Our mission remains unchanged: to service the needs and aspirations of our customers and help create new stories, to take pleasure in making marked moments of delight. Whoever our customers are and wherever they come from, they can expect to be treated with grace, courtesy and care.

About You
You will have keen attention to detail and a high level of care and accuracy at all times, maintaining current standards of Health and Safety awareness within the business and demonstrating the ability to perform in a very physical, hands on position. Excellent communication skills are essential for this role as you will directly report any areas of concern to the Line Manager on duty immediately.

You will be able to safely drive a counterbalance forklift and must hold a valid C1E Driving Licence.

What to Expect
As a Site Services Operative, you will assist with the coordination of the Harrods recycling operation, maintaining the warehouse and outside operations at our Distribution Centre at Thatcham near Reading. You will be maintaining the cleanliness of the warehouse and yards, using the relevant equipment provided. Guidelines should be followed for all automated equipment.

You will be tasked with safely unloading, sorting, stacking, repairing and loading of pallets onto the trailer, whilst sorting waste from both the main and satellite sites.

What is important?
Impeccable time-management skills and the ability and willingness to multi-task are key qualities for this role, and you should be prepared to work in all weather conditions/temperatures, as this role requires outside working all year round.

Your shift pattern will be on rotation and may include days, nights, and weekends – it is essential you can commit to flexible working hours.

Our Promise to You

At Harrods we believe nothing is impossible. We drive ourselves and inspire others to always push for more. This passion to exceed is what sets us apart. We are proud to be a place where standing out means being yourself.
