Jobs @ Tesco's Distribution Centre

Tesco’s Distribution Centre (DC) in Reading will be taking on the work of another DC site that is closing in Hertfordshire – with the creation of approximately 130 new jobs locally.

Reading  DWP JobCentre – are supporting recruitment at the site and will be running pre-employment courses with Reading College in the near future.  These courses will cover H&S, Lifting, and support for on-line applications.  We’ve also asked them to look at Fork Lift training as well, though initially the work will be for manual pickers.

Please note this is for anyone aged 18 years and over – the DC is a pressurised environment with very tight daily targets (which must be hit during the initial probation period) so won’t suit everyone.  The centre runs very tight safety regimes, including regular alcohol and drug testing (with zero tolerance for anyone testing positive).

The centre will not offer work experience or shadowing, so the end outcome will be applying for a full time job (including shift patterns, some of which may suit single parents).
