Job Description


Funky Hampers are recruiting for Christmas staff with start dates ranging from now to November. The temporary positions may lead to offers of permanent employment for suitable candidates.

Please read this post in full to ensure you are suitable.

The job role will be helping in the preparation of our range of gifts and gift hampers. This may include packing sweets as well as possibly packaging up gift hampers and boxes as well as the creation of some of our more custom gifts. It will involve some lifting, for example, you may have to carry a few 3KG bags of bulk sweets from our warehouse to your desk to start breaking down into smaller bags. The job role itself can be intense as we are currently very busy. Pay will be around minimum wage + holidays etc. You will be working in a very social atmosphere with other dispatch staff.

The ideal staff members will be hard working and easy to get on with as you will be working in an extremely busy environment. We work hard to find new staff members that will fit in with our team so really focus on personality.

We are seeking full time staff members only with hours being Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm and also at least 4 of 6 Saturdays starting from Nov 14th (usually for around 5 hours per Saturday) with the option for additional overtime some evenings and weekends. We can’t consider part time. Our warehouse is in Deanland Road, Golden Cross, BN27 3RP but you may also be required to work at our additional warehouse in Upper Dicker which is not near any local transport so you would need to drive. You will also be handling various different foods so this role may not be suitable for those with severe allergies.

Those who are successful will be contacted to arrange an interview.
