Looking to join a brand that is passionate about its employees, where virtually no day is the same? Then we have the perfect role for you here at IDS, the UK's largest distributor of surfacing materials, specialising in flooring, worktops, laminates, panel products and solid surfacing.

We’re looking for an enthusiastic Branch Assistant to join our IDS Battersea team and support the smooth running of branch operations by delivering excellent customer service to all of our customers.

As a Branch Assistant with IDS, you will:

  • Ensure all orders are processed accurately, in full and on time.
  • Maintain the showroom to a high standard to effectively promote the full range of IDS products.

  • Take pride in delivering excellent customer service and building relationships with internal and external customers.
  • Demonstrate excellent communication skills, both written and verbal.
  • Have the ability to work to deadlines and without close supervision.
  • Hold a forklift license, this would be an advantage, however full training will be provided.

...we may just be the right fit for each other! Does this sound like you?

  • A defined contribution pension scheme.
  • 31 days holiday (including bank holidays).
