1NU) as a part time Yard Assistant working 30 hours per week!

As a Yard Assistant, your role will be essential to keeping our branch and yard running smoothly. From serving our customers in the yard to loading vehicles ready for delivery, and from monitoring stock to growing our sales, you’ll be at the heart of our operations.

We’re a busy and well established branch with a friendly team who pride ourselves on offering a great service and excellent product knowledge. We have a sales office, warehouse, shop & counter, timber supply and customer delivery vehicles.

Experience within our industry is not essential, we are committed to providing you with the full tools and support required to carry out your role within Jewson. If you love working with people, you’re a good listener and you think you could help our customers feel welcome, then this could be a great opportunity for you to join our team as a Yard Assistant!

So, what will you be doing?

Our Yard Assistants have a strong focus on customer service as well as working out in the yard, so this role is great for someone who loves to build relationships with customers and enjoys working outdoors. We will provide you with full work-wear and PPE and your day-to-day duties will include:

  • Welcome customers to the branch and take an active interest in their projects
  • Get to know our product lines so you can offer help and advice to customers
  • Help to process and prepare customer orders
  • Load and unload customer and supplier vehicles using a forklift truck to minimise manual handling (training will be provided!)
  • Check incoming deliveries and report missing or damaged products
  • Maintain stock levels in both the shop and yard areas, carrying out regular stock counts
  • Keep the branch looking clean and tidy and make Health & Safety a priority

Having a forklift license or previous experience diving one would be an advantage, but we are happy to organise training for you!

Hours of Work: 30 hours per week - shift pattern can be discussed at interview stage
