Full Job Description

Joining our friendly and hard working family as a Yard Customer Assistant, you'll be on the front line dealing with our customers that come into our yard. As part of the branch team, you will play a vital role in our continued success, providing a first class service.
What will I be doing?
Not one day is the same as the next in TP branch life, but here are a few pointers:

  • Our success is built on strong relationships with our customers so it's essential that you can help deliver the highest standards of service - the key thing is to be helpful and friendly at all times, you will likely get to know our customers on a first name basis.

  • You will be based outside, processing our customer orders, loading and unloading customer and company vehicles.

  • You will also unload our building products from supplier deliveries and accurately book them in the branch warehouse.

  • Full training is provided in order to drive our forklifts.

  • Safety is at the forefront of everything we do, your aim will be to ensure that our standards never slip, this means maintaining a tidy and safe working environment.


  • This role is based at Travis Perkins Much Wenlock branch. This role is a 30 hour flex up role. This means in the busier periods it is likely that you can expect full time hours working within our branch, but at winter times you are still guaranteed 30 hours to fit around other responsibilities you may have. This makes it the perfect role for someone who wants to get their foot on the door with our business.

    My name is Natalie, and I currently work as part of the recruitment team here at Travis Perkins, but I started of my career in my local branch when I was 18 completing a development programme, which I then became a Branch Supervisor Let me tell you more about us, and why you should consider a career with our brilliant business.
    Let's be honest, no one grows up with a burning passion to work in a builders merchant (well, I know I certainly didn't!). I didn't really know what to expect, but since joining, I have been supported by an amazing team that have an unrivalled passion to provide an excellent level of service to our local customers (typically builders and tradespeople) and I'm now working in a completely different area of the business in an area that I love.
    I hope that you're as excited about this role as I am, and that my first hand experience has provided a small insight into what we do here. Apply today, you won't regret it!
    We're driving to become a truly inclusive employer. We want everyone to be at their best and it's our ambition that everyone within our Group feels safe, welcome and confident to be their authentic selves.
