Distribution Distribution warehouse

Distribution at Toolstation is all about getting the right product to the right place at the right time.

In order to deliver this challenge we look for people who have the ability to work in a fast paced, responsive and dynamic environment where the customer comes first in everything we do.

Our Distribution Centres are vitally important to our growing multi-channel business so whether it is delivering a quality product and service to a customers home from our Bridgwater site or to their local store from our Redditch depot, we know that our teams have the drive and passion to do this time and time again.

All of our sites have experienced huge growth in recent years and this has resulted in our teams enjoying lots of opportunities to grow with the business.

Warehouse operatives will be tasked with receiving, replenishing, picking, checking and packing of products and will be able to communicate effectively in order to work closely with colleagues in a continuous improvement and team working culture.
