Re~Cycle is hiring a Warehouse Supervisor

Re~Cycle is busier than ever and we are looking for someone to help with our increased success...

Full Time - 5 days a week (and every other Saturday morning)

Salary - £18,000 per annum

Millions of unwanted bicycles are rusting in garages or being thrown away in the UK, while in Africa, a four-hour daily walk is common. Mothers collect clean water, parents trek to the farm, factory or market and children can walk up to 20 miles to get to school and back.

The charity collects unwanted bikes, parts and tools in the UK and ships them to Africa, 59,000 so far. There, our trusted and capable partners refurbish and maintain the bikes, to ensure a long life before distributing them to people as an affordable means of transport. Many teach locals to repair their own bikes, helping them to improve their lives in a sustainable way.

The successful candidate will have:

  • Experience of a warehouse, workshop or distribution environment
  • Experience of working with a structured and methodical approach to tasks and have the ability to change priorites as necessary
  • A proven track record of building and developing good working relationships with colleagues and external contacts
  • Confident team leader skills
  • Good communication skills

The post holder must be self motivated and able to work on his/her own initiative and be confident at managing and prioritising a varied workload.
