Working as a Warehouse Operative you’ll provide a critical service to Severn Trent Water Wholesale.  Typical tasks involve end to end Stock Management, liaising with Team leaders, Distribution, Water Production & Waster Water Team Managers, Engineers and other key stakeholders.  You’ll be supporting your manager on all Health, Safety and Environmental standards and you’ll be working face to face with internal and external stores customers offering excellent customer service, seeking to be the preferred supplier of choice.


The primary role will be Finham (Coventry) based but you may be expected to cover and work in other regions such as Warwickshire, Gloucestershire and Central in line with business needs so a valid driving licence is required.  This role is a permanent opportunity.


Due to the nature of the role we are looking for someone with experience in a manual and physical role especially those from a Warehouse/Supply Chain background who also has good I.T skills in order to fulfil the administrative aspects of the role.







You’ll be receipting, issuing and returning stock via bar-coding / SAP computer systems including electronic internal transfers of materials where required to meet materials requirement needs.  You’ll make sure all materials movements are conducted via the bar-coding / SAP system to support financial code & legal audit compliance.


You’ll identify materials replenishment needs via scheduled SAP generated runs and physical observation as well as monitoring purchase requisitions to assess successful progression to purchase orders with agreed suppliers.  Daily/adhoc tasks will need to be carried out as and when required to make sure the Warehouse operation runs smoothly; including but not limited to operation of heavy plant lifting equipment and manual lifting equipment, housekeeping duties including using floor cleaners, data entry for stock control, inspections on vehicles, mobile plant, office workplace, etc.


You’ll frequently liaise with a number of stakeholders both internally and externally so we would be looking for someone who is a confident communicator. 






We’re looking for you to have previous Warehouse experience, if you have a Fork-lift Truck licence (Reach & Counterbalance) this would be a bonus, but this isn’t essential as training can be provided.



The right skills and experience are important. But if you have the right character, positivity and a caring attitude we want to talk to you, too.
